This combined test offers you better value than being tested for either of Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea individually. This will exclude the possibility of the two most common sexually transmitted infections. Both the tests require a small urine sample.
Chlamydia and gonorrhoea are known as co-existing infections because individuals are frequently infected with both at the same time, which is why it is important to test for both of these STDs together.
It is impossible to know the underlying cause of your symptoms without being tested. Do not attempt to guess which bacteria is present as many produce similar symptoms.
Chlamydia is a very common sexually transmitted infection, it can cause serious health issues if left untreated. It is easily treated with the antibiotics.
At times it is completely symptomless, which means that people can have chlamydia without realising it. It can lead to infertility in women if not treated.
Like chlamydia, gonorrhoea is also common and easy to treat with an antibiotic. Like chlamydia, gonorrhoea often doesn’t show visible symptoms.
In the case of men, the most common symptom is pain during urination and sometimes discharge from the tip of the penis.
Women may find it even more difficult to notice the symptoms, but they can also experience pain when urinating and vaginal discharge.
If gonorrhoea is left untreated it can lead to serious complications with the reproductive system, including (in women) Pelvic Inflammatory Disease.
