Thank you all for sharing my happiness! I think I have been just lucky. In fact I didnīt even get a resistance test prior to meds, so I was not very confident about achieving undetectability.
Mike (Bocker) I hope to hear from you good news very soon as well.
Hugs and kisses to you all!

WTG!!! Congratulations to you, that is cause for celebration!  :D

Curious about the variation by location of  what the definition of undetectable is. At the labs/clinic that I go to, the threshold is <75. What are the actual federal guidelines?

I am feeling as if I had been told I am "cured"! Believe me. I am not exagerating. Some of you already know this feeling as you have been undetectable for a long time.
I do not know what the "guidelines" are here in Spain. But the test they are using at my hospital considers undetectable under 40 copies.
The STD clinic where I was first diagnosed was using a viral load test with a detection threshold of 10 copies, but they do not offer treatment, only diagnosis and follow up until initiation of treatment. Maybe they use those tests because it is a research center: the one that concluded HAART reduces the transmision risk of natural concetion in serodiscordant couples.
