Hello Dr Paula,
I recently received news that two swabs I’d done to check for chlamydia and gonnorhea came back as negative 15 days after sexual encounter. Would these swabs have detected trichomoniasis also or would another swab test be required? Apologies, I was afraid to ask my doctor and started to google frantically as I’m paranoid.
My syphilis blood test returned as negative also. I was wondering, could a blood test at 10 days after potential exposure to syphilis- can this be accurate in determining a negative result or should I get retested? Or is it only if you generate a syphilis sore you should return for testing?
