Viral Load - Quantitative vs Qualitative 6 years 9 months ago #14017

If you have a negative Qualitative test is there any reason to do the Quantitative test also ? Wondering since I read the qualitative was the more sensitive of the two. Planning to get it anyway since hearing negative 2x won't make a positive.

If its not there, it can't be measured.
That, pretty much, is that.
But, I subscribe to the philosophy of "if it makes you feel good, damn well better do it!"
That practice has put me in some really good and some very questionable situations....

I do the 4 week as a quantitative so if it is still there we see a nice small number.

As soon as it is <15 there is no point doing more that qualitative.
YMMV
