it depends on the std. i would get tested every 6 months, and then go in immediately if you think you've had sexual contact with someone who has an STD or if you notice any physical symptoms.

As little as a week until as long as 10 years.

Most incubation periods are only a few weeks to a month. Herpes, for example, may show signs and symptoms of transmission after only 7 days after the infection.

However, more serious diseases, such as HIV and AIDS, have taken as long as 10 years to show up positive on a blood STD test.

It's always best to get yourself tested every 6 months no matter what. Most people do not change partners more than once every 6 months so it can help you to stay on top of your own health. For reasons in relation to AIDS contamination you will want to have blood-work done every 6 months for at least 10 years to make sure you don't develop the antibodies later on after infection. It's rare but does occur.

Take your health serious. One STD test is never enough. Protect yourself from disease in every way possible. Condoms and other contraceptive method simply do not make you "safe" from disease. Nothing is safe so make sure you use your head always get tested.
