Does an STD test or pap smear test for HIV/aids?

OTOH, everyone tested for STDs should also be tested for HIV, but different doctors and clinics have different policies, however. Call the office and ask directly. ...Read more

Why do males test negative for Trichomoniasis but the partner test positive ?

Why do males test negative for Trichomoniasis but the partner test positive ?

Sampling of trich: Well trich can be 'tricky' if I can make such a pun. The issue could be with the quality of the testing... so if your male partner is testing negative, it might be that either a) he didn't have it or b) the sample collected was not sufficient. It could also be that in your case c) perhaps it wasn't trich. I've seen that on rare occasions. Best thing to do is talk to your doc- maybe a couples visit ...Read more

4 doctors agreed:
What STDs do doctors test for through urinalysis??

None: A urinalysis on its own does not test for STDs. Special cultures need to be ordered. In the case of urine assays, gonorrhea and chlamydia screening and T mycoplasma/ureaplasma testing can be done. Other STDs require blood tests. If you are concerned about possible exposure, take to your doctor right away about appropriate testing. ...Read more

Hiv rna test result undetected after unprotected blowjob at day17. Test range 40 to 10mil. Is it conclusive?regular hiv test neg at 15 days. Hiv?

No risk: HIV is rarely transmitted by oral sex. If you were the receiver of the BJ, you can be sure you weren't infected: there are few if any proved cases of oral to genital HIV transmission. Most experts would have recommended against an RNA test in this situation, but the negative result is additional strong evidence you weren't infected. The "regular" test is only slightly reassuring, 4-6 wk minimum. ...Read more
