Hi all,

I hope you don't mind me popping in to say hello and ask a quick question. My partner and I are thinking we will start trying next year (at age 25). I have my yearly appointment next month, so I want to go ahead and ask my doctor some questions while I'm there.

One thing I read in a couple pregnancy books is that you should get STD testing done before conceiving, if possible. This is something I've never done and I'm thinking it might be a good idea. My question is, is this something any of you have done? I'm a little nervous asking my doctor about it, though I'm sure he really won't care. I'm mostly concerned about my insurance. Do you think getting tested before pregnancy will make me look high-risk to my insurance, and if so can it affect my coverage at all? I'm on an state-sponsored HMO, if that matters.

And I'd welcome any other suggestions for things to talk about with my OB/GYN.
