Make sense for an asymptomatic woman whose last sexual activity was 2 years ago to test for syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes, chlamydia just to be safe?

STD Testing: Every adult should have a herpes blood test to see if they have ever been exposed to herpes. It is common during pap smears now to include gc and chlamydia testing. Then syphilis and HIV testing are based more upon sexual risks. Now then we can discuss hepatitis a, b, and c. And hpv. Every sexually active adult must ask for and get the gardisil vaccine. Their lives depend on it.

Yes!: Herpes, hpv, and chlamydia are for certain!
