How long does it take to show up positive?
I had unprotected sex and two days later had a full STD testing. All my tests came back negative. I was just wondering if these results are accurate or did I not wait long enough after unprotected sex to get tested? Do STD's show up that quick after unprotected sex?

You should wait about a week to test for gonorrhea and chlamydia, 6 weeks to test for syphilis, 3 months for HIV, and 4 months for herpes (though many will test positive for HIV and herpes sooner than that).

Its good that you tested though - if you come up positive for any of these later, you'll know its a new infection.
