My boyfriend recently had a blood and urine test to check his health. Can this test validate if he has an STD or sti? Everything came out negative.

My boyfriend recently had a blood and urine test to check his health. Can this test validate if he has an STD or sti? Everything came out negative.

Depends: It depends on what test (s) were ordered--will not find what is not looked for. Stds are tested for with either blood or urine specimen (depending on which std), so is possible. Need to ask him if he knows which tests were done, or he will need to contact his provider for clarification. ...Read more

Can you get tested for all std's and sti's by blood work and urine test?

Can you get tested for all std's and sti's by blood work and urine test?

Not quite: Urine testing (or vaginal swab) checks for gonorrhea and chlamydia, and blood tests are for syphilis, HIV, and sometimes herpes (HSV) and hepatitis B (depending on risks, symptoms, etc). Testing for HPV (with pap smear), trichomonas, and other vaginal infections requires pelvic exam. By the way, STD and STI are the same thing; there is no difference in meaning between the two abbreviations. ...Read more

Does a blood and urine test at the doctors also work as a test to see if you have an STD or sti?

Does a blood and urine test at the doctors also work as a test to see if you have an STD or sti?

STD Testing: I do not understand your question. To test someone for an std that test has to be discussed and approved by the patient. You did not mention in your question what the doctor was seeing you for or what tests are ordered. A patient visit has to have a theme or purpose and a reason for the test. There are thousands of tests that can be run. They are all very expensive. ...Read more

If I had an STD would it show that I had an infection in a routine urine test?

Usually no: If you have a gonococcal urethritis (gonorrhea) or chlamydial or other urethritis, there will be at least a few extra white cells in your urine and the physician will want to know why. Herpes, shyphilis, chancroid, and hpv won't show. If you're just getting screened for recreational drugs, no one will look even for white cells. ...Read more

I have had this vaginal burning for months now. I got a urine test, STD test and a culture test everything negative what could this be?

IC: Interstitial cystitis can cause these symptoms. It can be difficult to treat, also called painful bladder syndrome — it is a chronic condition in which you experience bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pelvic pain, ranging from mild discomfort to severe pain. See your doctor, part of treatment is avoidance of certain acidic foods in your diet. ...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

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

Itch w/urine test negative for stds on many test, doc says possible allergy as it occurs only after drinking diet soda, is this possible?

Yeast?: STDs rarely cause urethral itching in men, no surprise standard STD tests are negative. If urethral discharge, consider nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), an STD usually caused by bacteria not detected with routine STD tests. If your diabetes is poorly controlled, maybe yeast (candida). Hard to imagine an allergic cause, or that it really is connected with diet soda. Keep working w/ your doctor. ...Read more

Had a recent std naat urine test and missed the first void, would chlymidia and gonnarhea show up with mid stream sample or do I need to retest?

Took one day pill for yeast but now white discharge/odor is back an when I ran a urine test it came back with NIT and LEU positive. Could I have a STD?

BV? STD?: Contrary to what some people say, vaginal yeast infections usually do not cause discharge with odor. The main yeast symptom is itching/irritation. Bacterial vaginosis, an overgrown of vaginal bacteria, is a common cause of discharge with odor, but STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichoonas) also can do it and could cause positive urine nitrite and LEU. See a doctor ASAP for testing. Good luck! ...Read more

Can lgv be detected by chamydia cerival smear and by urine test? Is a serum lgv L2 IgG IgA IgM accurate at 8 weeks? All stds were neg still symptoms

Can lgv be detected by chamydia cerival smear and by urine test? Is a serum lgv L2 IgG IgA IgM accurate at 8 weeks? All stds were neg still symptoms

Extremely rare STD: LGV (lymphogranuloma venereum) is very rare, and in recent years in the US almost entirely in gay men. Few or no cases have been reported in women the last 10-20 years. The types of chlamydia that cause it would probably be detected by standard testing, but special testing would have to be done to know it was an LGV strain. However, a negative LGV blood test proves you don't have it. ...Read more

I tested negative with wet mount and urine test for stds but I have itching on the skin outside of the vagina. Is there a topical ointment yousuggest?

I tested negative with wet mount and urine test for stds but I have itching on the skin outside of the vagina. Is there a topical ointment yousuggest?

Vaginal "azole": Vaginal area itching suggests a possible yeast infection, which can easily be missed on standard wet mount and STD testing. If you have vaginal yeast, just treating the irritated outside tissues won't help much. Try one of the OTC yeast vaginal creams like miconazole (Monistat®) or any other product with active ingredient ending in "azole". Recheck with your doc if that doesn't clear it up. ...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.

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
