HIV is an acronym for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a virus that attacks cells that help the body prevent infection, making a person more susceptible to other infections and diseases. It is transmitted through contact with certain bodily fluids of a person infected with HIV, most commonly having unprotected sex or through sharing injection drug equipment.
However, with medical care, including treatment known as antiretroviral therapy, it’s possible to manage HIV and live with the virus for years.
HIV if not early treated can cause a disease known as AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome).
Some of the signs of HIV In Women Include.
1. Lack of energy or fatigue
People who have HIV may use a lot of energy as they constantly battle with the virus. This means that fatigue might slowly occur because the body is working so hard to prevent HIV.
2. Weight loss
When you are affected with HIV, you burn calories fast. This could be because your immune system is working harder, or it may be because HIV has impacted the hormones that regulate your metabolism.
3. Fever and night sweats
Since your body works harder to repair itself while in a deep sleep, night sweats are a common symptom of HIV. With fever making this symptom worse, you might wake up sweating.
4. Frequent yeast infections (in the mouth)
Men and women who have HIV can get a yeast infection of the mouth, known as oral candidiasis. It usually leads to swelling and a thick white coating over your mouth, tongue, and throat.
5. Skin rashes or flaky skin that is hard to heal
HIV weakens the cells that normally fight off infection. Over time, especially if you don’t take HIV medications, your body may experience difficulty with infections that cause rashes.
6. Short-term memory loss
HIV may result in loss of memory, difficulty thinking, concentrating, speaking and lack of interest in activities.
Once you begin to notice these symptoms in your body ensure you go for proper medical attention.
