Oral STDs: Pictures, types, symptoms, treatment, and prevention

A person will need to undergo a test to receive a diagnosis of HIV, as it does not always cause symptoms.

The symptoms that a person experiences depend on the stage of the HIV virus.

Early stage

People may experience symptoms similar to the flu , which can include:

fever aching muscles a sore throat chills fatigue swollen lymph glands night sweats

Clinical latency stage

People may experience mild symptoms or none at all during this stage.

Transmission

The risk of passing on HIV through oral sex is very low, and the person giving oral sex would need to have an open wound in their mouth in order to catch it.

With the correct treatment, a person with HIV cannot transmit the virus to another person.

Diagnosis and treatment

A healthcare provider can perform a blood or saliva test to determine whether a person has HIV.

Although there is currently no cure for HIV, it is possible to manage the condition effectively with the correct treatment. Treatment for HIV consists of a regimen of antiretroviral drugs called antiretroviral therapy.

Please don't panic! I've had herpes for seven years and now find it quite manageable even though my first outbreak was terribly painful. Each time I got an outbreak they had milder and milder symptoms and I tried a few treatments (prescription and non-prescription)
