What is the percent certainty that I have HIV?
Hello, Ahmad Yudi
Thank you for your question for HealthReplies.com
Complaints of weakness and lethargy can be triggered by several conditions, such as anemia, hyponatremia, hypothyroidism, viral or bacterial infections, and lifestyle changes such as lack of sleep or working late at night.
HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. This virus attacks the immune system and weakens the body's ability to fight infection and disease.
HIV can be found in the body fluids of an infected person. The fluid in question is sperm fluid, vaginal fluid, anal fluid, blood and breast milk. HIV cannot be spread through urine.
The spread of the HIV virus can occur through unsafe sex, changing needles when using narcotics, through oral sex, sharing or sharing sex aids, blood transfusion from an infected person, transmission from mother to baby during pregnancy, giving birth and breastfeeding.
It is highly recommended to carry out HIV screening, with early HIV diagnosis and effective treatment, people with HIV will not turn into AIDS.
If you feel you are at risk of being infected with the HIV virus, the best way to find out is to do an HIV test accompanied by counseling. Immediately visit the nearest health facility (VCT clinic) for HIV testing. With this test you will know the results of your HIV diagnosis. This test is voluntary and confidential. Before conducting the test, counseling is given first, which aims to determine the level of risk of infection and also the pattern of daily life. After this stage, you will discuss how to deal with an HIV test result if you test positive.
The HIV test is done with a blood test, to determine whether there are antibodies to HIV in the blood or not. HIV testing may be repeated one to three months after a person engages in activities that are suspected of transmitting HIV.
Currently, HIV cannot be cured, but there are treatments that can be used to slow the progression of the disease. This treatment can also make sufferers live longer, so they can lead a normal life.
The best way to prevent HIV is to have sex safely, use protection, never share needles or injecting equipment of any kind. Anyone who has had sex without protection or condoms, and shares needles or injections, has a high risk of becoming infected with HIV.
We recommend that you consult directly with a doctor, so that a physical examination, laboratory examination or other support can be carried out, and appropriate treatment.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
