Yeah, he said the same thing. Except that according to him he did his testing and the doctor okayed him to have sex. But when he told the doctor that he had impregnated his partner again, the doctor just explained to him that "these things arent always 100%", and sometimes they have to go back and perform the operation again.

Be aware that there are sometimes false Positives for gonorrhea.
It has something to do with the way they culture it.
You should be retested.

Every test performed can have false positives as well as false negatives.

Testing for GC does not typically involve any type of culture, it is almost exclusively done by Genprobe. There is no point in being retested after treatment unless looking for test of cure. If the person has already been treated and is now negative what is the point of a retest?

Hey, so, I'm in a similar situation. My boyfriend came down with a uti and they checked for stds also since they usually go hand in hand for guys his age, he came back positive for gonorrhea. We had been having sex almost every day for about 2 weeks before that, but I had my period when his symptoms started, so we currently haven't had sex at all for the past 2 and a half weeks, I just went and got tested a few days ago, they gave me a treatment just to be safe but I haven't gotten my results back. He lives with me and the only time were not together is when we're at work, otherwise he's at home, which I know for sure because I see his work schedules and we live with my parents, they always know when he's here. I have no idea where the gonorrhea came from and neither does he. He's been searching for answers as much as I have. One doctor has told us that it's completely through sexual contact, but another has told us that she's unsure if there are other ways to get it. I can't tell you how you got it, but I can tell you that it is possible for something like this to happen. The infection has to come from somewhere in the first place, so Im guessing it could just form inside a person out of nowhere and it's just an extremely rare case, but that could be totally wrong. It has to have started somewhere, right?

I've never heard of any STD getting caught through the environment (as opposed to through sexual activity) with one exception, lice ("crabs"). There's a really remote possibility that they can be picked up through bedding, towels, public facilities, etc. With modern hygiene today, though, I guess they're much less common than they once were. Good thing.

I don't see how other STDs could be caught without intimate personal contact, though. There needs to be the "exchange of bodily fluids". And there are only so many scenarios where that could be possible.

Denial is a funny thing.

You are right.....that is totally wrong.....

STD's don't "spontaneously" appear out of nowhere like magic though many guys will try and tell girls that story....

No. Just no. Please educate yourself. These are sexually transmitted diseases. Period.


Also, all of you need to get tested for Herpes. They won't usually test you for it unless you specifically ask, and most people have no symptoms so they don't know they have it...which is why it's spreading like wildfire.

Did your boyfriend have sex with someone before you? And by that, I mean EVER. Because many men have STIs and do not know because they are more likely to be asymptomatic than women. So he could've had it for awhile. And no, there isn't "spontaneous generation."

The question I would ask since it hasn't been mentioned, do you use any sex toys that haven't been cleaned or did you actually check with his doctor to see if he even showed up for the test. Guys hate to go to the dr and will try anything to get out of it including accusing you of cheating on him. Just saying.
