faint HIV test

Jan 19, 2014

In 2012 I was pregnant and found out I was HIV positive and was on a treatment for herpers and genetal watts at the same time and I tested positive on both rapid and confimentary now I went to the doctor this year (2014) and I got a very faint line on a rapid HIV test and my CD4 count has dropped from 507 to 477. What causes the faint line?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

What was the purpose of having a rapid test done? What is your current HIV viral load level and are your receiving HIV treatment?
