I'm a male who had unprotected oral/vaginal sex on a Friday night, and I got tested, (urine), on Monday afternoon. Was this too quick? Will it show STD's?

  • hey, i think most (chlamdyia, syph., gon.) take a few weeks to show up on tests, ..i believe herpes test is about 12-18 weeks for the antibodies to form in your body if you have it, and for HIV, 3-6 months, ...it will USUALLY show up after 3 months (they say it's like 95 percent accurate after 3 months, but most get tested after 6 months just for peace of mind as well)i know, its stressful waiting, but since it was a one time event, you're odds are OK, considering other variables are in your favor....just hope for the best and learn from it.-best of luck

Will it show STD's?Not all doctors or clinics test for the same STDs. And for some STDs, including genital herpes and human papillomavirus (HPV), there's no practical way to screen everyone, so testing is usually limited to high-risk groups and people with signs and symptoms of particular STDs.

  • You really have to ask for certain tests as well. If you don't ask for say a herpes blood test their not going to give you one unless your showing symptoms and even in that case they may just use a visual diagnosis. I would get tested again in 6 months to make sure there are no HIV anti bodys.
