Both : You might as well get tested for both to see if you carry either or both.

Test For Both: If you are concerned/worried enough to be writing, then if nothing else it will ease your mind. The same is true for any and all STD's. It's unlikely that you have anything to be concerned about but it never hurts to be sure!
