Hi that particular med is really not used to treat std,s but since its an antibiotic it may affect the test showing a negative result but if your tests show a negative result you dont have the std,s you tested for anyway.

Testing for Syphilis was one of the test  would it not affect it?

Syphilis was one of the stds tested for so would the cefdinir not affect it?

as i said it is an antibiotic so would kill bacteria to some degree but if you tested negative at 6 weeks you dont have it
