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

Girlfriend tested positive for gonorrhoea & chlamydia but I tested positive for only gonorrhoea how is that possible? She cheated with one guy

Girlfriend tested positive for gonorrhoea & chlamydia but I tested positive for only gonorrhoea how is that possible? She cheated with one guy

It happens: People don't end up catching all the diseases they are exposed to. For example, if 10 people play with a child with chicken pox, maybe only 8 of the 10 people will come down with chicken pox. That's how life works. However, tests don't always detect a disease that is present, which means if there is suspicion of an STD, we can treat it. Consider getting treated for BOTH gonorrhea and chlamydia. ...Read more

PapIGrfxHPV ASCU results negative for my pap HPV say (NEGHPV) HPV DNA reflex criteria were not met with this specimen result NO HPV test perform mean?

Normal, no HPV: If I correctly understand the abbreviations, your doctor ordered a pap smear for which HPV testing was to be done if the smear was abnormal. Your pap did not show those abnormalities; therefore HPV testing wasn't done. In other words, it's all good news: your results were fine with nothing to worry about. If you remain uncertain for some reason, contact your doctor's office. ...Read more

Tested positive for hpv rna rather than DNA. Normal cytology. Dr. says we'll repeat in one year. Is hpv rna more serious? Ask for colposcopy?

Im 52, married over 26 years and recently diagnosed with positive HPV , negative pap. I've never had a positive pap. Does HPV lie dormant?

It can: Unfortunately, if you have never been tested for hpv before, the hpv could have been acquired any time from the first moment you became sexually active until recently. Not all people with hpv will develop cervical cellular abnormalities so your history of normal pap smears does not solve the dilemma.For more information www.Askyourgynecologist.Org. ...Read more
