Is there any possible way one sex partners Std test results come back positive and the other partner test negative? Could it be a false test?

Is there any possible way one sex partners Std test results come back positive and the other partner test negative? Could it be a false test?

Lots of reasons: Depending on the specific STD, the first person tested might have a false positive, or the second a false negative result. Maybe partner not infected yet, if other partners involved. Most STDs are cured over time by the immune system, so the partner might have self cured. Or took an antibiotic, either for the STD or something else. Both partners should be treated, including the one with neg test. ...Read more

Could taking antibiotics a week or two before affect STD test results?

Could taking antibiotics a week or two before affect STD test results?

Yes for some STDs: Some antibiotics are active against chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis and could cure the infection, making the test negative. Even worse, it might suppress the infection so the test is negative, but not cure it. However, antibiotics have no effect on viral STDs like herpes, HPV, and viral hepatitis. On the other hand, if you are at risk, don't delay testing because of this. ...Read more

Waiting on HIV/STD test results. Missed the call from dr, they only tried contacting me once. I'm so scared. Bad sign? Why wouldn't they make sure to get hold of me and call my other contact number

Waiting on HIV/STD test results. Missed the call from dr, they only tried contacting me once. I'm so scared. Bad sign? Why wouldn't they make sure to get hold of me and call my other contact number

I had STD testing last week, haven't had any sexual contact in 2 years. My test results are. HSV1 ab <.090 and HSV 2 AB <0.90. Am I clear?

I had STD testing last week, haven't had any sexual contact in 2 years. My test results are. HSV1 ab <.090 and HSV 2 AB <0.90. Am I clear?

Negative: Those results are negative, indicating you are not infected with HSV1 or HSV2. However, up to 30% of people with HSV1 do not test positive, so you could still have it. However, although HSV1 can be sexually transmitted, the large maority of infections are oral and not acquired by sex, so it isn't generally considered an STD. ...Read more

I drank a lot of water before taking a urine based STD test. Will my excessive water intake dilute the potential bacteria/result and cause false neg?

I drank a lot of water before taking a urine based STD test. Will my excessive water intake dilute the potential bacteria/result and cause false neg?

No problem: This will make no difference at all. The urine STD tests detect infection because they rinse the urethra (urine passage). No matter now dilute the urine, it will flush any gonorrhea or chlamydia bacteria into the specimen and testing will be accurate. ...Read more

I had an std test done for trichomonasis. The results were negative but 24-48hrs prior I had to take amoxicillin for a tooth abcess. Would the antibiotic have masked the presence of the protozoa trichomonasis? Doctor on health tap said it wouldn't. T/F?
