i've had a few bladder infections before in the past, and a few times they've sent my urine off to the lab for a culture test or whatever... i never really heard back about anything more than it just being a bladder infection? what type of std's can they detect by a culture test, or would they even test for std's?

im worried i have a genital std or something of that sort. so i was wondering if they would have detected it through a urine culture test? i have an appointment made to go get test but was trying to figure out if i can relax a little knowing ive had cultures done in the past and not heard anything back from them.

so i guess my question is i have some sort of genital std, if there any possible chance they would have noticed it when doing a urine culture test? i know that genital warts and herpes are usually diagnosed by examine and scrapping the area, so im not very hopeful that a urine culture test would be efficient , i just want to know i guess if its possible
