Asymptomatic HIV - symptoms and how to test
The second stage of HIV/AIDS involves infection without symptoms. At this time, HIV infection shows no visible symptoms. Patients often seek medical treatment due to symptoms; therefore, asymptomatic infections frequently go undetected. According to an estimate, around 10-60 % of individuals with early HIV infection will not experience symptoms. Patients who are asymptomatic but have HIV infection might benefit from therapies to lower their risk of clinical events and disease transmission if tested and found to have the virus.
