Gonorrhea: Posiitve gonorrhea tests are very accurate, so for sure you were infected. But the tests miss some cases; must asssume your partner has it, even with negative tests. In 99% of situaitons like yours, one partner or the other has had other partners recently. (Sorry that's not what you hoped to hear.)

November 5 I had unprotectedsex. OnNovember 8th I went to doctor to get an std test and the results came back negative I wanted to know when to retest?

Depends: Different infections have different incubation periods. If you were infected with any, most would give a positive result by 6 weeks after exposure. To be sure about HIV, you should get a HIV nucleic acid test at 6 months after exposure. Do not delay other tests to 6 months.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Is it possible to get an std if the other person is not infected? For example, is it possible for me to get chlamydia if my partner doesn’t have it?

I hugged a prostitute and her sweat touched y neck. I don't have any open sores, or injury or any blood contqct with her. Can I get std? I took a shower within half an hour and cleaned the area with water and soap

Not at all likely: If that was truly your only contact and no other and the other individual indeed had no transmissible STD's then (not all sex workers are infected) it is not likely that you would contract an STD that way. Why don't you seek a safer form for your sexual outlet-I.e. Seek a true life partner, not just a sexual outlet, not easy but much more satisfying and worthwhile. Good luck. ...Read more
