Jan 18, 2008

I was recently diagnose with HIV but there is no virus in my bloodstream after completing two viral load test. i was diagnose in june of 2007, please help me understand why there no virus in my blood but i test positive.

Assuming that your screening antibody and confirmatory western blot test are both positive, then you are HIV infected with an undetectable viral load, which means your immune system is doing a good job in controlling the infection on its own with the need for medications.
