Syphilis testing

Does anyone know if I should consider a negative RPR test for syphilis at twelve weeks post exposure to be definitive or should I test again at a later date.  I have heard sometimes false negatives can happen n the RPR test.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

6 weeks is when a conclusive test can be taken, so if your worried about a false negative...12 weeks. Doubt it.

Vance, thanks for the reply.  How about a hep b test at twelve weeks (negative)?  Was the antibody test.  Think 12 weeks is definative?

Finally, had an HiV antibody test at 8 weeks (negative).  think I should have another now that I'm 15 weeks post exposure?

The exposure was condom protected oral, received rimjob with tounge covered by condom and then she fingered my anus.  Think some of her saliva got in my anus.

Would love to hear your additional thoughts on testing.

Thanks again for your advice.

Post in the HIV and Hep B forums please.

From your exposure I see no risk for anything.
