      chlamydia and trich would be a swab yes. ive heard people on here having blood tests to check for herpes but the best way is to swab the open sores. and as for HPV ive not heard of it being tested for in a blood test. i think they take biopsies of a suspected wart and test it? but im not an expert. but when i have been std screened i had a blood test for hiv/ syphilis and then a swab for chlamydia / gonorrhea. we dont routinely test for trich here
