What Can I Expect from a Gonorrhea Test?

Q: My partner just told me that he was diagnosed with gonorrhea. I need to be screened as soon as possible. Can you tell me what to expect with a gonorrhea test? I’m a little bit frightened and I’ve never been screened for STDs before now.

A: Since your partner has gonorrhea, it is definitely a good idea for you to seek testing. Gonorrhea is extremely common and easy to contract – fortunately it is also easy to treat. The testing process is actually pretty simple.

The first step is to contact us and arrange an appointment for testing. You will be directed to one of our discreet laboratories for testing. There will be no questionnaires or other probing paperwork to fill out. We respect your privacy and work hard to protect it. You will not have to worry about any invasive procedures. Our gonorrhea testing is completed with a urine sample and you will have your results within 1-3 business days.
