I'm curious as to why when a woman gets tested for Stds they only do a blood and urine analysis and not a throat swab?

If a woman indicates she had also engaged in oral sex (providing it) they will likely do a throat swab.

And by the way, your same question could be asked of men undergoing STD testing.
