Doctor :   symptoms of HIV and AIDS vary, depending on the phase of infection. When first infected with HIV, you may have no symptoms at all, although it's more common to develop a brief flu-like illness two to six weeks after becoming infected. But because the signs and symptoms of an initial infection which may include fever, headache, sore throat, swollen lymph glands and rash are similar to those of other diseases, you might not realize you've been infected with HIV.

Doctor :   HIV tests aren't accurate immediately after infection because it takes time for your body to develop these antibodies usually about 12 weeks. In rare cases, it can take up to six months for an HIV test to become positive.
