In brief: STD screening
Usually no screening for STD's is required unless you think you have had an opportunity to acquire one.

In brief: Depends on risk
I recommend gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV and syphilis routinely.
If the patient has not been vaccinated then i also recommend hepatitis b. If vaginal discharge or itching is present then i include trichomoniasis. In some cases i also include herpes 2 antibody testing.
