      im still in high school and im kinda scared to tell my mom because I dont want her asking questions because she doesnt know ive had sex so im going to go to my school based health center because they do checks for stds and such but they make you pee in a cup, if i pee in a cup will a yeast infection or chlamydia be detected?

      I think it depends on the sensitivity and specificity.

      For female, the sensitivity of cervical swab NAAT is 98.3% while specificity is 96.1%. The sensitivity of urine NAAT is 94.3% while specificity is 98%.

      For male, the sensitivity of urethral swab NAAT is 97.8% while specificity is 96.1%. The sensitivity of urine NAAT is 96.0% while specificity is 97.2%.

      Therefore, cervical swab NAAT is better on diagnosing 'true-positive' while urine NAAT is better on confirming a negative results.

    it looks more like yeast than it does chlamydia as the skin is red and the discharge looks quite thick
