VDRL non-reactive, TPHA required.

Hi, am 28 years old. I have no STD history in the past. I have gone for the VDRL, HIV and Hepatitis B test and have been tested non-reactive. Do I need to confirm the VDRL with the TPHA test?? I am conducting these tests because I will be moving abroad soon as am getting married. So I need to have a clean medical history.

I see no reason for it, but different countries have different conditions so you have to check and see what the country requires.

Thank u so much. Even I found going thru all these tests in my case, completely meaningless. Still I went for them, got my TPHA and HSV results as well, they are all negative and perfect. Thank you.
