I believe sex comes with lots of benefits and also risks. You have to be responsible enough, yet some may not able to understand it.
They just dive into sex without knowing the danger it may serve them. Acquiring sexually transmitted disease is a no joke and it’s a serious matter that should be given full attention.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus is one of the leading causes of increasing mortality rate in the world.
It targets the body’s cells that help fight infections and later on your body is more susceptible to diseases and infections.
Best way treat HIV is to know its symptoms first-hand. HIV symptoms may come silence or loud.
It is best to edify yourself, because the only weapon against HIV right now is EDUCATION.
Research shows that the moment HIV enters the body around 40-90 percent of people experience flu like symptoms. The flu is medically termed as acute retroviral syndrome (ARS).
Yet, sometimes HIV is symptomless (10 years) after an infection. This is a very alarming situation because the virus already reproduced massively.
Michael Horberg, MD, director of HIV/AIDS for Kaiser Permanente, in Oakland, California said that HIV symptoms may shows not symptoms at all. Meaning they can be a silent killer.
1. Unexplained Fevers
Fever is the most comment symptoms of HIV infection. This is actually the first sign of acute retroviral syndrome (ARS). Your temperature ranges from 90-100 degrees or more.
Body malaise, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, cough also accompanies fever.
During this time the virus replicates and they massively produce in your blood stream. You immune system is weakened due to virus attack.
Battling the virus allows you to use much of your energy and As a response it causes you to feel tired.
Your body develops fatigue because of an increased use up of energy.
Your body function is not fully well because of the accumulation of virus in your system causing sluggishness in your daily activities.
3. Sore Throat And Headache
These two symptoms are often associated with ARS. If you are exposed to risk factors, this time you have to seek medical help right away.
HIV is most contagious during its earliest stage. Your body may also catch some microbes and germs so you have to be very careful.
4. Swollen Glands, Chills, White Patches On Mouth And Throat
These symptoms are very alarming and as soon as this is seen or even prior to these, tests must be carried out to examine the affected person’s immunity and enable the doctor to administer anti-HIV medication.
5. Skin Rashes
Lesions, rashes and sores on the skin are just an indication of HV virus.
There are actually various skin conditions you may develop like widespread dermatitis; bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections; and skin tumors.
They can be very disturbing, itchy and disturbing to the skin. Xerosis, Atopic dermatitis, Herpes Zooster, Thrush are just few skin infections that you may develop.
Current treatment options include antifungal medications, oral rinses, and oral lozenges.
6. Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea
The feeling of vomiting, vomiting and diarrhea are your body’s response that something is not doing well inside your body.
There is already a presence of organism inside the body that is not present in human with healthy immune system.
7. Weight Loss
Increased weight loss is an indication that your immune system is depleted. It is an alarming way your body’s telling you that you should seek medical help.
Although your eating habit is normal still you losses weight. You should be alarmed this time.
8. Cough And Pneumonia
Cough can later develop into bronchial pneumonia. I suggest that you take necessary precautions in taking care of your health.
You only live once in this world, so make it count.
9. Night Sweats
Night sweats are one of the aggravating symptoms of HIV. It’s like sweating during exercises. Sweating doesn’t just happen at night but also during the day.
Night sweats occur without exercise but usually while you are sleeping.
You can take cool bath and change your bedding regularly.
10. Muscles And Joint Pains
People who have been infected with HIV may develop musculoskeletal system. Patients with HIV may also get joint, soft tissue, muscle or bone problems from the medicines they take to control HIV.
The mentioned symptoms are just the common symptoms men and women experiences. There are still other symptoms which aren’t mentioned above.
It is very important that you’ll be extra careful when it comes to sexual relationship.
Know the person first before you engage in sexual encounter. Not just know the person but establish the right relationship first.
It’s so easy to get lost in this world where men and women desire for affection and approval.
These are actually mundane things which do not provide lasting joy.
I always believe in the power of marriage, the lasting and safe relationship. It’s not just about sex at all.
It’s finding that person who can make you better than yourself and someone who will accept you just the way you are.
There are still other noticeable symptoms that may later develop the moment you acquire HIV, the earlier the treatment the effective the treatment.
You cannot eradicate HIV, you can only lessen its effect and make your immune system combat disease with the help of medical breakthroughs.
Until a cure is found there is only one weapon against HIV and that is EDUCATION.
