Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.
Thank you for this information. And was he tested again as well to confirm his positivity or lack thereof?
That's usually the next step in my practice. Now that your daughter had a confirmatory test, it would be good to retest him as well.
In my practice it usually ends up being that one partner has had a different partner. And that can always hard to uncover and address.
Yes, a urine test in men is quite accurate but it should be the first bit of urine and done earlier in the day. A clean catch isn't ideal for urine testing in men.
Clean catch is when the genital area is wiped first, urination begins, and then a sample is collected. For STD testing, the first amount of urine is ideally collected.
