blood test again

Jun 15, 2002

hi doc.. you have mentioned that a few STD bacteria can be cultured from blood culture test, can you explain more about it, which bacteria(STD)-gonorrea/chlamydia/trich/syphilis or others.. and what do you mean by "most are cultured from primary site of infection"? thanks for your answers.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Primary site, as in genital, anal, or oral cavity. And no I will not go further as this will set off the audience. If you have more questions, please consult your doctor.

Are symtoms of infection common amongst family members?
