Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Test
Is this a Blood Test or a Urine Test?
The chlamydia and gonorrhea test is a urine test. When you get to the lab, you’ll simply urinate into a cup. Again, there’s no need to get undressed or have any uncomfortable swabbing.
Will I Need to Fast or Prepare for the Test?
For accurate results, please do not urinate for at least an hour before you go to the testing center. You won’t need to fast.
What Will the Results Tell Me?
Chlamydia test results are either positive or negative. Positive means the test found chlamydia. Negative means the test did not find any signs of chlamydia.
Gonorrhea test results are also either positive or negative. Positive means the test found gonorrhea. Negative means the test did not find any signs of gonorrhea.
For both tests, it’s possible to get tested too early after being exposed. Wait to get tested for at least 7-10 days after a possible exposure for the most accurate test result.
Are Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Curable?
Yes, chlamydia and gonorrhea can be cured with antibiotics. Our doctors will decide which treatment option is best for you and, if appropriate, will electronically send a prescription to your local pharmacy.
Who Should Be Tested for Chlamydia?
Chlamydia affects both men and women. With more than 2.8 million new infections a year, chlamydia spreads easily. Plus, it’s common to have chlamydia without having any symptoms. The only way to know is to get tested. The CDC recommends chlamydia testing for all sexually active women ages 25 and under and for women who have a new sex partner or multiple partners. Consider chlamydia testing as part of routine STD screening, especially if you have had unprotected sex with someone whose STD status you do not know or are concerned about.
Who Should Be Tested for Gonorrhea?
Gonorrhea affects both men and women. With more than 700,000 new infections a year, gonorrhea spreads easily. Plus, it’s common to have gonorrhea without having any symptoms. The only way to know is to get tested. Consider gonorrhea testing as part of routine STD screening, especially if you have had unprotected sex with someone whose STD status you do not know or are concerned about.
When is the Right Time to Get a Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Test?
For routine STD testing to know your sexual health status, test today.
The right time to get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea is at least 7-10 days after a possible exposure. That means, if you think you may have gotten chlamydia or gonorrhea from a partner, wait a week and a half before getting tested. If you have been treated for chlamydia or gonorrhea, you should re-test again in 3 months to rule out re-infection.
For gonorrhea only, due to new research, some experts now recommend testing to confirm cure 3 weeks after treatment. This recommendation applies to men who have sex with men, who are more likely to contract a resistant strain of gonorrhea. (A resistant strain is one that is more difficult to cure with the usual antibiotics.)
If you haven’t been tested for other STDs like HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, gonorrhea or herpes in the last 12 months, our doctors recommend a complete screening. We offer a full 8-test panel that screens for 8 of the most common STDs.
