I had a baseline VL in the 90,000s. After 17 weeks of treatment, I'm at 185. Is this concerning that I'm not UD yet?

You don't indicate what your baseline and current CD4 count/percent is. Some times it does take up to 6 months to get to undetectable, and that depends on what your starting CD4 count (baseline immune function/status) is, HIV treatment regimen, adherence levels to the regimen, and whether your virus had any evidence of HIV drug resistance among other factors.
