When should you get tested?
If you have had unprotected sex, it is recommended to take a test for sexually transmitted diseases. Chlamydia is the most widespread venereal disease in Norway, while the spread of gonorrhea is also increasing. Both chlamydia and gonorrhea rarely cause symptoms – many are therefore infected without knowing it, which in turn increases the risk of infecting others. It is therefore important to get tested, despite the fact that you do not feel any symptoms.
What happens after the test is delivered
We will contact you as soon as the sample has been analysed. This usually takes between 3-7 working days from the time the envelope is sent. You will receive a message with a link to Patient Sky with available test results, and if you test positive for chlamydia or gonorrhea, you will additionally be called by a nurse at Dr.Dropin.
In the event of a positive chlamydia test, you will be told to apply for treatment, which you will receive within 2 hours after the form has been sent. Treatments are free.
In the case of a positive gonorrhea test, the positive sample must be confirmed with a culture test, this is to confirm that you have gonorrhea and is necessary before you receive treatment. You can carry out a cultivation test at Dr. Dropin or in the public sector (free of charge).
If you have further questions after the phone call, the nurse will issue a discount code for video doctor for NOK 1,– if you have questions that the nurse cannot answer. For other questions or inquiries, you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Venereal diseases – symptoms and treatment
A venereal disease – also called venereal disease, sexually transmitted disease or infection – is a group of infectious diseases that are transmitted sexually, either through vaginal intercourse, anally or orally. The infection occurs via contact between skin and mucous membranes in the mouth, genitals and intestines, or sometimes via blood. The infection can be caused by bacteria, viruses, mites and lice.
STDs are among the most common infections in the world, and there is effective treatment for most of them. They are easily contagious as you are often completely without symptoms and signs of infection for a long time, and thus often infect others without being aware of it.Order home test

Course of treatment
Chlamydia infection is treated with a course of antibiotics for 7 days. It is important that you take the entire course even if you feel better after a few days, then there is a risk that the infection will flare up again if you do not complete the course and that the bacteria will become resistant to the antibiotic (do not respond to the treatment).
Standard treatment for gonorrhea is antibiotics as a single dose. This is injected into the gluteal muscle. After treatment, the patient is observed for 30 minutes. The vast majority will tolerate the treatment well without significant discomfort. Due to increasing resistance, retesting is done 2 weeks after treatment to check whether the treatment was correct. Patients must not have unprotected sex during this period.
Treatment for both chlamydia and gonorrhea are free. When it comes to the injection for gonorrhea, you can choose to book an appointment with your GP yourself or for free at, for example, Sex og Samfunn, Olafiaklinikken or other health centres. You can also book an appointment at one of our clinics for NOK 69,–.
