Required Testing?


I never gave much thought about HIV testing or other std's etc...I am 22 yr old straight female have only been with two guys who both were virgins(and yes couple incidents unprotected). I do get my annual gyno visits and have had vaginal swab for stds but not any bloodwork for hiv, syphilis, or hepatitis. Last sexual encounter summer of 2006 but i did go with a friend this summer 2007  to donate blood. Now i didnt go to donate blood to get tested and answered all questions honestly. Like i said before i never gave it much thought but since i highly doubt those two guys lied to me and really feel like i trusted them theres always that lingering thought of "what if". So, my question is should i get tested if anything for a peace of mind? or should i be content with the fact that the blood bank has called me back for my next donation?....thanks a lot!
