The Purpose of the Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Urine Test
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States. Unfortunately, they’re also two of the most common STDs people can get without showing any symptoms. That means without regular monitoring, these diseases can lead to chronic infections that, if left untreated, can cause health problems like pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility in women, and a potentially life-threatening disseminated gonococcal infection in men. The urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia helps identify these sexually transmitted diseases early, allowing for timely treatment and prevention of potential complications. When you order this test from Personalabs, you get the convenience and privacy you want when monitoring for STDs.
What Does the Urine Test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Measure?
This test uses nucleic acid amplification (NAA) to assess your urine sample for the DNA or RNA of the bacteria that cause gonorrhea or chlamydia.
Who Should Take a Chlamydia/Gonorrhea Urine Test?
The chlamydia gonorrhea urine test is recommended for individuals who are sexually active, especially those who have engaged in unprotected sex or have multiple sexual partners. It is an essential screening tool for sexually active individuals, both men and women, to identify and diagnose chlamydia and gonorrhea infections. Men and women should be tested regularly if they practice unprotected sex with multiple partners. If you notice anything unusual related to your sexual health, such as irregular penile or vaginal discharge or pain, you should also get STD testing.
Gonorrhea/Chlamydia Urine Test Preparation
You don’t need to follow special preparation instructions before the urine test for chlamydia and gonorrhea. Follow the lab’s instructions for collecting a clean urine sample.
