virus in semen

Oct 9, 2009

if a person has a undetectable viral load is the virus still in the semen?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Usually there is correlation between the viral load in the blood and the viral load in semen, but not always! It is possible to have an undetectable HIV plasma viral load while having an elevated viral load in semen.
