    Chlamydia and gonorrhoea are the two most common sexually transmitted diseases. Both of these diseases are caused by bacteria and can be transmitted through vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse with an infected partner.

    The two different bacterial pathogens infect the urethra, anus, or throat through sexual contact. Once inside these organs, they can attach to the host tissue and cause an inflammatory response.

    Specifications of Chlamydia Tracomatis and Neisseria Gonorrhoeae PCR Qualitative Test

    People with chlamydia experience their first symptoms within a few weeks of contracting the infection. With gonorrhoea, there's no surety of when the symptoms will occur. Often, there are no symptoms at all.

    These sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are common in both women and men. However, more cases in women are reported. The infection rates are highest amongst women within the age groups of 15 to 24. 

    Healthcare professionals recommend that all sexually active women and men get themselves tested regularly every year to reduce the risk factors. Having sexual activities with multiple people without contraception can result in the transmission of these diseases. 

    Chlamydia Tracomatis and Neisseria Gonorrhoeae PCR Qualitative test can help you identify your risk of contracting the disease. 

    The treatment of these STIs is easily curable. Since it is a bacterial infection, your doctor will probably prescribe you only antibiotics. With the right prescription, you can recover quickly. 

    However, you need to carefully follow the dosage prescribed by your healthcare provider to ensure that the infection clears up entirely. The medications can take up to two weeks to work, and you will start to recover simultaneously.

    It is advisable not to have sexual intercourse during the treatment period. If you do involve in sexual activity, it will still be possible to transmit and contract the STIs again. 

    If left untreated, there can be damage to the uterus, cervix, and ovaries in women and cause inflammation and pain in the epididymis and prostate glands in men.

    Why Should You Get Tested?

    Contracting sexually transmitted diseases is common and can also be cured with a precise following of the medication dosage. However, for the treatment to begin at the early stages of contraction, you need to get yourself tested and diagnosed regularly. 

    Leaving it untreated can lead to unnecessary complications and severe damage to your organs and body parts.
