Chlamydia trachomatis igg and igm both negative. Should I do any other test or I'm safe !?? Thank you

Depends: How long after the potential exposure were the tests done? If you tested too soon, it may not be meaningful. if you wish to get a definitive diagnosis, you should get a nucleic acid test for chlamydia. Get tested for gonorrhea at the same time. For 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. 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. ...Read more

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 more
