Brief Answer:
Wait for reports

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX welcome to health care magic.
I have seen the attached reports and in my opinion there is nothing to worry about as yet.
Get the results of repeat tests and then we can compare them.
In the meantime take care of following points -
- always use a condom while having sex
- keep good perineal hygiene
- avoid sharing common bathrooms as far as possible
- (sorry to say) avoid multiple sexual partners if at all exposed.
These simple precautions will help you in long run and rest we can discuss after the reports.
All the best
Regards
Dr Manisha Jain

Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
Not only via sexual route

Detailed Answer:
No dear, it can be contracted via contaminated water or hands which have been in touch with infected clothes, toilet seats and even taps.
So it's good that you have been with just one partner and let's wait for your test results.
All the best
