Hey, I was wondering how they test for Aids and stds like do they take blood or what?
How you get tested
That's correct - for AIDS they take blood and look to see if you have antibodies to the HIV virus - you only have these antibodies if you have the virus. For other STDs they may look for antibodies or for the pathogenic organism itself.
Pathogenic organism? what is that does that mean they like check your penis lol, and do they take alot of blood for Aids
I was meaning in the blood. A pathogenic organism is a bacterium or protozoon or virus or fungus or whatever that causes a disease. Sometimes these are easy to find in the blood, and sometimes they are not.
With some STDs (not AIDS) it is indeed helpful to look at your genitalia, and a doctor would normally do so. For gonorrhea they will take a urethral swab, best not thought about.
