Initial Viral Load??

Initial Viral Load??

Im newly diagnosed with HIV and am new to this site. I am curious, what was your intiail viral load when you first found out you were HIV+ (before starting treatment)? My results came in today and my viral load is 81,000.

Mine was over 100k but I have been undetectable for years now because of meds. Just take meds everyday and try to take them around the same time each day. You should try and shoot for 20 or less. It will happen. Stay strong

It is now common practice in most places to put you on meds if you're tested positive, no matter what your cd4 is. Used to be they waited until you hit 200 or less until you got meds

that is really high viral load you want the lowest number possible and your cd4 count should be a high number when I was diagnosed my count was a little higher then yours. your medicine should decrease that number. remember to take your medicine every day. good luck.

Thanks for your feedback. Well my first appointment with my hiv specialist is coming up in two weeks. So far I just did bloodwork, my doctor should talk me through the results and start me on treatment during the appointment I assume.
