Which STDs should I get tested for?


Q: I am a man who has had sex with multiple woman, but not for about four years. Since then I have committed myself to refraining from all sexual contact until marriage. My girlfriend has been committed to this for her entire life, and has never partaken in any sexual behavior. She is so precious to me that I don't want to leave any chance of giving her an STD when we get married. I don't have any symptoms of any STDs-- which ones would you recommend getting tested for and why? I've read that many of them are often symptomless.

Symptoms:  none
