Hello and excellent question. It is possible to get tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, trichomonas, via a urine test, but they have to be looked for specifically.
These would not show up on a normal urine test for say a urinary tract infection, but will show up if the test is ordered.
I hope this answers your question, if not, please let me know. Best wishes...
Please ask if you need clarification/more information.

Hello again, in short, yes. These are the tests that can be run on a urine at the facilities where I have worked and that I am aware. Some variation may happen between facilities, but it's possible to identify all of these in the urine.
If you have questions about a specific one std, please feel free to ask, best wishes...
Well, tricky question. The research is indicating that it can, and the sensitivity is strong, however that one is probably going to depend on the facility. The gold standard is generally the pap smear to identify HPV but I think that in the near future this will change to use the urine, as it's obviously much easier.
