Recommend what test should one take for gonorrhea.
Hello, Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria. It is passed from person to person through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex. My girlfriend noticed the increased discharge from the vagina, and pain or a burning sensation when peeing, which are the symptoms of gonorrhea. What test do we need to take to diagnose gonorrhea?
@faust Hello, the increased discharge from the vagina and pain or a burning sensation when peeing could be the symptoms of UTIs, Bacterial vaginosis, or yeast infection. If you think you have gonorrhea you should make an appointment with your GP or local sexual health services. The tests for gonorrhea are simple and painless. It involves a swab from the area thought to be infected to a lab for analysis. In most cases, you don’t have to be examined by a doctor or nurse and can often collect the sample yourself. In some cases, you will have to wait up to 2 weeks to get the results.
