Bacterial STD Panel (Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis)

This Bacterial STD Panel is designed to identify three common bacterial infections spread by way of sexual contact.

Test Preparation:
Patients should refrain from urinating one hour prior to collection. Female patients should not cleanse the labial area prior to providing the specimen.
Testing Method:
Urine sample

This Bacterial STD Panel is designed to identify three common bacterial infections spread by way of sexual contact. As these infections are generally asymptomatic, it can be nearly impossible to tell if you’ve contracted them. In addition, chlamydia and gonorrhea are known as co-existing infections, which means that exposure to one can put you at an elevated risk of contracting the other. Fortunately, each of these three infections is easily treatable and curable if caught early enough.

Compared to the cost of three individual tests, this Bacterial STD Panel is offered at a discounted rate and covers the following:

How Bacterial STD Panel Tests Work

To schedule an appointment, simply place an order online for your Bacterial STD Panel Test. Then, visit one of our 4,000+ nationwide testing facilities to have your sample collected. A certified staff member will take a small urine sample at which point your job is complete. The process is painless and takes only a few minutes. In fact, most patients are in and out of the facility in under a half-hour. From there, your sample will be processed in a CLIA-certified laboratory and you’ll have complete results available on your online portal regarding your status for chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis.

Common Bacterial STD Symptoms

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are known as co-existing infections, which means that exposure to one can put you at an elevated risk of contracting the other. Symptoms for both are very similar, but can also occur with no symptoms at all.

Common bacterial STD symptoms include:

  • Painful urination
  • Discharge from vagina or penis
  • Or irregular bleeding between periods.

Trichomoniasis is a bacterial STD caused by a parasite. In women, symptoms include foul-smelling vaginal discharge, painful urination and itching of the genitals. In men, there are usually no symptoms, but in some cases, pain during urination or after ejaculation can occur.

How to Interpret Your Results

Once you get results from your Bacterial STD Panel, it might seem overwhelming at first. But take the time to interpret your test results to have a full understanding of your status. The summary for your bacterial STD test will most likely include the name of the test, a ‘result’, ‘reference range’ and ‘flag’.

The ‘result’ indicates reactive, non-reactive, detected, not-detected or a value. If you see a value, this is a numerical measurement that is compared against the reference range to determine if the sample is normal or abnormal.

The ‘flag’ value will indicate whether your test came back normal or abnormal. Normal ranges indicate you are not infected and an abnormal result could mean a possible infection.

Bacterial STD Panel Test vs Twin Panel Test

Chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis are all very common bacterial STDs and all are usually asymptomatic. If you’re concerned about your status of these bacterial STDs, we recommend the more comprehensive Bacterial STD Panel. However, because chlamydia and gonorrhea are comorbid infections (can occur at the same time), the Twin Panel Test might make more sense if you have a suspicion of contraction of either.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis typically show no symptoms, so it’s possible to spread the disease without knowing you have it. Left untreated, chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause permanent damage to women’s reproductive systems and can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. In men, it can lead to scar tissue build-up in the testicles that can lead to infertility. For both men and women, it will leave you at higher risk to contract other STDs such as HIV/AIDs.

    Even if you feel healthy, the infection can still be passed to other sexual partners and increase the risk of other STDs. Therefore, the sooner you get tested, the sooner you can start a treatment regimen and get back on the path to wellness.

  • We aim to deliver full, comprehensive results in a timely manner (usually within 24-72 hours after testing). If you do have questions about your results, however, our care counselors are standing by ready and willing to assist. We can even put you in touch with a physician should you require additional assistance and/or prescription medication.

  • Simply put, at Priority Lab Testing we aim to deliver the most accurate testing results anywhere on the market. We’ve partnered with industry-leading clinical laboratory Quest Diagnostics to ensure that all testing results are clear, comprehensive, and reliable for our patients. Tests are FDA-approved and conducted in CLIA-certified laboratories. Testing centers perform regular quality assurance testing to ensure accurate results time and time again.

  • We offer treatment options for patients who test positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis. If you receive a positive result, simply call and speak with a care counselor to schedule a phone consultation with a physician. Medication can be called into your local pharmacy, and no office visit is needed. We are partnered with physicians at PWNHealth so treatment can be prescribed if appropriate in all states. You must have a positive result before treatment can be authorized. The physician consult fee is $65.

  • It is possible to pass chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis to your baby if you give birth during an active infection—although it is rare to pass trichomoniasis onto a newborn. Luckily, these STDs are curable and can be easily treated before or during pregnancy. If you are pregnant and test positive for a bacterial STD, make sure to get in touch with your doctor to make sure treatment is effective.
