HIV in Women

According to the recent diagnostic reports 62% were African American, 18% were White and 16% were Hispanic. The degree of infections varies with every individual the symptoms show up within 2-4 weeks differing from each individual. Commonly acute infections result with flu symptoms, but the uncertainty is it also takes up a year to show symptoms. Being a woman, the infection will also get transfer to the baby or it will lead to infertility. Prevention is mostly by antivirals during pregnancy or antiviral therapy after child birth.
