Chlamydia+Gonorrhoea Combination Test
Is this test right for me?
is better value than being tested for either of Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea individually.
It is our most popular test and is usually used by people who simply want to exclude
the possibility that they have either of the two most common sexually transmitted
infections. If you have any symptoms of an infections (pain, redness, burning sensation
when you pass urine or discharge) then we recommend a full STI screen so that we
can correctly identify the root cause.
How It Works
The STI Clinic enables you to purchase a sample kit which you use and post back to our laboratory
where your sample is tested and analysed. If your test turns out to be positive, we will provide
you with medication.
Is this test accurate?
The Chlamydia and Gonorrhea combination test that we supply
is laboratory-based and is likely to be the same sort of test that you would get
if you went to see your own doctor. The test is conducted by TDL Pathology – one
of the UK's leading pathology labs – so you can rest assured that you are in safe
What if I test positive?
We are prepared to treat patients who test positive
for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia using an appropriate antibiotic – this is sent to you
by overnight courier after your test results are known.
How long does it take?
We will send the kit out to you as soon as you place your order. If the order is received
before 5.00 pm Monday to Friday then it will be sent that day and should arrive
the next morning. As soon as we receive your sample back at the lab it will
then take around 24 hours for your results to be known. Your medication (should
it be required) will be sent for next day delivery.
How long should I wait to be tested?
It is unlikely that any infection will show up in a test less than 14 days from the
point of infection. You can get tested at any point but if you are being tested after
a perceived risky event and you do not wait 2 weeks and the result is negative, we
will recommend a retest using a new sample.
