I’m Dr. David and you can ask me anything about HIV.
Oh, this is a really good question. Let me break it down for you.
You wouldn’t necessarily know if you had HIV. HIV can sometimes just go on its merry way. You may have a mild illness at the beginning or nothing at all and then it stays in your body just reproducing.
As soon as that test is positive, that virus is working actively against your immune system. So, the sooner you can get on medications control how fast the virus re replicates itself, then you’re gonna reduce the amount of destruction that happens to your immune system.
