seroconversion – the immune reaction when you develop antibodies to a new infection. HIV seroconversion usually starts a couple of week after infection. Because this is when viral load is very high (often millions of copies/mL), this is when symptoms occur.
About 70% people have HIV seroconversion symptoms. Some people become very ill and need immediate ART, and other have no symptoms.
