For a complete STD test, they'll take urine and blood samples. They may do a papsmear as well. Test results take about a week to get back. If you choose to have an HIV test as well, you'll need to return to the office to get your results. Otherwise, they either call or send you a letter, assuming it's all negative. If something is positive, they'll need to discuss treatment options.
