As much as the CDC promotes dental dams and condoms for oral sex, in our experience, not many people use protection for oral.
This is where experience is helpful. If you have multiple partners and have unprotected oral sex, you should frequently test for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Those tests should include both a urine and a throat swab collection.
In our experience, even most primary care physicians do not recommend throat swabs, assuming that most people do not have oral sex. Gosh, medical school must be more boring than I imagined!
Unfortunately, oral gonorrhea and chlamydia can be asymptomatic, and you can be a spreader without realizing it. Testing is key.
You’ll receive one test kit loaded with the options you set below. It will arrive complete with everything you need to perform the tests yourself and a paid return shipping envelope.
Note: Base $12 fee covers handling and shipping.
Why should I get both urine and throat tests?
Several common STDs can infect different parts of your body depending on how you were exposed to them and getting the wrong test could miss this!
For example, having unprotected vaginal sex could lead to a genital chlamydia infection. But having unprotected oral sex could lead to oral chlamydia. A urine test would miss oral infection and an oral swab could miss the genital infection. Both can cause you health complications and both can be passed to new partners. As a result, depending on your practices, we often recommend both urine and oral swab tests.
In our experience, poorly understanding how your sexual practices inform your real testing needs is one of the biggest challenges individuals face when seeing a doctor for their testing needs.
