Hi Anonymous,

I am assuming VDRL that you are mentioning is venereal disease research laboratory test. This is a test for syphilis. Syphilis although with this test there can be false positives with other possible bacterial infections and since he tested negative twice and positive once, I am thinking there may be a discrepancy so you should abstain from sexual contact until you find out the source and go to the doctor for treatment. If indeed he has syphilis, it is treatable with penicillin which can be prescribed by your doctor.


I hope this helps.
