    Gonorrhea Urine culture test accuracy
    An_257827 posted:
    I might have contracted Gonorrhea 3 to 7 years ago.

    Just wanted to know the accuracy of Gonorrhea urine culture test.

    My results are:
    Gram Stain: Occasional pus cells seen, no bacteria observed
    No growth observed
    Smear for N.Gonorrhoeae - Negative

    I fear that this test might not detect it since I might have contracted it many years ago...

    Thanks for your reply.

    Your test results are accurate as to your status regarding this disease you "might" (but didn't) contract.
