A CBC will not generally show up the most common STDs like gonorrhea , chlamydia, and syphilis

It may be abnormal with very advanced AIDS- but that would be years into the illness before it affects the CBC

If you are worried about an STD you should have specific testing for each STD of concern

Good luck
