My viral load is nondetectable without treatment

Oct 11, 2003

I am 23 years old, I was diagnosticated as HIV positive 3 weeks ago, I think that I was infected 7 months ago, but my viral load is nondetectable on the standard test (<400 copies is nondetectable), I have never been on treatment and my CD4 counts are 560, I think this was a miracle, because what i have read about it this is really unusual, they are going to do a more sensitive test this week. I want to know a proffesional opinion, and if there are more cases like mine

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, there have been other cases like yours. Given your CD4 count, this reflects a very good immune response toward the virus.
