Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea
It is very easy to test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea and current tests are highly sensitive. Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea can be present in the urethra, vagina, rectum and throat and we can test from all these sites. Both Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea are very infectious and can be transmitted without having full penetrative sex even if condoms are used. It can take up to 2 weeks after sexual contact for a test to pick up these infections therefore it may be neccessary to repeat the tests to cover any window periods. We advise to screen regularly, particularly after any partner changes.
