Listed below are the "window periods" for std testing from WikiAnswers.com. For example,
chlamdyia: 2 wks - 6 wks, means you can test as early as 2 wks, but it MAY take up to 6 wks to get a positive test result if you have been infected. It varies from person to person.)

chlamydia: 2 wks - 6 wks
Gonorrhea: 2 - 7 days
Syphilis: 10 - 90 days
Hep A: 15 - 50 days
Hep B: 45 - 180 days
Hep C: 2 wks - 6 months
HPV: A few weeks to several years.
Herpes: (blood test) 4 wks - 3 months
HIV: 2 wks - 3 months, but can take up to 6 months for a conclusive result. If you get a negative result before 6 months, re-test at 6 months to be certain your results are accurate.
