STD Test

I'm 26 weeks pregnant and just wondering what they tested for when they took my blood the first time.... I know one of the things was to see what blood type I am but other than that I wasn't told what they were testing for....an std maybe?

They test your blood type, for std's and do an aids test as well. So, if you are 26 weeks pg and had the tests done at the beginning and never heard any negative results...you are std/aids free:-) Good luck on the rest of your pregnancy!

yep, they test for stds, HIV, blood type, all that good stuff, so if you haven't heard of anything coming back positive, your in the clear!! Good luck and I hope everything goes well for you.

they only do an HIV test if you sign a consent form that's not automatic, everthing else is though.

I'm late on this, but it's usually discussed if you want to be tested for STDs. They can't just send you for those type of blood tests without asking you. Because they have to specifically write it on the blood script. They check you for your pregnancy hormone levels, sugar, blood type... hmmm.. dunno what else. If they did test you for STDs then they will tell you the results of your bloodwork. That's what they did for both my pregnancies.

Lilu--It may vary from state to state but they did not ask me if I wanted to be tested for STD's, they told me I was being tested for them but never was I given a choice. But the rest of what you said was the same as for me.
