Customer Question

hi there

i had unprotected oral sex and 4days later i got a test for both chlamydia and gonnorhea. Both tests were negative.
I had no symptoms at the time, about a month ago, and still have no symptoms.
I am just checking that 4days after is sufficient time to have a test...

This was a bit early. Incubation period of gonorrhea is up to two weeks and for chlamydia is three weeks. So a test around end of two or three week would be more appropriate.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
