Take a look- STD Tests
STD test is a medical testing to identify if one has a sexually transmitted disease.
However, there is no one standard test to identify all kinds of STDs so it is important
for one to know which kind of STD test will help you determine what kind of sexually
transmitted disease you might or might not have.
There are quite a few reasons to get yourself checked for STD, the most obvious
one is to check if you indeed have something to worry about or not. Another reason
to get an STD test is to screen you for symptoms that might lead to an STD. After
getting yourself tested, you might also want to recommend an STD test to your long
term partner in case that you are planning to have a baby. For expecting mothers,
an STD test is also recommended to prevent the disease from affecting your baby.
STD test is also used for those who might want to donate blood; no one would want
blood from someone with STD!
Going to your doctor, more specifically your gynecologist is your best bet for getting
the most appropriate STD test for you. The reason for this is that your own doctor
will know your history, thus you will be more comfortable talking to your doctor
about the symptoms that you have been experiencing or what specific disease you
are worrying about. However, if you are knowledgeable about STDs, and you know
what disease that you would like to be tested for, it would be best to ask your doctor
outright, because chances are, your doctor will just test you for a routine STD test.

Your doctor should recommend for you to get STD tests for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea,
Cervical Cancer and HIV, which are diseases that should be routinely checked for.
However, if you are expecting a child, the STDs that you should be checked for are
HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Bacterial Vaginosis. These
tests are usually conducted during the woman's first prenatal check-up, and then
during the third trimester as a very good precaution that she has not contracted
anything in between visits.
However, if you know that you have been exposed to a specific kind of STD which
is not usually recommended for testing by doctors, these diseases are not routinely
tested for: Syphilis, Tricomoniasis, Genital Herpes, Hepatitis B, Chancroid, and
Bacterial Vaginosis. It would be best to get tested as soon as possible.
You will be able to sleep better at night knowing that you have undergone an STD
test and have tested negative for any disease.
