Examined and treated for gonorrhea but tested negative?
Experiencing vaginal soreness and yellow-green discharge, I went to Planned Parenthood. I was examined and treated for gonorrhea & chlamydia. I began to experience relief of the symptoms within 24hrs. I called weeks later to get the urine test results but they came back negative? Was this a false negative? I'm sure I was infected, the Nurse Practitioner agreed that it looked like gonorrhea. She aslo examined a swab under the microscope and noted abnormally high presence of white blood cells. The treatment was almost immediately effective. My partner at the time admitted to having unprotected sex with two other people but never got tested himself. The negative test is really throwing me off.
Hi and welcome. False negative do happen but most experts consider them rare. Well now we really wont know as the meds have most likely killed them by now.
if it was me, i would be more inclined to believe i had it as did have symptoms and they did clear up after the meds kicked in.
Were these symptoms in your urethrea or in you vagina.
I would lean towards your boyfriend had it and would get him tested before sex with him agaim
Thanks for the quick reply! The symptoms were vaginal not urinary. I agree with you, I'm inclined to say that I was infected and just got a false negative. I had the symptoms and the treatment given was effective. Treatment only works if you have the disease, right?
