Expert Q & A Answers About STD tests
I am sexually active and have been with more than one partner. Four months ago, I had a Pap smear and it came back normal. However, today I got a sports physical and my urine came back with bacteria. Since my last Pap smear, I have been with just one person and I know he hasn’t been with anyone else. Could I have an STD even though my Pap smear was normal? Do Pap smears detect STDs? I have not had any symptoms or problems.
What tests detect STDs? Is there one test or are there a series of tests?
Recently, it hurts to have intercourse with my boyfriend. We looked, and there is a small cut that looks like an ulcer on my vulva. What is it and how can I treat it? I don’t want to go to my doctor.
