Probably not: It is possible that the negative urine test may not be accurate and it seems doubtful that if either chlamydial or gonorrheal microorganisms were introduced into your vagina "in 5-10 secs" , they would be detectable in your urine as quickly as you describe. A sample obtained from your vagina or cervix may be more reliable.
