How long to get gc and chlamydia test results?

How long to get gc and chlamydia test results?

Varies: Both tests are usually done by dna analysis and the test can be completed in one day. However the lab may not run the test every day. So it depends on how long it takes the specimen to get to the lab, how often the lab runs the test, and how long it takes your doctor to get in touch with you. Ideally, you should know the day after you provide the sample. ...Read more

Received oral sex. Tested 2 wks after. Chlamydia, GC and ngu neg. returned 1.5 wks later reswabed. 7wbc. Told have slight ngu. Never discharge. Ngu?

Maybe nothing wrong: Oral sex is low risk for all STDsIf "never discharge", why were you retested a second time? Any other symptoms? Entirely healthy men have a few WBC from time to time, i.e. maybe nothing wrong. In any case, for sure you don't have gonorrhea or chlamydia. If you're not in the care of one of UK's excellent NHS GUM clinics, consider doing it now. Good luck. ...Read more

Ngu oral sex. Chlamydia, gc, myco gen neg. 1 swab was 7wbc. wife took doxy & I took aizthrmycin 1g. swabs since <5wbc. Never discharge or pain. Ngu?

Ngu oral sex. Chlamydia, gc, myco gen neg. 1 swab was 7wbc. wife took doxy & I took aizthrmycin 1g. swabs since <5wbc. Never discharge or pain. Ngu?

Unclear treatment: If you and your wife’s tests are all negative indicating no infection then it is unclear to me why antibiotics were given. Doxycycline and Zithromax in those doses are standard treatment for chlamydia yet both of you were negative. Treatment should not be based on WBC alone especially given that you have no symptoms. Clarify the underlying problem trying to be addressed please. ...Read more

How long are specimens good for additional reliable testing? Doctor ordered chlamydia/gc test and 6days later ordered a trich test using same specimen

Preservatives: The lab doing the testing would let your dr. Know if the specimen was outdated. Often, preservatives can be introduced in the specimen as well, making it viable for future testing. If the lab did not have a problem with adding the test, than all is fine. ...Read more

Mild burn tip of penis after peeing. Chlamydia-GC, Urea/Mycoplasma, Urine culture tests clean. Ciproflox didn't help. Symptoms started after oral sex.

Mild burn tip of penis after peeing. Chlamydia-GC, Urea/Mycoplasma, Urine culture tests clean. Ciproflox didn't help. Symptoms started after oral sex.

Not an STD: Without urethral discharge, the chance of any STD is very low. STDs rarely cause such burning etc without discharge. Oral sex is particularly low risk, and virtually zero risk for chlamydia or mycoplasma. Any STD you might have had would have shown up with testing, and that it continued despite ciprofloxacin is additional evidence against infection. Almost certainly nothing serious. Maybe anxiety? ...Read more

Only exposure hand job with lotion. Now have symptoms of prostatitis. Can I pass this to my wife? Chlamydia and gc neg. Is this trich?

No STD, prostatitis: The partly duplicates your other question, which didn't provide these details. There is no way you caught gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, or prostatitis from a hand job. Apparent prostatitis symptoms in this situation almost always are just anxiety over a regretted sexual decision, causing pelvic pain. You caught nothing from this event that can harm your wife. Period, full stop, no exceptions. ...Read more
