eg. What are ways to avoid getting all types of STD?

The likliness of getting a false negative on an STD screening?

Asked by on October 23, 2013

Is it more likely to get a false negative or a false positive on an STD screening, for Chlamydia for example, a urine test?

I had Chlamydia, took Azithromycin, 1 month after taking Azithromycin I got retest, another urine test. The result came up negative this time.
The nurses say, its definitely negative and that they usually don’t even have patients retest.
But I am hoping the negative test result I got is accurate and is not a false negative, so I didn’t know whether to get retested a 2nd time to confirm that it’s negative for sure?

And I haven’t had sex in months or during the treatment, so no chance of reinfection.
