In brief: Depends

Depends on the std.
Some, like gonorrhea or chlamydia may show up immediately after contracting the infection. Others like syphillis and HIV may take months to show positive testing.

It can vary depending upon the STD.
Chlamydia or Gonorrhea can be detected within days whereas herpes and HIV can take longer than a month depending on the assay used.
