Our CLIA-certified testing centers use the Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAA) test, the most accurate gonorrhea test available, to look for the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. Because the test uses a small urine sample, there is no uncomfortable swabbing or undressing.
All laboratory testing, including STD tests, accuracy rates are measured in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Our FDA-approved gonorrhea test has a sensitivity rate of 99.8% and a specificity of 99.3%.
Our NAA gonorrhea test is a urine test. When you arrive at the testing center, the lab technician will collect a small sample for testing.
Do not urinate at least one hour prior to arriving at the testing center. No other preparation is needed.
Everyone's body reacts differently to the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria, so there is no exact incubation time. It is recommended to wait at least 2 to 6 days after exposure to the disease before testing. This allows the bacteria to fully develop for easier, more accurate detection. If you are treated for gonorrhea, re-testing is recommended two weeks after completion to confirm that you are cured.
If your results are negative, there were no signs of a gonorrhea infection. If your results are positive, the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria was found in your urine. It is possible to test too early after being exposed to the infection. Testing is recommended at least 2 to 6 days after exposure to ensure accurate results.
Gonorrhea is curable and can be treated with antibiotics. If you test positive, our doctors are available for a phone consultation to answer any questions you might have about your test results and available treatments. They can also prescribe medications to treat the gonorrhea infection at their discretion.
If you are sexually active, you are at risk of contracting gonorrhea. Untreated gonorrhea can cause permanent and serious health problems. Symptoms often include discharge and/or burning during urination. If the infection spreads to the blood, it can cause rashes, arthritic-like pain and/or a fever. If you experience these symptoms you and your partner should get tested as soon as possible.
Now is the best time to test for gonorrhea. Know your sexual health status today.
Doctors recommend testing 2-6 days after your exposure to the infection with a follow-up test two weeks after treatment to confirm that you are cured.
If you have not been tested for other STDs like chlamydia, syphilis, HIV-1, HIV-2, hepatitis A, B, and C, and herpes-1 or herpes-2, our doctors recommend taking our all-inclusive 10 Test Panel to make sure you are completely STD-free.
We also offer the chlamydia & gonorrhea test panel. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are known as co-existing infections, meaning that having one infection may put you at risk of having the other.
