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

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

Can RPR test for syphilis give false negative?If syphilis is highly suspected should I retest for it ?

Can RPR test for syphilis give false negative?If syphilis is highly suspected  should I retest for it ?

Prozone effect: False (-) in RPR syphilis testing occurs when there is a prozone effect. Why? It's because the concentration of syphilis antibodies is so high, it interferes with the antigen-antibody interactions that result in a (+) reaction. A false (-) result can also occur during primary syphilis since not enough time has passed to allow high enough antibody levels for a (+) reaction to occur. ...Read more
