What are the testing procedures for each std?
I went to the emergency room to grasp checked and they stuck a swab/culture into my penis (THE MOST PAINFUL EVENT IN MY LIFE!) but they didn't tell me what they tested for, however they gave me a really prickly shot and some antibiotics and told me that they won't know for 3 days if whether or not i have the two stds they checked for and if i did have the injection and the antibiotics would cover me. However they did notify me that I was not tested for HIV. So I want to know exactly how they test for respectively of the following stds...
- herpes simplex
- hepatits b
Answer: Crabs or Pubic Lice
A doctor or nurse will conduct a physical examination to look for lice and eggs. He or she may use a magnifying chalice or analyze crabs under a microscope to confirm their diagnosis.
A doctor or nurse will conduct a physical examination to look for the primary symptom of genital herpes, blisters. If the blisters are not adjectives, the doctor may send the patient to a specialist surrounded by a genitourinary medicine clinic for confirmation of the diagnosis. At the GUM clinic, a blister is virologically analyzed. This entails taking a token of the blister and examining it under a microscope.
If there is no presence of blisters but an infection is suspected, it is also possible to carry out a blood test, which will look for herpes simplex antibodies. It is thought that this test is just about 85% accurate, though.
Blood, Urine or Cell Samples
The testing and diagnosis of chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, Trichomonas Vaginalis, the HIV virus, genital wart and genital herpes require either blood, urine or cell samples to be taken and analyzed.
Chlamydia can be detected by a urine tryout or swab sample from the urethra, the cervix, rectum, throat or eye. A visible symptom of chlamydia is inflamed cervix cell or a discharge.
Gonorrhoea can be diagnosed through a cell sample taken from the cervix, urethra, rectum or throat or a urine sample. The preview will be left to culture for a few days before self assessed for the signs of the bacteria that causes gonorrhea.
Syphilis can be detected through a blood and urine indication, cell sample, or physical examination of the genitals and body. A cell preview is taken from infected areas such as the cervix, genital area, penis, urethra, anus or mouth.
Trichomoniasis is caused by the parasite Tricohomonas Vaginalis. Trichomoniasis, or trich, can be detected contained by a physical examination when an unusual discharge is apparent or during a routine cervical smear assessment. Another method to test for this STD is through a urine sample or a cell taste from the vagina, genital area or urethra.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
The primary detection of HIV is through a blood sample to testing for HIV antibodies in the blood. If HIV antibodies are found, the patient is HIV positive. Another assessment is conducted to confirm diagnosis..
