Can You Test Negative For Herpes And Still Have It
No test is perfect: Of course, a "false negative" result occurs with all testing. There are many ways to test for h.Pylori so if you have risk factors, exposures, or high suspicion of infection get a confirmatory study. However, empiric antibiotic treatment based solely on your concern is probably not yet reasonable. ...Read more

Testing for HPV: Yes, a normal pap does not mean that you do not have hpv. Ideally all pap smears would test the cervical sample for all abnormalities including infections and viruses. Most pap smear analysis is screened only for "high grade" hpv types. A negative pap might have a low-risk hpv infection or the sample might have not been sufficient.

What should you do if you think you have symptoms of hsv2 but have had two negative blood tests and two negative culture tests?
What symptoms?: If two blood tests and cultures were negative, it is unlikely that you have hsv 2. What symptoms make you think you have the infection? All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. ...Read more

I know staphylococcus is not a std, but can you get it through sex if i tested negative for it at obgyn test, and have already been sexually active.
If you can still be pregnant and have a period, when is the best time to take a pregnancy test? i have two hpt, and im hoping for negative results.
No, not at that time: A woman cannot get her normal regular period and be pregnant at the same time. However, she can get pregnant a week or two after her normal period. If she has some spotting or light bleeding that doesn't look like her normal regular period, she can check a urine pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) to see if she is pregnant. ...Read more
My partner tested positive for chlamydia and me negative. 4 years together is it possible they can go back and check if this was a false positive?
What type of test?: Did he get treated? It is likely that he had infection and was treated effectively and is no longer carrying the organism. He may still have antibody to chlamydia but not the organism. It would not do any harm to get retested by the Chlamydia nucleic acid. See this site for info. http://www.medicalhealthtests.com/pathology-test/chlamydia-tests-serum.html ...Read more
Is it possible to have a false positive HSV-1 Swab from the genital area? Partner tested negative for blood and so did I.
Very unlikely: A positive HSV1 test result from a swab specimen usually is conclusive; false positives are extremely rare. On the other hand, blood tests for HSV1 often are false negative. So most likely the person with the positive test has genital herpes due to HSV1, especially if the swab was from a typical herpes lesion (vesicle, ulcer, etc). But if uncertain, keep working with your doctor. ...Read more
Can a blood test show that you are pregnant at 4wks and can a blood test be negative at 3mths. Any yet i still see my monthly period. Can i be preggo?
Can you tell me if i get a blood test for mono, will that same blood test also reveal if I have hiv?
Anything's possible: The number one cause of a missed period in a woman who normally has monthly periods is pregnancy, so it it smart to have done home pregnancy tests. Home pregnancy tests are sometimes falsely negative, if it is too early in the pregnancy for enough hormone to be passed into the urine. I recommend seeing your family physician, who can perform a blood test for pregnancy ; help evaluate why the change. ...Read more
