Early signs and symptoms of HIV every woman must know

- Early symptoms of HIV infection may be mild and easily dismissed

- But even without noticeable symptoms, an infected person can still pass the virus to others

The spread of HIV is fast gaining grounds in Ghana, despite all the efforts being made to curb the situation.

The Ministry of Health, the Ghana AIDS Commission and other NGOs have been doing their best to educate citizens on how to prevent getting HIV, as well as offer treatment advice for those who already have it.

The disease was once known as one of the deadliest in the world, however, that is no longer that case due to several medications that are available to help prolong the lives of patients.

Currently, HIV has no cure, however, patients who have access to quality treatment and properly take their drugs are guaranteed living a bit longer than those who don’t seek medication.

When the HIV spreads and eats up into the whole body, the virus progresses to become AIDS. This is when the real symptoms show and the body is at its weakest point.

HIV/AIDS can affect anybody, whether man or woman. Therefore, there is the need to know the early symptoms so as to seek early treatment when you contract the virus.
