Hello Adhie, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain your risk factors until now you feel you have HIV. HIV is a virus that is transmitted through contact with body fluids of people affected by HIV, such as blood, vaginal fluid, seminal fluid, prejaculate fluid, anal fluid, and breast milk. The methods of transmission are through unsafe sexual relations with HIV sufferers, the use of syringes together with HIV sufferers, pierced sharp objects contaminated with body fluids that contain HIV, transmission from mother to baby during childbirth and breastfeeding, and blood transfusions and organ transplant.
If you have contacts as mentioned above, you should indeed do an HIV check. HIV infection in the early stages usually does not provide specific symptoms. Symptoms that appear almost the same as flu symptoms, such as mild fever, malaise, sore throat, headache, indigestion, muscle and joint pain, sometimes can also be accompanied by rashes and enlarged lymph nodes. Because of these non-specific symptoms, an HIV diagnosis must be made by laboratory examination.
Laboratory examinations should be done as soon as possible. If you are indeed infected with HIV, then this virus will slowly cause damage to your body's immune system, so that your body will no longer be strong against diseases / infections that enter your body, even normal microorganisms found in the human body can become severe infections in people with HIV (referred to as opportunistic infections).
HIV testing is actually available everywhere and in any country. You can consult your local doctor if you do have risk factors.
