Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it possible to test for Gonorrhoea?

    Gonorrhoea is transmitted through unprotected sex. It can be transmitted through vaginal, anal or oral sex. Additionally, it can be transmitted from a mother to a child during childbirth.

    Gonorrhoea often causes symptoms such as discomfort during urination and discharge from the penis or vagina. In women, it can also cause vaginal bleeding at times other than during a period. However, Gonorrhoea can be symptomless – estimates are that 10% of males and 50% with Gonorrhoea experience no symptoms.

    We provide Gonorrhoea test kits. This test identifies the Gonorrhoea bacteria that cause the disease. The test can also confirm if treatment has been successful in combating the disease. This test will only detect Gonorrhoea, it cannot check for any other diseases.

  • How does the testing process work?

    The test kit will be sent by post. It should arrive in just a day. The test involves providing a urine sample which you will send back to us in a prepaid envelope.

  • What if the test result is positive?

    Under most circumstances, we are able to send treatment in the form of antibiotics.

  • How long will the testing process take?

    This is one of the fastest Gonorrhoea testing processes available online. The testing kit should arrive a day after ordering, as long as you order before 4pm on weekdays. The kit comes with a prepaid envelope for you to post the sample directly to the laboratory. Results will be available electronically within a few days.

  • Can I be certain that the test is accurate?

    This testing process is used by doctors throughout the country, and TDL Pathology – the laboratory we use to analyse samples, is a leading laboratory in this field.

  • What happens if I leave Gonorrhoea untreated?

    It is always a good idea to treat diseases as soon as possible, as complications can arise over time. Gonorrhoea, if left untreated, can spread through the body and cause infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, and ectopic pregnancy.

  • I think I am at risk of having Gonorrhoea. How long should I wait before getting tested?

    The test will not show Gonorrhoea for seven days after transmission. If you are tested within seven days of a risky incident and the result is negative, we recommend taking another test at a later date to be sure.

  • When should I get tested?

    We recommend getting tested if:

    • You or a sexual partner are showing symptoms of Gonorrhoea
    • You have engaged in unprotected sex with a new partner, or your partner has
    • You have contracted another STI
    • A previous or current sexual partner has an STI
    • A doctor reports either that there is vaginal discharge or that the cells of the cervix are inflamed during a vaginal examination
    • You are or are planning to become pregnant

    Antibiotics is used to treat Gonorrhoea. When taking antibiotics for Gonorrhoea, you should refrain from sexual activity until one week after the course of treatment is finished. It is possible to contract Gonorrhoea again after having it treated. As such, it is important that sexual partners also get tested if you test positive.

    While testing can be done from two days after contraction, the incubation time of Gonorrhoea varies across people. For most accurate results, take the test two weeks after suspected exposure to the disease. You should get retested two weeks after finishing treatment to ensure that all of the bacteria have been removed.

  • What do the test results mean?

    The test result will be positive or negative. A positive result means that you have Gonorrhoea and should seek treatment. A negative result means that there is no infection at the time of testing. If you are at continued risk of infection, you should get tested annually.

    If you do have Gonorrhoea, it is important that sexual partner(s) are also tested.

  • How can I prevent Gonorrhoea?

    Being sexually active always runs the risk of contracting Gonorrhoea. For best chances of avoiding Gonorrhoea and other STIs, abstain from sex outside of monogamous relationships with clean partners, and always use condoms.

  • Once treated, is it possible to contract Gonorrhoea again?

    Treatment will cure the active infection but reinfection is common. It is possible to be infected with Gonorrhoea a further time.

  •   If I have Gonorrhoea, should I tell my partner?

    You should absolutely tell all of your sexual partner(s) so that they can get tested too.

  • Do I need to prepare for the test?

    There is no preparation needed. Eat or drink as normal beforehand.

    If you are already taking antibiotics, it is recommended that you wait for a week after treatment to get tested for Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia, or Syphilis.

  • Are STIs curable?

    Most STIs are curable, particularly if they are detected as early as possible. There are some, such as HIV and herpes, which cannot be cured completely, but they can be managed.

  • Can I contract the same STI multiple times?

    You can. Getting treatment for an STI will not prevent further infections. You should always get tested after a risky event, even if you have previously been treated for an STI. If you do not complete a course of treatment, reinfection is very likely. You can have more than one STI at a time.
