Not always: Urine testing is a good means by which infections and some stds such as chlamydia and gonorrhea can be detected however a lot of other infections and stds are also missed this way. You will need to be seen by a gynecologist for a pelvic exam and more detail testing to detect all infections. Herpes may present with blisters and burning as well.
