when you go and get birth control pills for the first time and you tell the docs that you have never had sex will they still test you for a std?

No, they will not. STD testing is optional--so why not ask if you can get tested for STDs while making your appointment? Also, from your post in Ask a Sexpert about the unusual sensations you've been having, it'd be a good idea to get tested while getting a prescription for oral contraceptives.
