Gonorrhea Test Panel

How we test for Gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea is tested in our highly rated CLIA certified labs through the Nucleic Acid Amplification test (NAAT) performed on an optimal specimen of urine collected from the infected person. This is recommended by our doctors as the most convenient and accurate way of diagnosing the Neisseria Gonorrhoeae bacteria in both women and men. No undressing is required and tests are normally completed within a few minutes.

How is Gonorrhea tested, is it a blood or urine test?

Gonorrhea is tested using a urine sample from you, no swabbing or undressing is required for this test.

How can I prepare for this test?

Do not urinate for one hour before the test and drink water before leaving for the lab. It is not necessary but recommended.

When should one get tested for Gonorrhea?

The only way for one to find out if they have Gonorrhea is by getting tested. The average incubation period for Gonorrhea is around two to five days. However, sometimes the symptoms may not show up until after a week. For accurate results, a test should be taken at least two weeks after exposure. Testing before this period can lead to false-negative results where a Gonorrhea test gives negative results in the presence of an infection. If one gets negative results but suspects having had exposure, another test should be taken after six weeks after the incubation period has passed. Individuals who have been under treatment for Gonorrhea should also retest after two or three weeks to ensure they are clear of the Neisseria Gonorrhoeae bacteria.

One should test for Gonorrhea if they received treatment for other STDs such as HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, and Herpes in the past few months or a year. The reason for this is that such infections weaken the body's immune system leaving one vulnerable to other STDs such as Gonorrhea. A complete blood screening for all the sexually transmitted diseases is necessary in this situation.

Who should get tested for gonorrhea?

Anyone can get infected with Gonorrhea after exposure to the bacteria. The infection can be asymptomatic where there are no symptoms experienced after initial exposure. For this reason, anyone who believes they have been exposed to the bacteria should get tested not until after two weeks. Also, the chances of infection are increased in people who have had unprotected sex, have multiple sex partners or new sex partners and in men who have sex with men. Individuals who have other STDs such as HIV are also at a higher risk of infection. A person who engages in such high-risk behavior should get tested for Gonorrhea and even other STDs.

What do the results mean?

Gonorrhea test results can be either positive or negative. A positive result indicates the presence of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae in the blood hence a Gonorrhea infection. On the other hand, a negative test means absence of the infection. However, a false-negative result is possible if one is tested too early to be able to detect the bacteria in the blood. One should test again after six weeks of getting negative test results in order to confirm a false-negative.

Is Gonorrhea curable?

All sexually transmitted diseases cannot be cured, but Gonorrhea is not one of them. The problem is that many people who have contracted the disease across the United States do not report that they have it. It is not always that these people do not want to tell a doctor about it. In fact, according to experts, in almost half the cases there are no symptoms of Gonorrhea. This is why there are plenty of people right now who are going about their daily lives undiagnosed, and the disease gets worse as time goes by.

Knowing your STD status is a critical step to stopping STD transmission. If you know you are infected you can take steps to protect yourself and your partners. And don’t forget to tell your partner to ask a healthcare provider about STD testing as well.
