About chlamydia, gonorrhea and mycoplasma in a man
You can get chlamydia, gonorrhea and/or mycoplasma on the penis if the bacteria that cause the STI get to your penis, for example through unprotected sex. You can get the following symptoms from both mycoplasma genitalium and chlamydia and/or gonorrhea:
- More or different discharge than normal (for gonorrhea: yellow-green or pus-like)
- Pain during sex or when urinating
- Pain in the lower abdomen
- Bleeding while not having your period
Many people have no complaints at all. So if in doubt, get yourself tested, even if you don’t have any problems.

From when can I take the STI test?
Every STI has a window phase. This is the time from the moment of infection to the moment when you can detect the STI. For chlamydia, gonorrhea and mycoplasma, the window phase is 14 days. It is therefore important that you do not take the test until 14 days after you have had unprotected sex. This period also applies if you want to be tested by your GP or GGD.
