The 4U Health Essential STD/STI Test detects the presence of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis in urine. Our tested uses polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to deliver highly accurate results with a quick turnaround.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a laboratory technique used to amplify a specific DNA sequence in a sample. It is a very sensitive and specific method for detecting and analyzing DNA. This method is useful for detecting infections that may not be detectable by other methods, such as infections that are present in small amounts or hidden within cells.

What is Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It is one of the most common STIs in the world and can affect both men and women. Chlamydia is transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, oral, and anal sex. It can also be transmitted from a mother to her baby during childbirth. Most people with chlamydia do not experience any symptoms, but if left untreated, it can lead to serious health problems, such as infertility and pelvic inflammatory disease. Chlamydia is usually treated with antibiotics, and it is important to get tested and treated if you are sexually active or have had unprotected sex with a new or casual partner. Using condoms and other forms of protection can help reduce the risk of chlamydia and other STIs.
