Sex Fact: HIV and AIDS

Kayla Kayla
What is the difference between HIV and AIDS? Some people do not know the difference, and this post will help you learn!

HIV is the virus that causes the disease AIDS. HIV causes AIDS, but a person can have HIV for many years before it actually will develop into AIDS. When HIV enters the body, it infects specific cells in the immune system called CD4 cells. These cells help your body fight infection and disease. HIV infects these cells and reduces their number.

A CD4 cell count in someone with a healthy immune system is around 500 to 1,800 per cubic millimeter of blood. AIDS is diagnosed when your CD4 cell count is below 200.

These facts were taken from the CDC website.
