with the knowledge that some stds have no symptoms, when should i get tested for stds?

If you have had lots of sexual partners, then you should get regular screening even if you practice safe sex.

if you have an active sex life then this should be routine. something to include when you have a pelvic exam or pap smear.

what exactly do you mean by lots, is there a specific number? it's kinda vague or subjective. :) I can't say I'm a saint, I've had my share of partners, but I definitely am not like sleeping with every other man I meet at a bar.

also I don't think getting tested for STD is a regular checkup for most women, unless they are in the "adult" industry.

I think what they meant is that even if you are not having many partners but maybe if you suspect your partner is or has had, then you should get tested. Also if you say you've slept with many men (not just any man) before, then it won't hurt you if you get tested.
