Alamin kung saan puwedeng maaaring magpasuri o magpa-HIV testing malapit sa iyong lugar upang agad maiwasan o agad maagapan ito.

Ayon sa mga pinaka-bagong pagsisiyasat ng Department of Health o DOH, ang bilang ng mga may HIV sa Pilipinas ay mababa ngunit patuloy na tumataas.

Para sa unang dalawang buwan (January-February) ng taong 2019, 692 na kabataan ang naiulat na kaso ng HIV sa Pilipinas. Ang mga nasuri ay karamihan nasa edad 15 na taong gulang hanggang 24 na taong gulang.

Noong Pebrero lamang, 297 na bilang ng mga kabataan ang naiulat na may HIV.

Paano nga ba malalaman kung infected ka ng HIV?

Ang sintomas ng HIV ay maaaring maging iba sa bawat indibiduwal. Depende kasi ito sa stage na kinalalagyan ng pasyente.

May tatlong stages and HIV infection:

  1. Acute (early stage)
  2. Chronic
  3. AIDS

Hindi lahat ng sintomas ng HIV ay mararamdaman ng lahat ng may impeksiyon. Kapag hindi naagapan at nagamot kaagad, magiging masidhi ang paglala nito at tuluyang sisirain ang immune system.

Mga pangunahing sintomas ng HIV

Simula pa lang ng pagpasok ng virus na ito sa katawan at sistema, mararamdaman na ng pasyente ang lagnat at pananakit na parang maitutulad sa influenza. Karaniwang inaabot ng 2 hanggang 6 na linggo bago tuluyang makita ang sintomas ng impeksiyon. Pagkatapos nito, maaaring ni walang sintomas na makita pagkalipas pa ng ilang taon.

Sintomas ng acute HIV infection:

  • mataas na lagnat
  • chills o panginginig na parang giniginaw
  • rashes sa katawan
  • sore throat
  • pagpapawis sa gabi, habang tulog
  • pagkaramdam ng sobrang pagod (parang palagi na lang pagod)
  • pananakit ng mga kasu-kasuan
  • muscle pain
  • swollen glands
  • mouth ulcers

Hindi nangangahulugan na kapag may nakitang ilan sa mga sintomas na ito, ay kaagad nang may HIV, sinasabi ng Unicef na mas mainam na bigyan ng pansin ang mga sakit o kondisyon na ito, at ipatingin agad sa doktor.

Hindi rin sapat ang malaman ang mga sintomas, para lubusang matukoy kung may HIV nga ba ang isang tao. Ang tanging paraan para malaman ito ay ang magpa-test. Mahalagang matukoy ang aktuwal na kondisyon kung naghihinalang may HIV nga, upang maiwasan ang makahawa pa ng iba.

Tandaan na ang HIV ay nakukuha sa mga sumusunod:

  • dugo, sa pamamagitan ng transfusion o exposure
  • semilya, sa pakikipagtalik, kasama na ang pre-seminal fluid, vaginal fluids, at rectal fluids
  • breast milk

Kung nagkaro'n ng anumang panganib dahil sa mga ito, at nakakaramdam ng ilang sintomas, marapat na magpatingin kaagad sa doktor. May mga anti-HIV drugs para maprotektahan ang sarili kung hindi pa lumalagpas sa 72 oras ang exposure. Ikunsulta ito sa doktor.
