2. Your doctor will not automatically test for STDs
You need to communicate with your doctor if you want testing done, because it’s not part of a typical exam. “Some people assume they will be tested for STDs when they have an exam for another reason, such as when a woman has a Pap test or when a man has a physical,” Planned Parenthood says. “This is not true — you will not automatically be tested for STDs.” So, if you want to be tested, you need to specifically tell your doctor.
