    Phase 1 - Primo-infection

    This is the earliest stage of HIV infection – when the virus has just gained access into your body and your immune system has begun to react. This phase may be accompanied by symptoms that signal the onset of infection, however, many people have no symptoms whatsoever. When symptoms are present in this stage, they may be characterized by a flu-like illness and/or a mononucleosis-like infection. Some infected persons describe a severe sore throat that refuses to clear up. Some infected individuals develop a skin rash (red spots, plaques etc.). These symptoms typically resolve with time (typically days to weeks).

    Be careful! Just because you have one or several of these aforementioned symptoms does not mean that you necessarily have HIV. These symptoms MAY present in the primo-infection or early stages of HIV, but are too general to be ONLY attributable to HIV infection alone. Symptoms alone do not permit the diagnosis of HIV – the only way to diagnose and confirm an HIV infection is via a blood test.

    Primo-infection typically resolves within weeks (sometimes months) after the virus has invaded your system.
