STI urine test for Chlamydia and Ghonorrea. Both back negative. But only waited 45 mins since last pass of urine, midstream taken. Is result accurate?

In brief: Probably

These tests look for minuscule amounts of the germ DNA that can be found in urine.
It doesn't take a bladder full to find it. Some docs may do a swab of the pee hole to gather a sample but it is labor intensive and not tolerated as well by the patient. It can always be repeated.
