Signs and symptoms of HIV in men can range from flu-like symptoms, to dementia, weight loss and fatigue.

It may take a number of weeks, months or years, but the HIV infection will eventually break down your immune system. This weakened immune system leaves the body susceptible to attack by so called 'opportunistic infections.' These are conditions that your body would normally be able to fight off, but which can prove fatal in HIV-positive individuals.
