Get Tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea

Comprehensive Guide to Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Testing


Chlamydia and gonorrhea are sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that can be contracted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. If left untreated, these infections can lead to serious health complications, and pregnant women can transmit them to their babies during childbirth. STDs are also known as sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

How Do I Know If I Have an STD? Getting tested is the only way to determine if you have an STD since most infected individuals don’t exhibit symptoms. If you’ve had sexual contact with someone who has an STD, it’s crucial to consult with a doctor or nurse.

Is There a Cure for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea? Yes, chlamydia and gonorrhea can be cured with appropriate treatment. Early treatment is essential to prevent complications, such as fertility issues. Informing your sexual partners about your diagnosis allows them to seek treatment and helps prevent reinfection.

Who Needs Testing? The recommendations for chlamydia and gonorrhea testing are similar for women and men:

  • Women under 25 who are sexually active should get tested annually.
  • Women over 25 should get tested annually if at increased risk (multiple sex partners, new partner, or partner with an STD).
  • Men should consult a doctor to determine if they need testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or other STDs.

Signs of Chlamydia or Gonorrhea: Many infected individuals may not show any signs or symptoms. When symptoms occur, they can include:

For Women:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Painful or burning sensation during urination
  • Bleeding between periods

For Men:

  • Abnormal penile discharge
  • Painful or burning sensation during urination
  • Less commonly, painful or swollen testicles

What to Expect during Testing: Doctors or nurses can easily and painlessly test for chlamydia and gonorrhea by collecting a urine sample or samples from the vagina, penis, rectum, or throat. Testing is quick and straightforward.
