You need to ask when you get there. “Full” to them could mean gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. To others, it could include those plus herpes and HIV. You need to ask.

You will be tested for:

•Non-Gonoccocal Urethritis (NGU)
•Bacterial Vaginosis
•Mycoplasma Genitalium
•Lymphogranuloma Venereum
•Molluscum Contagiosum
•Pubic Lice

You will NOT be tested for HIV or herpes unless you specifically ask for them–and pay extra for those tests. Do be sure to include those! They are not part of the standard testing process conducted by most clinics and doctor’s offices.

Females will receive a Pap exam and tested for HPV. Men should be examined visually for the presence of warts. There is no test for HPV in men, so unless warts are present, you may be infected and they are not detected by the exam.

You also may NOT be tested for the following unless you think you may have been exposed:
# Syphilis
# Trichomoniasis
# Hepatitis B
# Chancroid
# Bacterial Vaginosis

Bottom line, ASK your doctor and/or clinic WHAT they are including in the test. Far too many people walk away from test sites thinking they are “clear” when the fact is they were never tested for some STDs in the first place!
