When can I be tested for chlamydia gonorrhea?

Both chlamydia and gonorrhea can be tested if 24 hours have passed since the possible infection. This test kit checks for possible genital infections, not the pharynx.

Chlamydia, the most common sexually transmitted disease

Chlamydia is the most commonly reported of all sexually transmitted infections. In addition, it is highly contagious, and it is not uncommon for both men and women to not feel particularly strong symptoms even if they are infected, which is also a factor in the spread of infection. For this reason, if the infection is left unnoticed, not only does the risk of infecting other people increase, but the causative bacteria penetrate deep into the body, including the epididymis in men and the fallopian tubes in women, causing infertility in both men and women.

What is gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is as common as chlamydia, and if a woman is infected, or if the infection is in the throat or vagina, she may not feel any symptoms, but if the urethra is infected in men, there will be severe pain and pus. is characterized by It is highly contagious between all mucous membranes of the body, and if left untreated, it can reach the epididymis in men and fallopian tubes in women, and can cause infertility in both men and women.

For your own and your partner’s safety

Superinfection of both infections

Chlamydia and gonorrhea have similar symptoms and transmission routes (gonorrhea is slightly more severe), and it is not uncommon to be infected at the same time. Therefore, we recommend that you check for both chlamydia and gonorrhea. This is because neglecting either one will lead to exacerbation of the other disease. In addition, infection with these causes inflammation in the mucous membranes, increasing the risk of contracting other sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV.

Early diagnosis and early treatment are important for sexually transmitted diseases

STDs often have similar symptoms. Having one symptom does not mean you have one infection. If you have more than one, treating one will continue to worsen the other. During that time, you are more likely to infect others. If you are concerned about your health and undergoing an examination, it is recommended that you do not limit yourself to one suspected sexually transmitted disease, but to have multiple examinations depending on the situation.
