About a year ago I engaged in unsafe sex with a parnter, I always planned to get an STI test to be sure. I've never experienced symptoms of any kind and I have always had protected sex since.
My girlfriend knows about the unprotected sex and she's not worried as we always use protection. Regardless I want to get a test to be safe. I have been putting it off but some circumstanced have changed and I'm moving in with her next week. So I'll be getting a test done ASAP, but how long (typically) will it take for the results to come in?

It will probably take around a week to receive results. (This will depend somewhat on the testing procedures at your particular clinic/care provider....if they have an on-site lab vs. sending it out, how long their lab takes, etc.)
