NAAT Testing Question

I took an NAAT test for Chlamydia and Gonorreah in early July five months after a possible exposure and it came back negative for both.  When I provided the sample I did shortly after starting urination.  That is, it wasn't first catch, it was shortly after.  Does this impact testing results?  From what I have read and I also in talking to the county STD clinic, the way testing is now whether it's mid-stream or first catch does not make a difference.  I don't have any symptoms and it's been six months now.  I guess I am just worried about a false negative for some reason.  Any help answering this is appreciated.

Hi im sure your test is conclusive as the NAAT is very sensitive also you did not have any symptoms of a white puss discharge and in almost all cases men will have this esp with gono.
