Undetectable viral load in blood = undetectable viral load in semen?
Oct 21, 2002

My viral load has been undetectable for 6 months. I don't have the desire to play russian roulette with HIV- guys, but am wondering if my serum undetectable status also results in less virus in my semen. I use condoms, but it would be nice to know if my undetectable status also helps lower the risk.

Your thoughts?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It probably does, but it's better to play safe.
