AIDS - Stages

The disease from the point of infection till the development of AIDS has a lot of intermediate stages. The stages are as follows:

First stage or Window Period

The first stage is called the window period which extends from six weeks to six months. It is the time interval existing between the time of infection when the virus enters one's body to the time when the patient develops enough antibodies to be measured on an HIV test.

Second stage or asymptomatic stage

The second stage is called the asymptomatic stage where the patient shows no sign of infection. This is because the immune system is strong in combating the virus.

Third stage or symptomatic stage

The third stage is called the symptomatic stage where he virus (HIV) becomes very active which in turn weakens the patient's immune system. In this stage symptoms of HIV infection may begin to appear.

your services are excellent we as students we are proud of them thank you

I want to thank Dr.50-50 for helping me get cured of my hiv/aids diseases, for years Now I have been suffering from hiv/aids , but one day as I was surfing through the Internet I met a post about a lady who was cured by Dr.50-50 so I decided to give it a try to see if he could save my life. Luckily for me he sent the herbal medications to me. After using it for a while, the symptoms disappeared and I was cured.
