As part of medical care, urine testing is fast becoming a thing. These days, urine tests are used to detect several STDs.
Before now, STD testing, particularly bacterial STDs were very uncomfortable, and a lot of people dreaded it. This led to asymptomatic STDs or hidden epidemic. When people are not tested regularly, they can spread STDs to their loved ones without knowing it.
We use urine testing to detect bacterial STDs from chlamydia to gonorrhoea, to Trichomoniasis and others. By using a bacterial DNA testing on the urine sample, it has become easier to diagnose STDs,
Urine testing is completely safe. All you have to do is provide a urine sample which you will collect by yourself and send it to the laboratory. We will then use special tests to identify whether it contains bacterial DNA. There are no contraindications for urine STD testing.
You don’t need any special preparation to do a urine STD test. However, we recommend that before you have this test, you should talk to a doctor to guide you on what STDs you are going to be tested for. We offer medical advice on the most suitable STD test. We also provide additional testing if the need arises.
Getting tested is not only quick and easy, it’s the only way to know for sure
if you do or do not have an STD.
You will be asked to pee into a sample collection cup or tube. That tube will be collected by a doctor. Your urine sample is then taken to the laboratory for testing. You get to leave as soon as you’re done giving the sample.
We have very good laboratories and one of the best lab scientists that can perform your urine test. These laboratories are well equipped to meet standard procedure.
Urine STD Tests usually takes a while and can be from 5-7 days for the results to be out. If you are infected, then your results will come out positive and should be treated. A negative test result means there was no evidence that you were infected with that STD at the time of the test.
We do advise that even with a negative test, you should undergo regular STD testing if you are sexually active and not in a mutually monogamous relationship.
Urine STD testing is not a one-time thing. It is possible you might get infected in your next sexual encounter. Urine STD testing has proven to be consistently effective and does a pretty job of detecting infected individuals.
HPV is another STD that can be diagnosed using urine tests. Urine test is good enough in most circumstances.
