In men, initial HIV symptoms are typically unspecific. Early symptoms are usually bearable and frequently mistaken for flu or another mild condition. People may easily underestimate them or mistake them for minor health conditions.
Men can experience flu-like symptoms some days to weeks after contracting the virus, which may include:
2. kin rash
4. A sore throat
Besides flu-like symptoms, some men may also experience more severe symptoms early on, such as
7. Weight loss
Less common early HIV symptoms include:
9.ulcers in the mouth
10. ulcers on the genitals
11. night sweating
12. nausea or vomiting
13. sore muscles
14. pain in the joints
15. swollen lymph nodes
Men may undervalue initial symptoms and put off seeing a doctor until the symptoms worsen, by which time the infection might have advanced.
The fact that some men do not seek timely treatment may be why the virus affects men more severely than women.
