What are the standard STD tests they do when you are pregnant? I know HIV is an optional test, but dont they also test for herpes?

If you don’t get HIV tested they will test your baby at birth, so its not really an option. They test for gonnorhea and chlamydia not sure if they test for herpes.

Here’s a link to a list of standard pregnancy tests and screening. Hope that helps. A lot of these tests are optional, though, so if you’re worried about something in particular, be sure to mention that to your doctor.

usually none of the std test during pregnancy are optional. They need to know everything because they can seriously effect your child.

When I found out I was pregnant, they tested for all STD’s except herpes. That is one test that they never include even when they are testing for all STD’s. Typically they will not test you unless you specifically ask, or you have a possible outbreak. This is why so many people have herpes and do not know that they have it…
