After possible exposure, how soon should I test for STDs?
|STD||When To Test After Exposure||When To Get Retested|
|Chlamydia||1-5 Days||Test again 2 weeks after treatment to verify you are clear of all signs of Chlamydia|
|HIV||1-3 Months||Retesting not necessary as the virus will remain for life. If you test positive, seek treatment immediately.|
|Gonorrhea||2-6 Days||Get tested again 2 weeks after treatment to make sure you’re clear of the Gonorrhea bacteria|
|Syphilis||3-6 Weeks||Test again 3 months after you are cleared of the bacteria to ensure all traces are gone.|
|Oral Herpes*||4-6 Weeks||Retest regularly if you engage in unprotected oral sex|
|Genital Herpes||4-6 Weeks||Test again after 3 months to confirm initial results, even if the initial test showed as negative|
|Hepatitis A*||2-7 Weeks||Virus will remain for life, so retesting is unnecessary|
|Hepatitis B*||3-6 Weeks||Virus will remain for life, so retesting is unnecessary|
|Hepatitis C||8-9 Weeks||Test again 3 months after testing positive to verify initial results|
