How To Prepare
Gonorrhea testing is done on:
- Fluid collected from the area of the body that is likely to be infected. Women should not douche or use vaginal creams or medicines for at least 24 hours before having a gonorrhea test.
- Urine. Do not urinate for 2 hours before a urine sample is collected.
