This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...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

13Days after sex if i test for a 10 panel STD test of chlamydia gonorea syphilis etc will test results be acurate ?

No.: How will you be testing for these agents? Some require culture, some depend on antibody production, some use DNA technology. Tests dependent on antibody production are not likely to turn positive in two weeks. It would be preferable to see your doctor for the correct choice of tests. ...Read more

Do they test for genital herpes in prenatal STD tests?

Do they test for genital herpes in prenatal STD tests?

No: No, unless you have a history of herpes or lesions that look suspicious. Sometimes a pap smear can see cells that look suspicious for herpes which may then prompt a recommendation to actually do a specific test for herpes during a subsequent office visit. ...Read more

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?

Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more

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

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

Not necessarily: A specific HIV test has to be ordered by the doctor. Usually the doctor will inform the patient (or ask permission) before doing an HIV test, so if there was no discussion about it, most likely the test wasn't done. 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

Do pap tests check for stds?

Do pap tests check for stds?

Indirectly for some: Pap smears test for abnormal cervical cells— dysplasia or metaplasia—which lead to biopsies. Any std that causes such changes in the cervical cells, such as hpv, will thus be indirectly tested for. Generally, there are other tests for most stds: culture, wet prep, smear of discharge, blood tests. ...Read more

If my uti urine test came out negative. Is it possible to test positive for a uti culture test? Also can doctors see stds or stis in this culture test

If my uti urine test came out negative. Is it possible to test positive for a uti culture test? Also can doctors see stds or stis in this culture test

Here are some...: Urinalysis (under microscope) of properly collected fresh urine should give an fair accurate indication for bacterial UTI or not, but ultimate confirmation is urine culture with properly collected urine. And either one should correlate with clinical picture and suspicion. But, testing for STD/STI like chlamydia & gono should be done with the first (dirty) part of urine, differing from testing UTI. ...Read more

Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.

Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.

Normal bacteria: It's normal to have U. urealyticum in the genital tract. Once in a while it causes nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men, but generally harmless both in men and their sex partners. UU doesn't show up on routine tests; testing is rarely needed except in special circumstances. So nothing to worry about, especially if no symptoms. If in doubt, see an STD or infectious diseases expert. Good luck! ...Read more
