The doctor asked me if I had urinated 3 hours before. I think it was around 3 hours between the last time I urinated and the time I took the test - but I can't remember now - might have been a hour or even less. Just worried that, if it had been an hour or less between the time I last went to the toilet last and when I took my urine test for STDs, I might have 'fooled' the tests, and may have a 'false' negative, when I might actually be positive for some of these infections. Just wanted to know if it makes a difference how long you wait between urinating last, and urinating for an STD test, and whether, in my case it affects the accuracy of my test results. Note - the doctor did not take a swab - just took a urine sample.
