    I have a physical examination today. Last time I had it done, I also asked for HIV test. What other STD related tests do you usually get done as part of routine check-up?

    Blood work and swabs for STIs. The doc should know what to check for.

    Agreed, I leave it to my doctor. Being an infectious disease specialist, who concentrates mainly on HIV/AIDS with an almost exclusive gay male practice, she knows better than me what to check.

    And when she briefs me on the results during a routine visit, she tells me about the HIV findings, hepatitis, and a raft of other STDs.
