No. Those STD's require a swab and culture for diagnosis.

Trich never is known to infect the oral cavity. Gonorrhea does so, and chlamydia only very rarely -- and causes no symptoms or disease. If exposed, have an oral gonorrhea test. Good luck.

You should not be re-retested. Only do you have symptoms or lesions which you do not have an answer then you should see your doctor.
