How is it possible for me to get chlamydia and not my fiance? Can I go years without knowing I have it?? Does this diesease go dormant?
A few possibilities: Urine tests in men miss up to 10% of infections. Chlamydia can self cure in a few weeks in men; he may have had it, now cleared. Maybe he was treated but didn't admit it. "Years" is too long, but you may have had it from a past partner and your fiance just lucky he didn't catch it from you. The test isn't perfect, small chance your result is false. The main thing now is that both need treatment. ...Read more

Why was pap done?: Immune system clears HPV, typically in several months. HPV DNA may persist and infection may reactivate years later, but usually doesn't. Why did you have a pap anyway?

Avoid blood contact: You are unlikely at risk for HIV from your brother. Hiv is spread through unprotected sexual contact or sharing infected needles. I'm assuming you're doing neither with your brother, so your risk is minimal. I would avoid blood contact if you have an open sore or cut, but intact skin will protect you from hiv. Would not share razors or toothbrushes, but okay to share eating utensils, toilet, etc. ...Read more
