    Good morning, any infection whatsoever increases the chances of undermining the body's immunity and hence may increase your chances for HIV and this is particularly so for STIs. The length of time it takes depends on your state of health apriori, the type of the infecting organism causing infection prior to HIV infection, abd some other factors so the length might vary depending on individual circumstances.
