Should get tested: A person who has sex with a chlamydia-infected person needs to get checked for chlamydia and other STD's. That is because STD's have friends and run in packs... like chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomonas, etc... Luckily, everybody gets Gardasil HPV vaccines, right? That means people should not be catching the wart and cancer strains of HPV, right? If positive tests, doctor starts treatment.

It shouldn't: If you're not certain, you can always get rechecked. Talk to your doc about your std risks & prevention.
