Welcome back to the forum. I'm sorry to hear you are so anxious despite the negative lab tests.
1) All your tests are definitely negative. They PROVE you did not catch any of the infections for which the tests were done. You needn't worry and do not need any further lab tests.
2,3) The incubation periods for various tests are determined by the tests themselves, not the clinic doing them. However, differnt providers have different ideas abouthow long it may take until results are reliable. But 114 days is plenty for any and all of the tests you had.
4,5) I can't explain this but it doesn't affect the negative interpretation. If you have been immunized against hep B, the antibody is the result of the vaccine, and it means you are 100% immune to ever being infected with HBV. You shouldn't ever be tested for it -- a wasste of money.
6) The HCV test result is 100% relaible, regardless of the risk of infection. In any case, HCV is rarely sexually transmitted, despite what you think you have learned on line. The only proved sexual transmission scenario for HCV is among gay men who participate in traumatic (bloody) rectal sexual practices. Heterosexual transmission is rare if it occurs at all.
7) There was no reason for testing for HSV-1. Half of all adults have positive test results anyway.
8) Any and all HIV tests are 100% reliable more than 3 months after the last possible exposure.
You don't mention testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia, normally done by urine testing. Probably those tests were done and negative. If so, you can move on with no worry or concern about any of this. No further testing is recommended.

There was a mistake with my cut and paste. Sorry.
Hep C <0.1 flags N Range 0.0-0.9 It goes on to say negative is 100 Flags-N Range-nothing listed
I saw these comments before replying above. They do not change my opinions or advice.
I appreciate your prompt feedback... For some reason, not to offend planned parenthood, but they just don't provide the assurance that someone as qualified as yourself does. I am sorry I couldn't fit this into my previous posts, I was having computer issues (most likely me!)
Here is what my hep b and c results said on my lab result print out:
HBsAg Screen ^SE Result Negative Flags N Range Negative
Hep B Surface Ab^SE Result > 100 Flags N Range nothing listed
Hep C Virus Ab^SE Result <0.1 Flags N Range 0.0-0.9
1. Even though you think hep b is a waste of money are these results negative and are they definitive?
2. Does RPR stand for syphilis?
3. I am truly sorry but "half of adults have hsv1" doesn't ease my mind for some reason. Can I lean on the fact that I haven't had symptoms in over 3 months?
4. You said I don't need further testing? Does that include trich and ngu without any symptoms? I just want to have sex with my girlfriend and move on! I praise her to death for standing by me through all of this!
5. My gonn and chy results were indeed negative as well. I just wanted you to have all of the facts before giving me your sound advice... Last question... now are all of my results definitive and can I move on?
1) Yes -- your result is definitive either for a past (resolved) HBV infection or with past immunization.
2) Yes. The letters stand for rapid plasma reagin, a standard syphilis screening blood test.
3) The lack of symptoms after the sexual exposure is additional evidence you weren't infected with HSV-1 during that event.
4) Correct. There is no test for NGU wihtout symptoms. Trich is rare in men and harmless when it occurs, and goes away without treatment. Forget it.
5) I already said your results are definitive and you can move on.
That's all for this thread. There is nothing you can think of that would possibly change my opinion or advice, so I wont' have anything more to say.
Thank you! You provide music to my ears!
