No The hpv vaccine has nothing at all to do with HIV or Hep C. No vaccines alter those test results in any way

Also, if a friend sat on my leg for a few seconds and was wearing very very short dress and I felt skin on my leg (maybe her vagina touching my leg) I'm not sure if she was wearing underwear but probably.
This was nothing sexual at all, but is there any chance I could get and stds -chlamyda, gonorrhea, or genital herpes etc if her skin touched my leg like that!?

I was wearing a short dress too so she sat on my bare leg
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.

You cannot acquire an std unless you have intimate/sexual contact. A sexuallly transmitted disease occurs in the genital area, not your leg. No

Ok thanks. One more question- if you got a hep c test and the. Result was negative and said s/co ratio <0.1, should any future tests all have the same ratio if negative? Like if another future test said <0.3 could there be something wrong? Negative range is <0.8

Ok thanks. One more question- if you got a hep c test and the. Result was negative and said s/co ratio was <0.1, should all future tests also be that number? What if a future test said <0.3? Could that mean a problem? Neg range is <0.8

<0.1 should all future tests be < 0.1? What if a future one said <0.3?

Sorry I don't know if the question is going through

for a hep c test / if it was negative and the s/co ratio was <0.1
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.

There is no such result as less than 0.3. It will be <0.1 (negative) or it will be positive. If it's <0.3. It means nothin, still negative.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, but is there a reason that it could fluctuate between <0.1 and < 0.3? Why would the numbers be different at different times of testinf?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think ive read about people getting a result of <0.3 or <0.4
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.

Different labs, different reference ranges
