HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that attacks the immune system and weakens the body's ability to fight disease or infection.
HIV infection is divided into 3 stages
The first stage, a certain period of time during which HIV antibodies have begun to develop to fight the virus. Symptoms that appear can be similar to flu, usually appearing several weeks after infection. For example sore throat, fever, joint pain, muscle aches. It is estimated, 8 out of 10 people infected with HIV experience this symptom. The second stage, is a period where no symptoms appear. After the initial symptoms disappear, usually HIV does not cause further symptoms for years, so they feel healthy, but can pass the infection to other people. This stage can last 10 years or more. The third stage, which is the last stage of HIV in which the body's ability is weak to fight infection so that the body is susceptible to disease. This final stage is often known as AIDS. Symptoms include fever for more than 10 days, weight loss for no apparent reason, swollen lymph nodes, prolonged diarrhea, fungal infection of the mouth or throat, easy bruising or bleeding for no apparent reason.
