STD testing. - February 2nd 2010, 12:16 AM

What all do they usually test for and how exactly are you tested? It's basically just a blood test, right?

You'll have to find out what they're testing for as I'm not sure, and they'll be able to give you a list or whatever.

It tends to be from urine tests, swabs and blood tests, depending on what they're testing for. Once again, ask.

Also, often they allow you to swab yourself. So don't worry too much.

Don't let any of this put you off. This is what they do for a job, you're defiantly not the first or last they've ever seen. And being tested is important.

sometimes a urine test is enough.. like for chlamydia tests. we get given free chlamydia tests at college and it's just a urine sample. but yes, quite often they'll take a blood sample. and/or swab. it's nothing painful though. obviously if you have a pap smear it's different.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

The place where I went did swabs, and actually had these mouth swabs things to test for HIV. No blood needed, that was nice.

When reality is a prison, your mind can set you free.
