Obgyn STD Testing: When to Get Tested
There are many reasons to seek obgyn STD testing. If you are sexually active and have had unprotected sex with a partner who has an STD, or who has not been tested for STDs, you should get tested. If you usually use condoms or other barrier methods as protection during sex, that is an excellent way to protect yourself from many STDs! However, certain STDs and parasites can still be transmitted during sex, even when barrier methods are used. These include human papillomavirus (HPV), genital herpes, syphilis, crabs, and scabies. So be mindful if any symptoms listed below develop after sexual activity.
Many STDs are asymptomatic, which means you can be carrying an STD without ever experiencing symptoms! That’s why it is smart to get tested regularly even if you don’t think you have an STD. Your annual well woman exam is a good time to request obgyn STD testing. If you experience any of the symptoms below, book an appointment with a gynecologist as soon as possible.
- Painful urination or bowel movements
- Itchy, inflamed, or painful genitals or anus
- Unusual vaginal discharge
- Pain during intercourse
- Bleeding between periods
- Unusually heavy menstrual flow
- Small red bumps, blisters, or open sores in the genital, anal and surrounding areas
