Ash makes it easy to get tested for gonorrhea from home. No awkward conversations, doctor appointments, or insurance required.
Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection that lives on the warm and wet lining inside your pee hole, vagina, butt hole or throat. Gonorrhea is treatable, but you can get it over and over again.
It often doesn’t look like anything, this is called being asymptomatic. Depending on what parts of your body you use during sex, Gonorrhea may look different for different people. If you use a penis during sex it may feel like burning when you pee, painful/swollen balls, or a white/yellow/green goo coming out of your penis. If you use a vagina during sex it may feel like burning when you pee, increased discharge from your vagina, or bleeding between periods. If you use your butt hole during sex it may look like a discharge or bleeding from your butt hole, a sore or itchy butthole, or pain when you poop.
When the warm and wet lining of your pee hole, vagina, butt hole or throat comes in contact with those parts on a partner, or any of the fluids from those areas(not just cum), Gonorrhea can be shared. This usually happens during vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex or any combination of the three.
Gonorrhea usually looks like nothing at all, which is why it is so good at getting around, so the only way to know is to get tested.
Your kit will include tools for urine collection or a vaginal swab collection. Collecting your samples is easy and painless.
Every kit comes with easy to follow instructions to walk you through how to collect your sample.
It takes approximately two days for your kit to make it to our lab partner. Once received results are ready within 48-72 hours.
An Ash physician will review your order to ensure you are being appropriately tested. In the event of a positive result we will connect you with a medical professional who can assist with diagnosis and treatment.
First, take a deep breath – all STIs are treatable. We will help connect you with a healthcare provider who can guide you through next steps and treatment options.
When your results are ready you will receive an email notifying you your results are ready on our secure web portal. You must log in to view your results and only you have access to them.
Given that all STIs have different incubation periods, the time between infection and first exhibiting symptoms (if symptoms appear at all), it is important to get tested regularly as a sexual active person. We recommend being tested every 1-3 months which is why we offer subscription plans to make it as easy as possible to manage your health.
