STD test

Apr 16, 2012

Two weeks ago my girlfriend had her annual screening with her doctor. Her test came back positive for gonarrhea. Last year she had the same test which was negative. I immediately got tested and received the antibiotic. I haven't received my test back but am wondering how common it is for tests to be FALSE POSITIVES.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Sorry, false positive is unlikely. DW

Disclosure desperate!!
