Do you feel anxious and afraid of being at risk of HIV/AIDS infection? Or even worried you may have been infected with HIV that could possibly develop into full blown AIDS soon? Use our HIV Risk Calculator with questions that probe into the risk factors and determine if any of them applies to you. If you believe you are at risk of being exposed to possible HIV infection, it is of utmost importance that you get tested for HIV at the earliest.

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that primarily transmits through unprotected sexual intercourse. It destroys the body's immunity and causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome). AIDS was first reported in the United States in 1981 and has since become a major worldwide epidemic.

AIDS Facts

  • Though Human Immunodeficiency Virus is known to be transmitted only when the blood or blood products of an infected person come into contact with the blood of a healthy person, it is also found in the Saliva of the infected person in small amounts.
  • The Virus can be transmitted from an infected mother to a child during pregnancy or delivery and while breast-feeding.
  • The HIV test of an infected person can show false negative results until the person develops anti-bodies against the virus. So we advise you to take HIV test every 3 to 6 months if you think you may be infected.
  • The HIV infected person may develop severe flu like symptoms, diarrhea, night sweats within 2-3 weeks of exposure and these may disappear in weeks. Or the person may not experience any symptoms at all.
  • It is not the Virus that kills the infected person but opportunistic infections that the infected person acquires due to immune deficiency caused by HIV.
