Heb B and Chlam. questions
May 29, 2005

i recently was tested for all std's. my results came back and i am confused as to what the results mean. I have received my 3 vacines on Hep.when I was younger. Can someone please tell me if I have these deseases or not by the following results:

chlamydia antibodies, igG 1.50H ratio 0.00-0.90

Hep b Surface Ab 28.6H mIU/ml 0.0 - 8.0

Thank you very much.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your hepatitis B surface antibodies appear to be protective so the vaccine worked.

I am not sure why your provider sent Chlamydia antibodies. I usually send cultures when I am concerned about Chlamydia infection since antibodies can stay positive for years after infection - such is the case with IgG - indicates past infection.

Dr. McGovern

Why am I bleeding?
So am I cured?
