Syphilis test ?

Hi doctor, I am a man, 26 year olds. i had a syphilis test (RPR and TPHA compo) after 9 weeks exposure. The test result is negative for both. I know that this test is not conclusive and i must re-test after 3 months exposure. However, i am confused now because after i did the 9 weeks syphilis test i took oral dose of azithromycin which treat for my current chlamydia disease. So whether such antibiotic affect syphilis test and the 3 months-test for syphilis which i intend to test will not be conclusive for me? if not which test is conclusive, how long i must wait for??. Thank you very much doctor

How accurate is your HSV-2 test?

I recently was sexually active with a partner who subsequently tested positive for HSV-2; she had never been tested before, I had tested negative a few months prior. I retested soon after and again was negative. Now it has been about 10 weeks and I want to test again to make sure that I haven't converted before becoming sexually active with a new partner. If this upcoming test for HSV-2 is negative, how sure can I be? What is the false negative rate of this test?
