window period for STD's

I am aware that the "window period" for HIV is 6 weeks, but what about other STD's / STI's ? How soon after being infected will the results show in tests ?

I am sorry. I have just seen your answer to Rose where you recommended blood tests after 10 days. Am I correct in assuming that the window period is 10 days for ALL STI's / STD's except HIV which is 6 weeks ? And hepatitis ? Also 10 days ?
