Response from Ms. Southall

Hi When you put your health at risk by having unprotected sex you should be tested for all of the sexually transmitted infections. Western Blot is only used for HIV not any of the other STI's.

So yes you should be tested for all of the STI's.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
