eg. What are ways to avoid getting all types of STD?

Can a pap smear be done with STD testing automatically or do you need to consent to STD tests specifically?

Asked by on October 27, 2013

I saw a patient who tested positive for gonorrhea and she was upset because she didn’t want to be tested nor did she know STD testing was going to be done. Is this because STD testing is just included as the standard-of-care for sexually active women at risk or did she need to give consent to STD testing first?
This is in IL by the way.
