  • Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia testing

    Understand these are tested for using urine test.

    What if I have the infection at some other part of my body other than the genitals? Will this still be picked up using a urine test?

    Can the urine test return a false negative result in that case since there is no bacteria in my urine, but the G & C bacteria is somewhere else in my body?

    There are various tests available for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. We use the NAAT (nucleic acid amplification testing) method, which is highly reliable.
    The result will be site specific - meaning a urine test will not be reflective of whether one has Chlamydia in the throat or rectum.
    Depending on the sexual exposures of concern, we may advise you on different anatomical sites to test.

    Rapid STD/HIV Test in Singapore. Rapid HIV & STD Testing results in 20min and Chlamydia Gonorrhoea PCR Test result next day. Rapid STD Screening available too.
