15 infections, EVEN: That might be what Snagglepuss would say....if you don't know Snagglepuss you ain't lived man....look him up on YOUTUBE....he will make you die laughing! Most antibiotic regimens are 1-7 days in duration meaning you can usually test negative within 3 days after finishing the drugs....1 week if it's a 1 day regimen. Bottom line...yeah..3-4 months you could clear a whole bunch...DON'T TRY! :)

I am assuming you were treated when tested positive. It is very risky to not be treated.
