Ok I have been poz for 16 years and am doing great. I have been undetectable for a few years and was wondering what that actually means as far as invecting someone else...Is the risk still the same? keep up the great work!

Response from Dr. Young

If you have an undectable HIV viral load, the risk of you transmitting the virus to someone else is lower (but not zero) compared to someone with a higher (or "normal") viral load. BY
