What do my lab test results indicate?
Got a pelvic exam done a week ago and was told all was fine. I'm kind of freaking out over "exposure" and probability of having it. Can someone help me?
It means antibodies are there but disease isnt.
Thanks for writing.
I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.
Usually in medical terms when a person is said to be exposed to an STD at some point life,it usually means that there is no active infection at the moment but antibodies were found in the body.
Antibodies are formed when a person gets espoxed, these antibodies fights off the disease and they stay in the body for some time even if disease is no more there, so in my opinion in case of your boyfriend as well he has gotten rid of the germs he was exposed to but there must have been antibodies present in his blood which got detected and doctor said he was exposed to the virus at some point in life.
In such situations the person is not a danger and he does not transmit diseases. I would suggest you not to panic there shouldn't be any problems you will have to face.
I hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.

Usually such people dont transmit.
Hello thanks for writing back,
As i said earlier , in such situations a person doesn't transmit disease to others. If you can share with me exact transcript of resports i will be able to guide you even better.
Can you show me the reports somehow?
Unfortunately none of them are in my possession. From my end however, I had a pelvic examination 1 week ago and was told everything is good. I haven't experienced any symptoms either, so while stds can go unnoticed sometimes, I find my probability to be low. Would you agree?
You probability is quite low according to info you have given me
Yes indeed your probability is quite low if you have got to know the true report as you told me. Plus there are no symptoms so its very less likely that you are having any issues.
Did You get blood tests as well other than pelvic exam? Antibodies or culture?
