But it does not detect any other STDs; specific STD tests (e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas) need to be requested by the doctor. And yes, vaginal and labial burning often is caused by yeast. (Which of course is not an STD.) Discuss with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

If you have even a small suspicion of herpes, then run - don't walk - to your medical provider or STD clinic for urgent evaluation and treatment. Hope that helps! ...Read more
