STD testing: These common infections are easily tested. There are antibody tests for each of these viruses. There are more fancy tests if there is anything acute going on. But you can get tested at any std clinic, any family clinic or even at your obgyn. If you do not have insurance the std clinic may be easier or even planned parenthood can do this testing for you.

Several: Hiv test (obviously), hsv 1&2 (oral & genital), hepatitis (a-b-c) panel. Your dr / gyn or an "std clinic" provider can order these for you and help interpret the results.
