4 HIV Symptoms that women shouldn’t ignore

Symptoms

HIV symptoms are far and wide, and you should always stay on top of what is happening to you. If you realise that you have more than a few of these symptoms happening to you at the same time, then it is time to go to your doctor and get yourself checked. It is best to stay safe, than risking manifestation of the virus to an advanced stage. We suggest that you go for health check-ups regularly, but if you can’t, then go at least when the going starts to get tough. Here in this article, we have looked into symptoms of HIV that occur in women and those symptoms that are commonly ignored.

  1. Early Bird

Like the early bird, these symptoms seem absolutely harmless. As soon as you contract HIV, you should start getting a mild flu-like symptom with fever, cough and cold. That combination as such is quite common, but if you have indulged in sexual intercourse recently, then it should be a spot of worry. Most people don’t show advanced symptoms for years, so it is best to get yourself checked as soon as you are aware that your body is responding to something after coitus.

  1. Skin

Your skin is among the first organs that react to HIV. Rashes start to form on the skin and unless you have had an allergic reaction to something such as pollen or a bug bite. We suggest that you go see your doctor and explain to him or her that you have had flu-like symptoms followed by skin rashes. Along with skin rashes, it is also quite common to get skin sores. Skin rashes and sores when occurring together need to be checked by a dermatologist, ASAP.

  1. Swollen Glands

Swollen-Glands

HIV, when it starts to spread, is counteracted by the body’s immune system. The immune cells are stored in the lymph nodes, and they start working overtime. If you feel that lymph nodes are enlarged in any way, then it is because the nodes are working on high throttle. So if you feel that any of your glands or nodes are enlarging, then go to your doctor and get a blood work done to ensure that it isn’t life altering or life-changing in any way.

  1. Night Sweats

Low-temperature fevers are common with people suffering from HIV, but this is never headed any concern because fever is quite common. To distinguish this from a regular fever, you will get night sweats. Night sweats will start interfering with your system and result in insomnia or disturbed sleep.

How to prevent HIV?

HIV positive

HIV used to really scary not so long ago. But these days with the development of medical technology, HIV is not only preventable but also really manageable. Considering where we are present, we should focus on prevention, even though the cure is not too far away.

  1. Firstly we suggest that you stick to few sexual partners. The more sexual partners you have, the more prone to STDs and HIVs you will be. If you are into one night stands and you have no idea about the person’s medical history or history of STDs, you can be in a spot of bother sooner rather than later. So in terms of having sex, we suggest that you know exactly what you are getting into or what is getting into you. Knowing your partner’s sexual and medical history is a must for those who are concerned with preventing HIV from manifesting in their body.prevention
  2. The second easy way to prevent HIV from entering your body is to indulge in safe sex. And when we say safe, we mean both in terms of using protection and staying away from anal sex. As pleasurable as it can be, anal sex is one of the major reasons for HIV/AIDS. And when you do indulge in vaginal sex, make sure to use a condom. It is one thing to turn around and say that you don’t feel wholesome while using a condom, but it is a huge deal to turn around and realise that your small moment of pleasure has resulted in a life-long battle against HIV.
  3.  Drugs are a big no no because they can be deadly and fatal for a number of reasons. It is also very likely that you overdose on drugs, due to your lack of knowledge of how your body functions in the presence of drugs in the system. But if you still want to indulge in the high those drugs give you, then we suggest that you utilise the use of sterile injection equipment. A lot of people in the early 2000s had fallen prey to HIV because of the use of infected needles. So as soon as you use the injection for whatever purpose, we suggest that you carefully dispose of the needles away in a medical waste bag. We condone the use of drugs, but we understand that not everyone is going to adhere to the rules
