HIV/AIDS: How To Know If Your Partner Is HIV Positive According To Doctor
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is caused by a virus, or germ, called HIV (AIDS). People who do certain things have a higher chance of getting HIV. You can only find out if you have the virus if you get an HIV test.
Having HIV doesn’t always mean you have AIDS, though. For people to get AIDS, it can take years. People who have HIV or AIDS can’t be cured. The term “AIDS” is used when people with HIV have very few T cells or get certain infections or cancers, which makes them very sick.
SIGNS AND CAUSES
The question is how do people get HIV?
You can get HIV if body fluids from someone who has HIV get into your bloodstream and make their way into your body. There are many different kinds of body fluids: blood, sperm, vaginal fluids, fluids from the anus, breast milk, and so on.
Through the mouth, anus, penis, and vagina (the penis and vagina are sex organs), or through broken skin, the virus can get into the blood. All people can get HIV.
You can have HIV and still spread the virus to other people. Pregnant women who have HIV can also pass the virus on to their babies, which can make them sick.
People get HIV most often when they have sex with someone who has the virus and shares a needle to take drugs.
What are the signs of HIV?
Some people get flu-like symptoms about a month or two after they get sick with the virus. This is known as the acute stage. These symptoms are usually gone in a week to a month, but they can stay for a long time. Before you get sick, you can have HIV for years. This is called clinical latency or the long-term stage of things.

As someone who has AIDS, you’re much more likely to get cancers like lymphoma and Kaposi’s Sarcoma, as well as more common types of cancers like invasive cervical cancer and anal cancer. You’re also more likely to get cancers of the mouth, throat, and lung if you have them.
People who get thrush are infected with Candida fungus. Every part of the body, from your lips to your vagina, can get it. It can also happen to your skin, nails, and other parts of your body.
It can be hard to deal with the cases, but when thrush affects the esophagus or parts of the respiratory system, it can be dangerous (trachea, bronchi, lung tissue).
In most cases, it is caused by Pneumocystis jirovecii, a bacteria, and Streptococcus pneumonia, a virus.
When food and water are dirty, salmonella can get into people’s bodies. It makes you have diarrhea, vomit, and be sick.
