Can Urine Tests Detect Sexually Transmitted Infections?

Hello doctor, I want to ask if a urine test can detect sexually transmitted infections? Thank you

Hello Raniningrum09, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Routine urine test is a check to find out how the condition of someone's urine, where the examination is done is to see the urine condition in plain view and also under microscope. This examination itself is used to determine abnormalities that may occur in the urinary tract, not to find out a sexually transmitted infection (especially for women).


As it is understood, a sexually transmitted infection is a disease that affects the genital tract, so the examination to find out someone has a sexually transmitted infection is quite different because the examination requires samples of different fluids in the form of vaginal fluid or sperm and can not use urine to determine this infection. Sometimes, blood tests can also be used to find out a particular sexually transmitted infection.


If you want to find out if you have a sexually transmitted infection or not, you should consult with your doctor first to help determine what checks should be done so as not to do checks that are not needed.


I hope this helps.
