Who should take the test?
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are often referred to as co-occurring infections since individuals commonly contract both simultaneously. This underlines the importance of conducting joint testing for these two bacterial sexually transmitted diseases.
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 fertility.
Gonorrhea is a highly prevalent sexually transmitted disease, particularly among individuals aged 15 to 24. It can lead to infections in the genital, rectal, and throat regions. When left untreated, gonorrhea can give rise to complications that may lead to infertility. Additionally, there is a notable incidence of co-infection with chlamydia trachomatis, along with an elevated susceptibility to contracting 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?
Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.
Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
