My question is if you have a viral load of undetctalble, is there a lower risk of infection to you partner.

For someone to truly answer yes to this question would not be right. But if you really think about it, if your viral load is 100,000 and you have an exposer to someone, thats alot of virus pumping in your blood to think of it as a minimal exposure, but if your viral load is <50 copies, even too hard to detect, it should be kind of reasuring to know that there really isn't that much of the virus that would "possibly" get into someone's system.

You can infect others even without a detectable viral load.
only 2% of your viral load is in your blood, it is higher elsewhere.

Read this: http://allserv.rug.ac.be/~avierstr/principles/pcr.html


And then ask yourself, "How could viral load measure anthing?" It is not a measuring tool. It is a identifying tool. PCR viral load is an oxymoron.

And if you moderators want to delete this maybe you might first want to try and answer it.
