Post Sexual abuse & STD

If someone you know has been sexually abused as a kid, should they be tested for an STD? How do you know if you have an STD? I've heard there aren't symptoms, or if there are, there aren't much. Also, can you be diagnosed with an STD just by a regular blood test? Or is there a special blood test just for STD's?

depends on the type of std you have in order to have symptoms.

hpv sometimes you can have symptoms warts or abnormal papsmears and sometimes one will never have any symtoms.

there are many types of symptoms one can get from std but sometimes they dont have any.
