Gonorrhea and Chlamydia culture test

I was told by Vance to start a new thread...

Are there culture tests for chlamydia/gonorrhea/trich using urine? I thought culture test was only done for urethral swab.

How sensitive is a culture test for chlamydia/gonorrhea using urine sample? 50%? 75%?  I could not find a good reference.

Does anyone know where one can get a PCR test for Trichomoniasis?  

Thanks!

Yes, urine or swab. If done correctly it is highly reliable.

Call the SF city clinic...assume your in SF.
