This test package allows you to get tested for both chlamydia and gonorrhoea at a discounted rate. These are common bacterial infections which are acquired through unprotected sexual contact and which affect men and women equally.
Chlamydia and gonorrhoea are often found as active infections at the same time (co-infection), which is why they are frequently tested for together. They are also easily passed on, and the age group 16-24 is statistically at higher risk of contracting these infections. If you are within this age group and having unprotected sex, it is recommended that you get tested regularly.
Both of these diseases, if left untreated, can lead to infertility and other serious complications.

Gonorrhoea is often found as a co-infection alongside chlamydia – both of them are bacterial STDs. The risk factors for both are quite similar, and if you have one, it is a good idea to check that you do not also have the other.
Both chlamydia and gonorrhoea are on the rise. It is advised that you test for these infections if you have had unprotected sex (even once), if you have had multiple sexual partners at one time, or if you are a man who has sex with men.
Having an existing STD is a risk factor for contracting another STD. So if you already have an infection that you are not aware of, you are putting your health at greater risk. Both of these infections have serious long-term complications, including fertility, so it is important to get treated as soon as possible, and to avoid passing any infections on to your partners.
