I’m Dr. Flash and I’m here to answer your questions about HIV.
When you first get infected, some people have no symptoms, some people have symptoms that kind of feel like a cold.
Many people, even without getting treatment, they actually feel better. They’re not getting better, they just feel better.
And so over time their immune system can be getting weaker and weaker and weaker, and they don’t feel a thing until it’s really late in the course of disease.
And so, no, you won’t have a magical light bulb that goes off that says, “Oh, I’m infected.”
There’s no sign that goes across your forehead that says, “Oh, now I have it. I have HIV.”
If you wanna know your status, get tested.
