Got a vaginal swab done for chlamydia retest. Chlamydia came back negative. But positive for proteus mirabilis. Could that possibly hidden chlamydia?
Chlamydia: There are several means of testing for chlamydia and without knowing what method your doctor used cannot be definitive, but if they used culture (uncommon) proteus mirabilis could interfere. Nucleic acid amplification or hybridazation tests, elisa assays or direct fluorescent antibody testing tests are more common and would not be affected by proteus. ...Read more
Possible: The elisa test can be affected by different infections, causing a false-positive result. After any positive elisa, a follow-up test is performed by a 'western blot' which takes longer to perform, but gives a more sensitive answer. If you or someone you know had a positive HIV by elisa, they absolutely need the follow-up testing (including a full std/sti work up). ...Read more

Lab Error: I would chalk this up to lab error, but in my patients we do not leave it there. There is a much better and more valid test to be done called a western blot test for herpes. This definitive test should have already been offered to you so that you can know for a fact whether you have herpes or not. ...Read more

Maybe not infection: Since the question states that tests for infection have negative results, the cause of symptoms may be non-infectious. Such causes may include problems with the bladder muscles, the bladder or urethra lining, the rectum, the nerves that go to the bladder, etc... One's primary care doctor can do some more evaluation, and may refer to a urologist if needed. ...Read more
NGU is STD, UTI isn't: Urinary tract infection (UTI) and nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) are separate problems. But some doctors don't know the difference and diagnose UTI in men with NGU. UTIs are rare in men under age 35. Most NGU has negative STD tests, but it's still an STD. You're female, per your profile. Are you concerned for yourself or a male partner? I can help better with more info. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
