Clinic Std Testing
No: State laws require that any facility, lab, or physician that gets a positive report of certain stds report it to the state department of health. Not doing so would be a criminal offense. Std results are not reported to any individual person or organization though so they only people that would know are you, your doctor, the lab, your insurance (if used), & possibly the state health department. ...Read more

How long does each type of STD testing results take to come in? My bf said he was negative the same day he was tested could he be lying? Gonorrhea
Recently just cured chlamydia. All other std testing negative. Now i have pain on both side of my hips. Could it be pid? Normal pelvic exam??
Not STD or PID: Not sure what you mean by "both side of hips". If you mean in the low abdomen near hips, recheck with your doctor/clinic about PID. Hip joint pain is definitely not PID. There is a rare problem called reactive arthritis, which can be triggered by chlamydia in genetically susceptible persons. However, RA rarely involves the hips and symptoms usually start a few weeks later. See MD if it continues. ...Read more
I urinated 30 minutes before giving a sample for STD testing. Does this reduce effectivness of amp test?
