If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
no they are two diferent things, seroconversion is whe the body of an hiv infected person produces detectable antibodies, and ARS is Acute Retroviral Syndrome that is a reaction of the body while fighting with the HIv virus at the beggining of the infection (2-6 weeks after infection) that produces some symptoms only 50% of hiv positive people recall having ARS symptoms and from that 50% the symptoms most frquent where
74% enlarge lymph nodes
70% sore throat
remember only 50% of the people positive hiv had ARS so the symptoms are useless in predicting an hiv infection, the only way to know if someone is infected is getting tested,
Please read all the Drs answers the symptoms are useless are way to common, and only happen in the 50% of the people infected, like I told you in your other post, if you have a negative test at 11weeks and 3 days, doestn matter if you have all the symptoms or no symptoms etheir way you are negative, forget about this, if you continue searching for symptoms, test accurancy, ect. you will continue worried, you are hiv negative, so move on, forget about this, and always use condoms,
