RPR 1.1 confirmation text negative

Nov 5, 2017


I am very confused. I had my rpr test and it was 1.1 but then the confirmation text was negative. There was a risky encounter about 2 months prior to testing. Do I need to test again? Does the false confirmation mean that I forsure do not have syphilis?

I do not remember being treated in the past for syphilis.

Please help, thank you.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate whether you have any signs or symptoms of syphilis. I suggest you discuss these results with your doctor to determine whether additional testing is indicated.

Syphilis positive after treament
Any other tests required?
