Quick question.. please reply! about my testing..
      #166653 - 12/09/05 04:04 AM

Ok.. so I have finally accepted I dont have HIV..

but am a bit worried I may have contracted some other STD

I told my doctor about my worries and she ordered up some blood tests and a urine sample.. I know for sure she said HIV testing, and I remember her saying somethign chlamydial testing or something, but Im not too sure she if she was refering to chlamydia.. i was way to anxious to care about any other STDs other then HIV..

anyways so the nurse took out 4 tubes of blood and had gotten one urine sample from me.. I was wondering if they screened me for other STDs? Like is that normal protocol? do they need 4 tubes for HIV testing? cuz if not then I know the other tubes were for STD screening.. and im sure the urine sample was not for hiv testing so it mustve been for other STD screening! right?

No, they don't need four tubes for HIV testing. sounds like they did a full STD screening. (the urine wasn't for HIV either)

Are you an idiot??? I am an Md and you conveyed to the doctor you were concerned about other STDs? What do you expect? They will test you for other STDs! And you are not sure of the difference between "chlamydial and chlamydia? There is only one letter differenced!! The extra tubes were likely for an intelligence test!!!
