What is an STD test?
STD testing is a way to determine if you have sexually transmitted diseases. There are over 20 types of STDs, including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV. Some STDs can cause long-term health problems if left untreated like:
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
What is a recent exposure STD test?
A recent exposure STD test is a blood test that can detect the presence of specific STDs in your blood. This is usually done after a high-risk exposure to an STD, such as unprotected sex. Diagnostic testing is the first step if you suspect you've been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease; tests include:
- Chlamydia and Gonorrhea test
- Hepatitis B and C testing
- Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 and 2 testing
- HIV testing
- Syphilis testing
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP)
When to get an STD test after exposure?
For many STDs, it can take between a few weeks and several months for you to develop symptoms. The testing window, however, varies depending on the STD you were exposed to. Testing windows for some common STDs are as follows:
- HIV: 23-90 days for an antibody test
- Chlamydia: 1-2 weeks
- Syphilis: within 3 weeks after sores appear
- Gonorrhea: 5 days-2 weeks
- Herpes: 1-3 months
