Antibiotics effect on VDRL/RPR tests
Hi

I would like to know antibiotics effect on VDRL/RPR tests

1st test- was on cipro(for a 1 week) and azithromycin (for 3 days )  1 week before the test and Pencillin injection previous day of the test... RPR Non Reactive

2nd test- was on Clarytromycin (for 10 days ) before 1 month and was on 3rd day of doxycycline(for 14 days ).. VDRL Non Reactive

Currently on Augementin (10 days ) ,will be going in to test after 1 week after the course completion

Will it be false negative? How long should i wait ?

1st- Not sure about the 1st 2 medications but the pencilin has a good chance to cure a possible syphilis infection.

2nd- Since you had been injected with penicilin if you had syphilis possibility of it being cures.

Why were you on all of those different medications?

All the treatment was for Chronic Pharyngitis and Chronic Sinusitis

Am not sure whether the pencillin given was  pencillin -G and whether it was 2.4 million units?

How long should i wait after my course of Augementin antibiotics ? will be going in to test after 1 week after the course completion

Can't be HIV...negative test 6 months after exposure.

And no symptoms seem to be STD related. Sounds more like the flu in Feb.

I will not assume you got Trich from oral sex because you can't.

Why don't you understand that protected sex is safe sex?

Thanks 4 replying vance ,I know ,Protected sex is suppose to be safe and 6 weeks negative after my protected encounter,i should have moved on  ..But with all the symptoms and i have read condoms are not 100% and i have also read in aidsmeds who just tested postive stating they always used condoms .Docs here in india state the same that condoms dont always protect against HIV

Please answers my above question and also i wondering what are the odds of STD & STD transmission if a person touches the outer surface of the condom tip(to check for breakage) and then touches tip of the penis to wash it

Am getting married in 2 months, its just that i dont want to infect my fiancee with HIV or any other STD.I know am being annoying now but hope you understand my postion

No condoms do not always protect because people don't use them correctly and they break. Someone will not get HIV from using a condom with no breakage.

I can tell you know more because as I have said this is not STD related.

Testing positive for HSV1 really doesn't mean anything.  About 80% of the population has oral herpes (I am assuming your positive HSV-1 means oral herpes).  Testing positive for HSV-1 does not delay seroconversion. Don't worry about increase risk of hiv from it -- you had to have an outbreak for that to apply.

thank you. Can herpes cause chronic sore throat for one year. I believe i got it giving oral sex to a csw last year. I have chronic sore throat from then. I never had sores on lips. Sores were present back of throat which always were diagnosed as pharyngitis.
