Testing for gonorrhea, sometimes called the Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAA) Test, is a pain-free urine test. Gonorrhea is often asymptomatic, meaning that an infected person sometimes shows no symptoms. It is also one of the most common STD’s, so it is important to get tested if you are sexually active. Gonorrhea is a treatable STD, but only if you know you are infected. Stress Free offers treatment and free consultation if your test returns a positive result. The minimum required wait for gonorrhea testing is 72 hours from exposure. If you feel like you should get tested or want to find out more information, call a care counselor today at 1-888-978-3435.
Gonorrhea Testing Information
How is gonorrhea contracted?
All forms of sexual contact can facilitate the transmission of gonorrhea, including oral, vaginal and anal sex. The infection is transmissible without full penetration. It is important to always practice safe sex through regular condom usage.
How do you test for gonorrhea?
A simple urine sample is all that is needed to test for gonorrhea. There are no painful swabs or blood testing required.
Is gonorrhea treatable?
Gonorrhea is easily treatable with a course of antibiotics. It is important to ensure you abstain from sex of any kind until your course of treatment is complete. We recommend your partner(s) be tested and treated as well before resuming your sexual relationship.
What happens if the infection goes untreated?
When left untreated, gonorrhea can have many negative effects on your health. It can lead to painful urination, inflammation of the prostate, and even infertility in both men and women. That is why early detection and treatment are so important for your health.
