Response from Dr. Young

Hello Poonkuzhali,

Unfortunately, HIV is not curable. It would seem that you're among the very fortunate minority of persons living with HIV who have survived for a long time without the need for medications. Despite this, you should certainly be sure to get routine health and laboratory monitoring.

Unfortunately, HIV is not curable. On the other hand, there's no particular reason why you shouldn't be able to marry (and even have children).

I hope this is helpful. Be well, BY

Prescription Refill (Atripla)
