False Positive

I had a test for Trichomonas and the same day also had my routine pap smear.  The test for Trichomonas was negative; however, I got a call from my gynecologist a week later and was told I had trichomonas that showed up n the pap smear.  HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!?!?!  Both test were done the same day by the same physician.

there can be false positives as well as false negatives. discuss with your provider the odds tha tyou had either and decide together if it warrants additional testing or not.
