How does the test for anal gonorrhea and chlamydia work?

Our test kit for anal infections makes it easy for you to check your sexual health status without having to visit a GUM clinic or GP. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are sexually transmitted diseases which can be passed on during anal sex and cause an infection in the anus. Standard STI testing usually consists of a urine sample or vaginal swab, neither of which are suitable for detecting an anal infection.

The rectal swab test is recommended for anyone who has had unprotected anal sex with a partner who may have chlamydia or gonorrhea. Your test kit should arrive 5 to 7 days after you place your order. To get tested, you will use a swab to collect a sample from your rectum. The test kit includes a pre-addressed and pre-paid envelope for posting your sample to our partner laboratory. It will take the laboratory 1 - 3 working days to analyse your sample and provide your test results, which you will be able to view when you log in to your DrEd patient record. We will notify you via email when your results are available to view.

Anal Gonorrhea

Anal gonorrhea occurs when the bacteria which cause gonorrhea are passed on during anal sex. In rare cases, the bacteria may also travel to the anus after an infection of the penis or vagina. In many cases, the infection does not cause any noticeable symptoms. As a result, many people who are infected continue to have unprotected sex, unaware that they are passing on the disease. Gonorrhea is treated with an injection of Ceftriaxone and azithromycin tablets.

Anal Chlamydia

While most people are aware that they can catch STIs during unprotected sex, many wrongly assume that this does not apply to anal sex. However, anal chlamydia is very common and it often goes undiagnosed. A study by the sexual health clinic at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital found that 8% of the men who have sex with men attending the clinic for STI testing had anal chlamydia. 69% of the men whose test results came back positive had not experienced any symptoms.

It is important to get diagnosed and treated as soon after infection as possible. Chlamydia does not only cause complications, it also increases your risk of being infected with other STIs, such as HIV. 38% of the men who had a positive test result for anal chlamydia were also diagnosed with HIV.

Although anal chlamydia often remains symptomless, it can cause symptoms such as:

  • diarrhoea
  • swelling
  • bleeding or discharge
  • rectal pain

If you have had unprotected anal sex, you should get tested for STI infections in the anus. It is also advisable that you get tested for HIV.
