How do I know what disease I have? 
Different diseases will be tested differently. Your doctor will ask your symptoms and then take some test to confirm your condition. All of the diseases listed above should be diagnosed with a urine test to look for white blood cells or bacteria. If so, a urine bacterial culture is needed. For diagnosing urinary system diseases like UTI, cystitis and urethritis, your doctor will use a matching medical equipment to check the affected areas like urinary tract, bladder, or urethra. If suspected as prostatitis, you will also have a blood test and digital rectal examination. If your doctor think it’s an STD like chlamydia or gonorrhea, you will also have a swab of affected area. For women, your doctor takes a swab of the discharge from your cervix for culture or antigen testing for chlamydia or gonorrhea. For men, your doctor inserts a slim swab into the end of your penis to get a sample from the urethra. In some cases, your doctor may swab the anus.
What should I do if I have been diagnosed with Chlamydia or gonorrhea? 

You should take a treatment as soon as possible after receiving a diagnosis of Chlamydia or gonorrhea. You should notify all of your sexual partner to get tested for STD and have a treatment as well. It will reduce your risk of becoming re-infected, help avoid spreading the STD to other people, and decrease the risk that your previous sexual partner will develop serious complications from the STD. You and all of your sex partners should avoid sex until all symptoms disappeared and the infection is cleared up.

Usually, the symptoms will disappear after a few days or weeks. However, you need to continue the entire course of antibiotics even if you feel better to make sure the infection is cleared up completely. The treating course depends on your particular symptoms and medical history. Some patients may need a long-term treatment if the inflammation develops chronic.
