how long after sex should i wait for an std test?
I was given unprotected oral sex and had partially safe intercourse, meaning the condom was taken off half way threw the sex. This happened 5 days ago. How long should I wait to get a STD test so that is is accurate. I know I won't know for sure with HIV for 6 months, I just don't know about everything else. The reason this worries me is because a day or two after the sex I noticed that I have to urinate more often, and not getting as much urine out, and that the tip of my penis slightly burns. There is no cloudiness of the urine or any other discharge from it.

You can get tested for bacterial std's a week afterwards. hsv and hiv you have to wait 3 months for.

www.ashastd.org has terrific info on all std's and how to test for them.

What did your results say exactly?  Do you have a copy of them?  Was it a culture or a blood test?  A positive culture would be accurate.  A blood test can be a false positive or be read wrong.

If you tested positive for type 2, you probably had it before the encounter, but I'd still want to make sure you got the right test and that your doctor is reading it right.
