In brief: Two to four days

A swab is taken from the urethra (the hole where your pee comes out), or other suspected area, and a culture/naat/dna probe is performed on the specimen.
It takes about 48 hrs to get a result. If it's positive you need antibiotics to get better and so does your sexual partner.
