How soon can stds be detected? I had unprotected sex on Saturday.
It depends on the STD. It can take 6 months for HIV to show up on a test. Some of the others may not show up right away either.
As far as I know, most STDs can be found right away. However, I know herpes and warts can go unfound for years, and you actually have to have a break out to be positive.
It depends on the STD. Chlamydia, Trigamonis, Gonorrhea 1-14 days. These can occur vaginally, anally, orally.
HPV, Herpes take longer and can lay, dormant, for a long time. Condoms DO NOT protect against these two viruses as they can exist on surrounding mucosa....a**l area, thighs, scrutum, base of p***s, around the vagina, in the mouth or on the lips. Yes, Genital Herpes DOES transmit to oral mucosa! The HPV vaccine is also in-effective! So, get tested and have annual pap smears!
