    i have a friend who SWEARS he got tested for clamydia (sp?) from a blood test or sum shit....



    now, i have another friend who had clamydia (sp?) and got tested and they had to stick what looked like a q-tip about halfway up his penis :ugh: to test for it - they said this was the only way.



    anyone know for sure how they test for it?

    All std tersts can be performed with a urine culture and a blood test. The swab (q-tip) test is no longer needed.

    Speaking of this shit... I need to go get tested for HPV/Warts tomorrow :(

    Like, my GF has it, but we haven't slept together. However, there was stuff there before we ever started doing stuff but I have something that looks similar in my right arm pit. I always figured it was that...

    bacterial stds are tested via urine samples, viral infections are tested by blood drawing.

    Actually, I just read up on it last night. That for HPV, there is no viable way to test males for it. That's pretty scarey kinda since they seem to spread it most because it doesn't really show up on males.

    That's correct. A lot of males are not symptomatic but are carriers fo the virus.

    They can test for most everything with a urine test. I just had that and a blood HIV test done last month!!! Feels good to know I'm clean... cause I've definately banged some not so pure girlies here at college.

    HPV cannot be tested for in men. The only way to know if a male has HPV is if symptoms occur. I've done the research, this is what most people say. It is sort of a relief to know the Q-tip is no longer needed, as I think I should go get the full range of tests done soon. Should I just go to my regular doctor for that or what?

    I've only been tested for HSV (herpes) and that came back negative, but in retrospect I should probably get the full range. Can anyone advise?

    just remember, hiv can take up to like... 9 months or something to show up in blood tests. i got tested last summer as i went to college, clean. i'm gonna get tested again this summer when i go back home to check again (only slept with 2 girls since then, both clean. but one during last summer might not have been).
