    Clinical Latency Stage After the early stage of HIV infection, the disease moves into a stage called the clinical latency stage (also called “chronic HIV infection”). During this stage, HIV is still active but reproduces at very low levels. People with chronic HIV infection may not have any HIV-related symptoms, or only mild ones. For people who aren’t taking medicine to treat HIV (called antiretroviral therapy or ART), this period can last a decade or longer, but some may progress through this phase faster. People who are taking medicine to treat HIV the right way, every day may be in this stage for several decades because treatment helps keep the virus in check. (Read more about HIV treatment.) It’s important to remember that people can still transmit HIV to others during this phase even if they have no symptoms, although people who are on ART and stay virally suppressed (having a very low level of virus in their blood) are much less likely to transmit HIV than those who are not virally suppressed. Progression to AIDS If you have HIV and you are not on ART, eventually the virus will weaken your body’s immune system and you will progress to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), the late stage of HIV infection. Symptoms can include: •Rapid weight loss •Recurring fever or profuse night sweats •Extreme and unexplained tiredness •Prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck •Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week •Sores of the mouth, anus, or genitals •Pneumonia •Red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids •Memory loss, depression, and other neurologic disorders. Each of these symptoms can also be related to other illnesses. So the only way to know for sure if you have HIV is to get tested. Many of the severe symptoms and illnesses of HIV disease come from the opportunistic infections that occur because your body’s immune system has been damaged.
