Urine Testing & Specimen Collection

Gay City proudly offers you self-administered urine testing for two STIs: Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Self-collected urine tests provide a less invasive method for testing – no blood samples or swabs to be inserted into your body.

All results will be available to clients within two weeks through the online testing results portal.

Urine STI Testing Steps

1. Wash your hands

2. Collect the first 20-30 mL of your urine stream in the urine collection cup. Collecting the first-stream of urine is important.
