When compared to those first used to treat HIV, today’s treatments have come a long way. There are a lot of treatment options out there, and some can be as simple as a daily pill, which can help get and keep your viral load undetectable. Undetectable means that there is so little virus in the blood that a lab test can't measure it. Some can even be started right away, including right after diagnosis.
You can start treatment as soon as your healthcare provider (HCP) recommends it. Some treatments can even be started the same day that you are diagnosed.
