What does the test include?

This test will identify the presence of the genetic material of Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea bacteria that cause Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea infections in your anus.

If you believe you may have a Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea infection in your throat or genitals, you may want to get the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea by Urine or the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea by Throat Swab.

How long should I wait before getting tested?

If you have symptoms of an infection, you can get tested right away. Otherwise, we suggest that you wait 14 days before getting tested. Waiting until after the 14-day incubation period will ensure that your result is accurate.
