- Urine Culture
- Antibiotic Sensitivity
- 48 hour results service
The STI Clinic can perform a urine chemistry for you if you have urethral symptoms and all STIs have been ruled out.
If you have a burning sensation or pain when passing urine or if you have any urethral discharge, this test may be appropriate.
DO NOT request this test if you have not had sexually transmitted infections excluded, as the bacterial culture will not reveal any of the classic sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. If you have urethral symptoms then we recommend having a full screen first.
What does the test cover?
The urine chemistry consists of a microscopy and culture. If any organisms are grown on the culture then we will also perform an antibiotic sensitivity so that we are able to recommend the most appropriate antibiotic.
We will report any abnormalities in the urine and recommend a course of action.
How long does it take?
The urine culture takes up to 48 hours to complete.
If you would like a copy of the laboratory report to take to your GP then we will provide this free of charge.
