Dear Dinesh.

Apologies, but firstly your history is woefully inadequate.

When was the sexual exposure? only oral sex? recepient or deliverer? Did you have any oral ulcerations? What were the symptoms? How much after the stated exposure did you develop these?
Why do you suspect chlamydia or gonorrhea?

Now, having being treated, am afraid, the tests may not be accurate.
Am assuming you are currently asymptomatic.
Wait for a week or two. If symptoms recur, then go visit your nearest dermatologist/venereologist for a clinical examination & relevant blood tests or test of the discharge if any.

Trust this answers' your queries. Do get back with replies for best results or use our premium 'ask-a-specialist' feature & get in touch with me directly.

In the meantime, wish you good health & please do practice safe sex irrespective of type or partner/partners'
