Brief Answer:
likely to be negative for STDs

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for follow up query.
The chances of std with oral sex is rare except for herpes which can be transmitted by kiss or skin to skin contact.
Otherwise wait for the result .
It should usually come negative for hiv.other tests done also not clear. You can as well wait for results .as you do not have/ had symptoms all are likely to come negative.
You can get back for any clarification

Brief Answer:
better to repeat vdrl.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for query
It is negative/inconclusive but better to be repeated to check for false positive or low titre positive.
I would rate as negative.
If herpes 1&2 antibody igG is negative means negative for both hsv 1 & 2. Mean you were not infected with hsv

non infectious after treatment almost immediately

Hi
Thank you for follow up query.
VDRL titres are followed up after treatment 3 6 9 12 months after treatment. Usually titres decrease.some it may persist for long time inspire of treatment .This is the test which comes negative after treatment.the tests may show positive but remain non infectious.
Once treated appropriately patients will not be infectious Almost after 1st dose.the treatment is effective.
