Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Panel

Details

About the Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Panel

This test screens for two common STDs, chlamydia and gonorrhea. The CDC recommends annual testing for these infections, with or without symptoms. Left untreated, chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead to serious reproductive problems including infertility.

Symptoms of chlamydia and gonorrhea may include the following:

  • Abnormal penile or vaginal discharge
  • Pain with urination
  • Pain during sex
  • Genital discomfort
  • Lower abdominal or back pain (women)
  • Irregular menstrual cycles (women)
  • Swollen testicles (men)

Because those who are infected do not always show symptoms, gonorrhea and chlamydia testing is the only way to diagnose these STDs.

Why Do I Need It?

If there is a possibility you have been exposed, do not wait for symptoms to appear. Many people never experience noticeable symptoms when infected and they can be tested simultaneously with one sample. Dual testing is recommended since both STDs can cause similar symptoms.

If you are concerned about a specific exposure to chlamydia or gonorrhea, there is a chance you may have been exposed to the other STD as well.

Understanding Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Test Results

Results for these tests are either positive or negative. If your results are positive, contact your doctor or gynecologist immediately for treatment and inform any partners who also may have been exposed.

Negative results indicate that you are not infected with either STD.
