Package test for Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia and Trichomonas vaginalis from one sample site.

  1. Chlamydia. According to the CDC, chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial STD in the U.S. In 2014, roughly 1.4 million cases of chlamydia represented the highest number of annual cases of any condition ever reported to the CDC. Infection is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis and is often called “the silent epidemic” because infections are common yet many people do not realize that they are infected. It is easily cured with antibiotics but can have serious health consequences if left untreated, including PID.
  2. Gonorrhoea. Neisseria gonorrhoeae causes bacterial STD gonorrhoea. It may not cause symptoms, especially in women, but can lead to PID, infertility, and other complications if not treated with antibiotics.
  3. Trichomonas vaginalis – to diagnose an infection with the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis, which causes the sexually transmitted disease trichomoniasis.

The test is looking for evidence of the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the United Kingdom, the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which causes the STD gonorrhoea, and the bacterium Trichomonas vaginalis, a sexually transmitted, microscopic parasite that causes vaginal infections in women and urethritis in some men.

These STDs are easily treated but can cause severe reproductive and health problems if left untreated.

1-4 weeks, up to 6 weeks. Many patients are asymptomatic carriers.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

Please tell your doctor or healthcare professional about the use of antibiotics or, for women, douches or vaginal creams within 24 hours before testing vaginal samples, as they may affect test results. For a urine sample, you may be instructed to wait for one to two hours after you last urinated before collecting a urine sample. Follow any instructions you are given.

The swab could be taken from throat, urethra and rectum (the price shown is for one spot only).

A doctor may request the test if you have symptoms such as (for women) a yellow or bloody vaginal discharge, bleeding associated with vaginal intercourse, or burning/painful urination; or (for men) pus discharging from the penis or a burning sensation during urination.

However, about 70% of infected women and 50% of infected men show no active symptoms, but can still infect a sexual partner without knowing. Risk factors for Chlamydia infection include age under 25 years, having new or multiple sexual partners, having sex with someone who has other partners, and not using barrier contraceptives such as condoms. You may wish, or your doctor may suggest, that you be screened for the infection if you have any these risk factors.

A positive test indicates an active infection that requires treatment with a course of antibiotics.
