Never believe a liar, ask for paper proof from the doc that the tests were done and is "clean".
My yearly OBGYN visit does not routinely include STD testing.
The only STD testing that might be included is for HPV virus since that is collected using same method as pap-smear.
gonorrhea, syphyllis, HIV, and other STD testing? nope, has never been included in my yearly visit.
Ask her to see the written results. Those would show the exact tests that were performed.
I should add that I remember, for myself, they did test for chlamydia when I turned 25 as part of my annual exam. And they test for hpv typically when you turn 30.
Hope that helps.

She's lying. Unless her doctor is working in the porn industry, NO doctor routinely tests for these diseases.

Even if you live in an area where there are high incidents of certain STD's those are usually the only ones they test for in addition to the traditional PAP, for example some of the younger GYN's in my area test all paps for HPV, it's fairly prevlent, and the problems it causes down the road are significant.
Other STD's, Hepatitis, and HIV primarily can only be tested for by a blood draw, if she didn't get stuck she hasn't been tested. Ask her to contact the Dr for a comprehensive tests that he/she performed at the last visit. In the meantime, make an appt to see your dr, and get yourself tested.
Seriously, by the time you start having issues with hepatitis, damage has been done to your liver. Whereas if you are tested for it, and diagnosed early treatment, and cure can be good with minimal damage.
You have to ask for a full STD panel. The only thing they "routinely" test for during an annual pap smear is HPV.
There is still:
This will require vaginal swabs, blood tests and possibly a urine test.

Another proof that if it doesn't sound right, it probably isn't.
