Stage 1: No Symptoms - In the first stages of HIV, the symptoms don't show up People can live with AIDS for years without knowing it Blood tests will show antibodies after they form to fight the AIDS virus, but it takes the antibodies three months to appear.

It means that if you take a blood test right after you have sex, the virus won't show up for another three months.

Stage 2: Mild Illness - At this stage, the virus grows within the white blood cells and destroys them.

When most of the cells are destroyed, the immune system is destroyed and the body weakens.

Some symptoms they might have include:

  1. Feeling tired
