Question

When will a viral load rise?

Do HIV viral loads only ever rise when not on medications?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

There are several reasons why a persons viral load may rise.

  1. They aren’t on treatment;
  2. They don’t adhere to their medication;
  3. The treatment that they are taking is no longer working like it should do, so treatment failure. If this is the case then the ARV combination will need to be changed. Please see here: http://i-base.info/guides/changing
