    How long should I wait to get test for all STD's?

    Hi, I had sex with a girl from college. I wore a condom, and I was wondering how long I should wait to get tested for all known STD's? I know HIV/AIDS can take up to 6 months, but I don't want to wait that long for other STD's like Syphilis.

    So when should I have my first test? And when should I have me final?

    If the condom was used accurately and did not break or tear, there is no need for testing of HIV, syphilis, chlamydia or gonorrhea. These viral/bacteria agents cannot cross an intact latex barrier.
