When You Donate Blood Do They Test For St Ds
No...however...: If you are reasonably concerned you may have an STD, then you should address that prior to donating blood. Conscientious donors are the backbone of a healthy blood supply--we need you & you need to be healthy. They do screen for some bloodborne "STDs" (hepatitis, HIV), but can't test for everything.
Can you tell me if someone is able to donate blood, and they use your blood, does that mean they are 100% clear of std's?
Not necessarily: Units are tested for evidence of a few stds that could be passed in the blood. However there are several that are not like gonorrhea and would have any evidence in the blood.

I'm HPV16&45 positive. Can I still donate blood? I'm B+. Is this disease transferable from one to another by blood? Or only sexually since its STD?
Only by sex: HPV virus is only transmitted by sexual contact if one sexual partner has this condition. It is not transfered by Blood transfusion as virus does not enter the blood. So any one with HPV infection can donate blood and blood is not tested for HPV. It is safe for you to donate bloodSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but...: All organ donors will be checked for all possible blood-borne / body-fluid-borne diseases such as HIV, syphilis, CMV, hep-B/hep-C, etc. Ask the detail at the center for organ harvesting. But, indeed, it is nice of you to think and ask this question for social conscience and safety. I salute you. Best. ..
Urinated about 30 minutes before taking an aptima combo2 urine test for stds, also urinated into the cup midstream. Could that change the results?
First morning urine: It is most accurate to get the first urine of the morning for the most accurate results. This could possibly change results otherwise if urine is dilute/"watered down".
Had testicle pain. Took antibiotics, but doctor didn't test for STDs until 13 days later. Test was negative, but is it valid? Am married. Test again?
Here are some...: Without detailed history stressing the onset, degree, duration, interval, progression, evolution, and the sequence of events on all related symptoms, it is hard to tell if testicular pain is related to STD or just the disorders of local muscles, joints, or nerves.

If ordered: It's also important to note that specific tests do need to be ordered. If your doc just wanted to "check some basic blood work, " he/she may or may not have specifically ordered std tests unless you had discussed it. It would not be included in a typical blood count or even comprehensive metabolic panel.See 1 more doctor answer
I did my medical test in the army, they took me blood and everything, I'm going shipday in 4ofmay, do I have to wait to the std test to go back? OrIdidOK?
No problem: Last I heard, HIV was the only STD test done routinely among active duty military personnel in the US. Maybe also hepatitis B and C, or maybe other STD testing, such as syphillis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. Probably none of these will delay your return home, even if positive. Ask the medical personnel in your unit; even in the military, these issues are strictly confidential and you can ask freely.
HIV, HSV, syphilis: You don't have a diagnostic rash with HIV and a blood test is necessary for diagnosis. Herpes, or HSV you will have classic rash in the genital area with primary infection, and a blood test can confirm that. Also the RPR test is used for diagnosis of syphilis if not having classic chancres
