Why should you know about sexually-transmitted diseases or infections?
all accept for C

always make sure that u get tested regularally if u are having sex a lot.
for C u can date some one if u have an std but u have to be responsable and let your partner know specially if u plan on being in a serious relationship with them.
never trust a guy when they say they are clean and give u some excuse not to use a condom.
1 in 5 have genital herpes and 80% of the population has the oral type.

Does an hiv test cover all kind of sexually transmitted diseases?
A HIV test only tests specifically for HIV antibodies. If you would like to check for other diseases, just let your health-care professional know and they will arrange for the other tests to be done.
btw, do remember that HIV has a 3-6 month window period where it can hide in your body and be undetectable to tests. Always remember to go back for a second test to confirm your status.
