Common diagnosis: If you have mouth sores get them evaluated and if they are painful they should be treated. Have a competent dentist or physician check you out. I would not depend on a lab technician's opinion--though it might be correct! ...Read more

Return to doctor: Return to your doctor. Yellow/green vaginal discharge suggests infection. If STD testing was done a while ago and you have been sexually active since then, get retested. If not yet done, get checked for vaginal infections, including trichomonas; request the newer DNA trich test, much more accurate than the usual microscopy of discharge. Probably nothing to do with pregnancy & delivery a year ago. ...Read more

My friend test std, results. Chlamydia trachomatis positive, abnormal andnon reactive negative. Hsv 2 igG. 2.69. HSV 1 igG. 37.90. the me?

What's the question?: You don't ask a question -- I'm not sure what information you're looking for. These HSV test results are positive for both HSV1 and HSV2. However, when the HSV1 IgG antibody test is very strongly positive and the HSV2 result is much lower, as in your friend, the HSV2 result sometimes is false. Additional testing, preferably with a Western blot test, can sort it out. ...Read more
