What should I know about the gonorrhea test?

What will happen when I get tested for gonorrhea?

Getting tested for gonorrhea requires a small urine sample. The NAA test examines the amplification of the DNA found in Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. When you visit one of our testing centers, only a small amount of urine will be needed. No uncomfortable swabbing or undressing is necessary. This test is recommended by the CDC for its accuracy and sensitivity to the virus.

How to read your gonorrhea test results

Gonorrhea test results from STDcheck are either negative or positive. A negative result indicates that you are not infected with the bacterial infection or that you tested too early. If your results are positive, you have an active gonorrhea infection. Gonorrhea can be treated and cured with antibiotics. Our doctors recommend getting tested again before engaging in any sexual activity to be sure that the infection has been completely cleared and to avoid re-infection.

What to do if gonorrhea symptoms persist even after treatment.

If you have been treated for gonorrhea but symptoms still persist, it is likely that re-infection occurred or that you may need stronger treatment, since some strains of the gonorrhea bacteria have developed resistance to some common antibiotics. Re-infection is not uncommon with gonorrhea and our doctors recommend retesting after 3 months to make sure the infection has cleared. Seek medical attention to avoid complications due to gonorrhea.
