Product Information

Three reasons to choose the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea Throat Swab test

  • This test is for men and women who have given oral sex

  • This self-swab throat sample provides accurate and reliable results quickly

  • We will help you get the right medication if you test positive

Who is the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea Throat Swab for?

This swab test is designed for men and women who have given oral sex and are worried that they may have either a Chlamydia and/or Gonorrhoea infection in their mouth or throat.

If you think you may have a Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea infection in your rectum or your genitals, you will want the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea by Urine or the Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea by Rectal or Vaginal Swab.

What does this test include?

By booking this chlamydia and gonorrhoea throat swab test you will also gain access to: a private consultation and in person sample collection guidance, flexible booking options to suit your schedule, expert sample analysis from our accredited partner laboratories, fast result turnaround and further consultations with the Better2Know specialists should you test positive.

How long should I wait before getting tested?

If you have any symptoms related to a chlamydia or gonorrhoea infection you should get tested as soon as possible. If you have no symptoms but are worried about an infection, you will need to wait until after the 14-day incubation period to allow for the bacteria to be detectable. This will ensure accurate results.

How do I book an appointment?

You can start the booking process by clicking the “Book Your Appointment” button and following the steps presented. You will be asked to select an STI clinic near you, along with a date and time for your appointment.

What can I expect at the appointment?

When you get to the clinic for your appointment, a Better2Know doctor or nurse will give you guidance on how to swab the back of your mouth and throat to collect the necessary sample for testing. When you have collected your sample, your doctor or nurse will prepare it to be sent to the laboratory straight away.

What happens to my sample?

Once you have collected your sample, we will send it to our certified laboratory for testing. It will take from two days for the results to be available after the laboratory receives your sample.

How will I receive my test results?

We will notify you when your results come in, through your choice of phone, email, or text message. You can access your test results on your secure online Patient Area when they are ready.

What if I test positive?

If you test positive for a Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea infection in your throat, your Better2Know doctor will assist you in obtaining medication to treat the infection. If you feel like you need to talk to someone about your results, you can call our 24/7 team of advisors who can answer any questions or organise further consultations or counselling if you want.
