Availability: deliverable immediately
Who should take the test?
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are known as co-existing infections because individuals are frequently infected with both at the same time, which is why it is important to test for both of these sexually transmitted diseases together. Both infections are caused by bacteria.
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States, with about 4 million new cases diagnosed every year and can infect both men and women. Untreated infections can lead to scarring in the reproductive tract that may affect the fertility.
Gonorrhea is a very common sexually transmitted disease, especially among young people ages 15-24 years. It can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. If not treated, gonorrhea is associated with complications that may result in infertility. There is a high prevalence of co-infection with chlamydia trichomatis and an increased susceptibility to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
If you are a sexually active man who is gay, bisexual, or who has sex with men, you should be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea every year.
How does it work?
You collect the urine sample, send it back to us and we will provide you with information about your STD status. If you test positive, you should talk to a doctor about treatment options to avoid passing an infection to a partner.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
After you get tested, it’s important for you to find out the result of your test so that you can talk to a doctor about treatment options if one or several of the tested STDs were detected. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by phone at (703) 722 6067 (08:00am - 11:30am EST) or mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we reserve the right to collaborate with certified partner laboratories.

Chlamydia is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia can be transmitted through sexual contact and generally shows no symptoms. Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States, with about 4 million new cases diagnosed every year. Untreated infections can lead to scarring in the reproductive tract that may affect the fertility.
Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is transmitted through sexual contact and is most commonly asymptomatic in women. Gonorrhea can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. If not treated, gonorrhea is associated with complications that may result in infertility. There is a high prevalence of co-infection with chlamydia and an increased susceptibility to HIV.

Please note the following guidelines regarding the urine collection – the correct collection is important for achieving unaltered laboratory results! Do not urinate for at least 1 hour before collecting your urine specimen. Do not cleanse the genital area. First-catch urine specimens are used to test for STDs. If the urine specimen cannot be transferred immediately, it can be stored at 2°C to 30°C for up to 24 hours.
The solution in the cobas PCR Media transport tube is harmful if swallowed. If the solution contacts your skin or eyes, wash the affected area thouroughly with water. Seek immediate medical attention if swallowed. Keep out of the reach of children.
During the sample collection
1. Wash hands with soap and water. Open the urine collection cup. Be careful not to touch the inside of the container.
2. Collect the first part of the urine into the urine collection cup. Fill the container about 1/3 full.
3. Immediately transfer urine into the transport tube using the provided disposable pipette. Use care to avoid splashing of contents.
4. If urine is spilled on the outside of the tube, it must be cleaned before shipment.
5. It may be necessary to pipette urine from cup to tube more than once in order to achieve the correct fill volume.
6. The correct volume of urine has been added when the fluid level is between the two black lines on the tube label. Do not overfill or underfill.
7. Tightly re-cap the transfer tube to prevent leakage. Invert the tube 5 times to ensure mixing of specimen and reagent.
8. Discard collection cup and pipette and lable the transfer tube.
9. Place tube into biohazard bag with the absorbend pad. Ensure biohazard bag is properly sealed.
10. For shipping, place everything together with the sample dispatch note in the grey plastic envelope.

I take medication. Can this affect the outcome?
That depends on the test you want to carry out and the medications you are taking. In case of doubt, please ask your doctor regarding the areas that are influenced by the medication prescribed by him and do not stop taking your medication without consulting him.
Why should I get tested?
If you are sexually active, it is recommended to get tested at minimum once a year for your own and your partner’s safety and sexual health. Every year in the United States, there are around 19.7 million new STD infections. Without knowing it, many people can have an STD without experiencing symptoms.
Getting tested regularly helps to prevent infection that could harm you if left undiagnosed and untreated. Preventing the spread of STDs is everybody’s responsibility and knowing your status is a way to do your part while also keeping yourself healthy.
How frequently shoud I get tested?
Anyone who is sexually active should get tested for STDs on a regular basis. The frequency of testing is dependent on how active you are and if you are currently outside of a monogamous relationship. The CDC recommends testing every 3-12 months depending on risk category. A yearly STD test is the minimum responsible frequency and testing should be done more if you engage in unprotected sex with a new partner.
Can I get the same STD multiple times?
Even if you have had an STD before, you are not immune. Bacterial STDs can be treated and cured, but can be contracted again upon exposure. Most viral STDs are incurable and will stay in your system for life. However, they can be controlled with proper medication and treatment.
Who will have access to my results?
We take customer privacy very seriously. Only you will have access to your results and we will not share your results with any third party. All samples are disposed of following analysis.
If I test positive for an STD, what should I do?
After you get tested, it’s important for you to find out the result of your test so that you can talk to a doctor about treatment options if one or several of the tested STDs were detected. For bacterial STDs (e.g. Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis) you will want to begin a doctor-prescribed treatment immediately. For viral STDs (e.g. HIV) you will want to figure out with your doctor how to best manage the infection along with its associated symptoms. With proper care and management of the infection, you can still enjoy a long and sexual life.
Is the shipping and packaging discreet?
We understand the importance of being able to test yourself for STDs in the privacy of your own home. Thus, the package you receive will have no identifiable information or visuals.
