I was tested via blood test for STDs and was told I tested positive for herpes exposure and that I have the antibodies in my blood but that I don t have herpes I am so confused do I have herpes?
Correlate: A pathologist's perspective: herpes simplex 1 generally affects the lips and mouth and most people are positive, simplex 2 the genitals, there's variability.

It is not transferable from one person to another by blood. Mostly sexually (or when one comes in contact with infected genital fluid) ...Read more

Urinated about 30 minutes before taking an aptima combo2 urine test for stds, also urinated into the cup midstream. Could that change the results?
Had testicle pain. Took antibiotics, but doctor didn't test for STDs until 13 days later. Test was negative, but is it valid? Am married. Test again?
Here are some...: Without detailed history stressing the onset, degree, duration, interval, progression, evolution, and the sequence of events on all related symptoms, it is hard to tell if testicular pain is related to STD or just the disorders of local muscles, joints, or nerves.

I did my medical test in the army, they took me blood and everything, I'm going shipday in 4ofmay, do I have to wait to the std test to go back? OrIdidOK?
No problem: Last I heard, HIV was the only STD test done routinely among active duty military personnel in the US.

Ask the medical personnel in your unit; even in the military, these issues are strictly confidential and you can ask freely. ...Read more

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

Herpes is often detected incidentally given the fact primary exposure often remains unknown. ...Read more
