It’s been 4 years in Cambodia that I was exploring  my specialty, Noticeably, there’re so many patients who came to see me but deep down inside, they really want  to get counselling  over the Sexually transmitted disease (STD) issues.  Especially, people who got a very risky sexuality intercourse with a stranger partners which is new to them. And most of people who came to me come up with a 100% male. Why male? As you already know that the male who got infected or carried this bacteria, subjectively symptoms will show at any time. However, female will show no symptoms if they got infected or carried the bacteria.  A few things that they seem to be realized and feel abnormal like too smell all over their vagina and itchy.

Simple urine collection for STIs Multiplex PCR

I am going to talk about the world-most 2 incidences of STDs that is a Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infections. Barely, these 2 STDs have over 200 million new-cases reported yearly. The most sexually contacted at any routes like vaginal discharge, saliva or even rectal it also can be infected. Male patients will surely suffering the urethral discharging and painfully in urination for 3 – 14 days after exposed. This is the most common reason that why they came to get counseling with me. The conventional investigation methodology to identify the infection is to use a sterile cotton bud insert and swab inside the urethra for 4 cm depth in order to get sampling of the discharges then send the gram smear to get examined. It is pretty painful literally, and is not so much accuracy on the result receiving. I can say that 50% in term of accuracy rate and it really relied on the technician‘s skill as well.

Well, you no longer need the cotton bud to insert yours urethra, it is done just by requiring your little amount of a morning urines sampling. We got it then we send it to the high-tech laboratory and used special technique called PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) to grow it up for the STDs. This PCR test will meet the accuracy rates up to 98% trustable, so no more painful during conducting the test and you will peacefully trust the test that we have done for you.
