Blood Test

I recently went to get a blood test and asked to be checked for STDs as well, they gave me my blood work back and told me that I was non-reactive and was negative to everything, on the sheet it only said HIV and RPR but the doctor told me that the RPR covered everything from Syphilis,Chlamydia,Gonnarrhea, etc... I thought RPR only covered Syphilis, should I get checked again?

Blood tests cannot be used to diagnose Chlamydia nor gonorrhea.

The blood test would only confirm if you have developed antibodies from previous chlamydia and/or gonorrhea infections.  Had you tested positive, that wouldn't necessarily mean you have a current one.  Urine or cervical culture tests are best for chlamydia/gonorrhea.
