It is possible that you have not been taken your HIV medicine every single day. That is the most common cause for the increase in HIV in your blood. If you have been taken the medicine every day for 1 year without missing a dose, it is likely that the virus has become resistant to your HIV medicine. See your HIV specialist to check for resistance. You may need new HIV medications
