Hi XXXXXX,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The syphilis and HIV are the two most important of the sexually transmitted diseases and the VDRL and Western blot are the serological tests to detect them. The tests have good sensitivity and they are Negative denotes that you do not have these diseases.
Today's era is risky, Unprotected sexual intercourse is most common method of spread of these diseases so you should be cautious in future not to involve in casual sex.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
