Confidential Sexual Health Solutions

Preparation for STD tests: 

  • Fasting is NOT required.
  • Urine test is a part of STD screen. Please come to the clinic without voiding urine for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Initial stream of urine (beginning part of urination) is important for STD tests.
  • Initial 10 ml of the urine that washes out the urethra is required.
  • Avoid collecting more than 10 ml. Larger quantity will dilute the sample and may compromise the accuracy of test.
  • Some STDs are tested regionally. For example, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea tested in genitalia will not reveal these infections in throat or rectum.
  •  Relevant sites should be tested independently based on the nature of the exposure.
