At-home test to detect two common sexually transmitted infections affecting men that are usually symptomless and require yearly screening. When left undetected or untreated, STIs like Chlamydia & Gonorrhea can lead to infertility, HIV, and more
This test screens for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, which are common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) affecting sexually active men. This test helps to rule out Chlamydia & Gonorrhea infections in the genital and urinary tract by using real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technology before the onset of severe health complications
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis, common among young sexually active individuals between 15-24 years of age. It spreads through vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected individual and often shows no symptoms. Undetected or untreated Chlamydia can lead to fever, pelvic pain, and increased risk of infertility as well as HIV. However, it is curable if detected at an initial stage.
Gonorrhea is also prevalent among young sexually active individuals between 15-24 years of age. It is a bacterial infection caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae and targets your throat, genitals, and rectum. Like most STDs, it spreads through sexual contact with an infected individual. If not treated on time, it can lead to epididymitis, with an increased risk of infertility and HIV.
World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that globally more than 1 Million people get Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) every day. And this number goes up to 374 million/year for bacterial infections like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea
Chlamydia & Gonorrhea Are Common
STDs often show no noticeable symptoms and go undetected or untreated.
In fact, 10-50% of men never know that they have Gonorrhea or Chlamydia!
In such a scenario, the only way to rule out the possibility of an STI is through regular screening.
CDC recommends every sexually active man undergo a screening test for STDs once a year. Men with multiple sex partners should get tested as often as 3-6 months.
Decode Your Symptoms
The majority of symptoms in males infected with Chlamydia & Gonorrhea never appear. But when they show up, these symptoms can be difficult to comprehend.
Therefore, a screening test can help you get definite answers about your sexual health & well-being, especially if you are experiencing:
- Painful urination
- Painful or swollen testicles
- Discharge from the penise
- Burning or itching around the penis opening
- Swelling and redness around the penile opening
- Sore throat
Chlamydia & Gonorrhea are curable when detected on time. But if neglected, the resulting consequences are far worse than their symptoms!
When not detected and treated on time, bacterial STIs can directly impact your sexual and reproductive health, causing:
- Scarring of the urethra
- Chronic pelvic pain.
- Inflammation of the tube that holds testicles in men
This at-home self-collection test offers insights into your sexual health & well-being by helping you to understand whether you have been infected with bacterial STIs like Chlamydia & Gonorrhea
A negative test indicates no infection at the time of the test. However, it is crucial to ensure your sexual well-being no matter how healthy you feel and take the test yearly as recommended by CDC. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are curable when detected on time, making regular screening a must!
A positive test indicates the presence of active Chlamydia or Gonorrhea infection. These bacterial STIs are curable with timely treatment. If left untreated, these infections can lead to various health issues such as infertility, HIV and more.
