A 46-year-old member asked:
Disclaimer

if my urine dipstick analysis was negative, is my chance of having an std low?

No the same: A negative urine dipstick makes a urinary tract infection less likely but has nothing to do with checking for std's. There are other tests and cultures that may need to be performed. See your doc to check it out.
