The 2 major tests to determine Gonorrhea are,
1. Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT). NAATs find the genetic material (DNA) of gonorrhea germs. These tests are very accurate. They can be done on urine samples or samples of body fluid from the area where the infection is suspected.
2. Gonorrhea culture. This test is done on a sample of body fluid collected from the area where the infection is suspected, such as the cervix, urethra, eye, rectum, or throat. The sample is combined with substances that help the gonorrhea germs grow. This test can also tell if the gonorrhea germs are resistant to antibiotics.
