What Is HIV Positive- Undetectable? #DirtyArmy Commenter Assists!
THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, saw this in the comments and thought it was a good educational piece for #TheDirtyArmy. FYI: “HIV positive but undetectable means that one has HIV but the most recent viral load in the bloodstream is so low that it cannot be detected by standard lab draws. This is the best outcome for an HIV positive person. The virus itself will never leave your body, but if it exists in extremely low levels, whether naturally or with medical therapy, there is a significantly low chance of transferring the virus through sexual contact or developing AIDs. One has to re-check the viral loads throughout the remainder of natural life, and if they begin to rise, initiating/changing HAART therapy can help them return to low levels. Hope this helped!”
SO… you are saying it’s ok to have sex with randoms who have undetectable HIV.- nik
