If negative tests for bv, chlamydia, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, herpes, syphilis, gonorrea, trichomonas, hiv, what can be causes of cervicitis/urethritis?
Chlamydia is a curable sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis. This bacteria infects mucous membranes of the urethra, vagina, cervix, anus, rectum, eyelid, and throat. Chlamydia may be asymptomatic but some patients experience pain or burning during urination, nausea, fever, vaginal discharge, ...Read more

in this case, is HIV infection accurate?
Can a pap smear detect the most common std's like chlamydia, genital herpes, HIV infection, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis and hepatitis b?
My friend test std, results . chlamydia trachomatis positive, abnormal andnon reactive negative. Hsv 2 igG. 2.69. HSV 1 igG. 37.90. the me?
What's the question?: You don't ask a question -- I'm not sure what information you're looking for. These HSV test results are positive for both HSV1 and HSV2. However, when the HSV1 IgG antibody test is very strongly positive and the HSV2 result is much lower, as in your friend, the HSV2 result sometimes is false. Additional testing, preferably with a Western blot test, can sort it out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?
Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more
HBV test results: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Need any medication or vaccine?
Excellent question: and your story stumps many a doctor, often! :) a lot of the recommendations depend on - are you someone with risk factors for HBV? is this the first time that it has been checked? are your liver enzymes normal? are you about to undergo any procedures/ treatments that could put you at risk for HBV? If you have no sig risk factors, yes, I'd vaccinate you if there's potential for exposure. ...Read more

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Do I have HBV?
Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more
Possible: The elisa test can be affected by different infections, causing a false-positive result. After any positive elisa, a follow-up test is performed by a 'western blot' which takes longer to perform, but gives a more sensitive answer. If you or someone you know had a positive HIV by elisa, they absolutely need the follow-up testing (including a full std/sti work up). ...Read more

Candida antibody IgM high 1.2. Candida antibody IgG high 1.9. Candida antibody IgA high 1.5. What does this mean? Yeast overgrowth?
No.: Chlamydia pneumoniae causes respiratory infection and is transmitted through the air. It is not sexually transmitted. Pap smear is not designed to detect chlamydia infection of any kind. Diagnosis of chladmyida trachomatis is by culture or dna testing. See this site for more information. http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporter/index.html?id=779. ...Read more
Depends.: In an normal urinalysis they do not test for stds. But you can use the same urine sample to test for chlamydia or gonorrhea. When they take blood for the syphilis test, the can also test for HIV and hep c, but not for chlamydia or gonorrhea. In summary, to have a "full std panel", you need to give both blood and urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends: In a situation like this you have one positive test and one negative test. The lab should run a tie-breaker test (HIV RNA) to give you a real answer.
