Hello Hadrian, thank you for asking.
HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system. That is, the condition of HIV infection causes systemic symptoms. The symptoms caused will be very diverse, depending on what tissue is damaged. This virus can affect all kinds of organs. As a result, the symptoms are different in each individual and many resemble the symptoms of other diseases. For example; severe canker sores do not heal, weight decreases dramatically, recurring cough accompanied by poor physical condition, severe diarrhea repeatedly, and so on. You cannot confirm HIV infection without an HIV test.
You should consult with a doctor through VCT. You will be asked to explain your history of risky actions and current symptoms and signs. The doctor will explain what tests might be done. You can test for HIV antibodies, HIV antigens, or viral load. It depends on your condition and the availability of facilities. Afterwards, the doctor will explain the results to you and explain further actions. Before you will be diagnosed with HIV, try to use protection during sexual intercourse and not change partners.
That is my explanation. May be useful. Regards.
