Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea Screening Test for home use

Requires urine sample
  • Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the United Kingdom.
  • Checks for the presence/absence of Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea bacteria found in the urine.
  • Sample sent to laboratory for analysis (self address envelope is included).
  • Kit contains:
    - Urine Sample pot with screw top and label.
    - A plastic postal tube lined with absorbent material.
    - A plastic wallet with a snapper zip and 2 outer pockets.
    - Postage paid envelope.
    - Instructions and Client Information Form (includes customer reference number).
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are well documented bacterial STIs. The highest proportion of people affected are aged between 16-29 years. Symptoms of these diseases may not always be visible and go untreated. Visible symptoms of Gonorrhoea include a creamy discharge from the penis or vagina and pain whilst urinating. In addition women may also experience vaginal discharge that is heavier and more striking than normal, spotting in-between periods, bleeding after sex or pain in the lower abdomen which could be PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). Men may additionally experience irritation at the end of the penis and swollen testicles. However some people do not show symptoms and will pass on the disease if they have unprotected sex again.

An untreated Chlamydia infection may have long term consequences, particularly in women, in which it can develop into Pelvic Inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility. 1 in 3 men with Chlamydia will produce sperm that is genetically damaged if Chlamydia is left untreated.

These diseases are a threat to your health if left untreated. However they can be treated quite easily. This test can be performed quickly and simply. The testing laboratory has an accurate test called the Polymer Chain Reaction that detects the presence of bacteria in the urine. Results will be sent back in the post.

Directions:

Before giving a sample, please note a couple of points:
  • A urine sample that is more than 5 days old is no longer suitable from processing. If you need to store a urine sample, keep it in the fridge (not the freezer). Do not keep it in room temperature for longer than necessary.

  • Note that the test laboratory is not open on a Sunday. (Keep this in mind when sending your sample to avoid delays).

  • Also note that antibiotics may effect results. Avoid taking antibiotics up to 7 days before a sample is given.

    Collecting the sample:
    Leave at least 2 hours from your last urination before you pass urine again for your sample. It is easiest to take a sample first thing in the morning.

    1. Remove the lid of the sample collection bottle (smaller container). Start to urinate in the bottle (make sure to catch the first drops), continuing until the tube is almost full (leave an inch at the top).
    2. Screw on and tighten the lid of the pot, ensuring there are no leaks. Write your details on the outer label (including client reference number and date) and put back into the larger tube surrounded with the absorbent material. Whilst you do this, fill out the client information form too.

  • 3. Ensure the outer pot is firmly closed and put it back into the plastic wallet, snapping the zip shut. Include the client information slip but out this in the outer pocket. (Keep a note of the reference number in case you need to contact the lab).
    4. Place the plastic wallet inside the the per-paid envelope and seal. Now it is ready for posting.

    Results:
    Your results will be sent via the post, not given over the phone.
    There are 4 possible results to each disease you are being tested for. Results will either be positive, negative, unsure (where a new sample will be required) and Out of Protocol (sample was out of date upon arrival). Results should take no longer than 14 days to come back to the patient through the post.
