Contagious??

Are my blood contagious during tx after und?? Haven't had a pcr since week 4 since the doctor said there was no way the virus could come back during tx and that I also wouldn't be contagios. Just have to be absolutely sure...

Interesting question.  I would always be on the safe side and figure yes I am contagious.  How long have you been on treatment?  And the virus can come back - viral breakthrough.  Not trying to scare you, but if you have not had a pcr since week 4, you need to get one.

I am at week 45. My doctor has a vacation so I can't get a pcr until I my appointment after I am done tx. Noticed blood on my hand yesterday and I don't know were it came from. Couldn't find that I was bleeding, but I am still worried. Had been with a boy and the protection broke.
