When can I get Tested for STDs?

Patient: How soon after unprotected sex can you have a std check




Doctor: If you are a sexually active person you may get a bloodwork for STD as soon as possible. Infections from different organ isms appear at different time in the blood ( usually between 1 week to a month or more). If it is the first time of unprotected sex you may wait 2-3 weeks before getting the test done.
