It’s important that when you get screened for STDs, the clinician tests you in multiple places (rectum, penis, throat, etc.). You may have to be specific with your provider about what you need. An easy rule to remember is, “If you use it, test it.” A good check-up includes throat testing for gonorrhea, rectal testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia, urine testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia and blood tests for herpes, syphilis and HIV.
