Ok to retest: After three weeks, a repeat test for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia can reassure you that you don't have these infections, however men typically don't get tested for other STDs that you may still have, such as Hep C, HIV, Herpes, Syphilis, Trichomonas, and HPV. Make sure your testing is thorough and get the HPV vaccine.
