I have reason to believe my husband gave me a STD (thinking Chlamydia or Gonorrhea). We were having issues late 2012/ early 2013. We've both have been having issues with our genital area, thinking it was other issues. I have a doctor's appointment next week for an unrelated issues. At that appointment can I request my gynecologist test me for these STDs? Is there an insurance issue that comes with this (I have an HMO). How are test results for STDs handled; if its positive will that office tell me over the phone or is it required that I make another appointment for these results. We have been together 12 years/ married 3.

Yes;you can certainly request STD testing at that appointment. How the results will be handled will depend on the policy of your particular physicians office.
