What if your viral load rebounds?

Get a second test.

  • A low-level rebound might only be a lab or test error.
  • It might just be a small blip that goes back down again.

This is why it is important to repeat the test.

Take second test straight away, when you get the first result.

Don’t just wait for weeks or months until your next routine test.

If the second test is still detectable this is a “confirmed viral rebound”.
