If a person is infected with HIV from blood transfusion, after how many days the symptoms start to show?

3 Doctors Answered
varies individually but average after 5 to 6 yrs in male and 2 to 3 years in female.
20-22 days.
Symptoms may show after 5-7 years. But test will be positive. One should not wait for symptoms. If Blood transfusion is given to you, take consultation and discuss with me in detail.
