Chlamydia is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia is very common and easily cured.
Gonorrhea is caused by a specific bacteria known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Gonorrhea is common and can be cured.
Each year there are approximately 1.5 million cases of Chlamydia and 350,000 cases of Gonorrhea reported to the CDC; however this may not accurately reflect the total number of infected individuals, as most people with these infections have no symptoms and go untested. These bacterial infections are spread through sexual contact (including vaginal, anal, and oral sex). This test will not be able to tell you the specific site of the infection, but will detect the infection if present.
Pregnant women with an active infection at time of vaginal delivery can spread the infection directly to their children during birth. All sexually active women under age 25 and women over age 25 with risk factors for contracting Chlamydia or Gonorrhea should get tested every year: risk factors include unprotected sex, new sexual partners, or multiple sexual partners. Men at risk for Chlamydia or Gonorrhea should get tested each year, and more often as needed: risk factors include having sex with a partner who has Chlamydia or Gonorrhea, men who have sex with men, unprotected sex, and multiple sex partners.
This test will, with >99% accuracy, tell you whether or not you have been infected with Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. As with all of EverlyWell’s tests, our at-home STD Test is delivered in discreet packaging and taken in the privacy of your own home. Once you return your test sample to our lab and your sample is processed, you’ll be notified via email when your results are ready. You will then be able to access your results through an easy-to-understand report on our secure online platform.
The Chlamydia & Gonorrhea test checks whether or not you test positive for Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. In the event that your test results are abnormal, a board-certified physician in your state will contact you at no additional cost to discuss your particular case and prescribe medication where applicable. We take customer privacy very seriously, and only you will have access to this information. As is the case with all STD testing - whether through EverlyWell or your doctor – we may be required by law to report positive test results to certain state health departments. This is only done to track infection prevalence. In rare cases you may not receive a definitive result because of early infection or inadequate sampling and repeat testing is suggested. Don’t take a chance on your sexual health. Know where you stand with our at-home Chlamydia/Gonorrhea test.
