Question about lab testing

I have to get my blood drawn this week, the question is could I get tested for STDs/HIV as well at the same time? I'm pretty sure I don't have it but I just want to be safe. Or would I need two different blood samples?

Where I'm from I think you have to get a referral from a doctor (more likely your gp) because you can't request your own blood tests. But if you're only interested in HIV testing than I would reccomend going to a non-profit organization in your area because the results will be private. Whereas if you had requested it from your gp then it would be on your permanent medical records. Hope I helped.
