Thank you Dr. For answering my question about how quickly you can become untectable. Assuming that since antiretrovirals can show undetectable levels in as little as a week, am I correct in thinking
That if you took yourself off the meds that you could possibly become detectable in a week's time as well?
Again, possibly. The answer depends on many factors including how long a person was undetectable, how good their immune system has recovered and could control the virus while off HIV treatment. Although the virus could become detectable after a week off treatment, it could also take months depending on those various factors.
