    most stds dont have symptoms unless u have visable spots or warts chlamydia an the others sometimes dont have any synptoms and the only way they can be detected is by specifically testing urine or by swabs or blood test

    Routine health screens do not test for stis/stds. You must ask for a test for this! Also if wondering about herpes the majority of clinics/tests don't automatically test for HSV unless requested or indicated by the presence of a lesion!

    Just because you have no symptoms or any warning signs doesn't mean you are free from any infections or viruses. Most of these go undetected.

    Some people never show signs of having any; eg: herpes blisters or chlamydia. If your worried get checked.
