Negative uti urine test rule out std?

Hi if a urine test for a uti is negative does that mean a person does not have chlamydia or gonorrhea? I know these two are bacterial stds that have their own urine tests. But if a uti urine test is free of bacteria then is one free of these two stds?

Dear Kim
No, chlamydia goes into cells and will not be picked up on a urine test, gonorrhea also not always - one needs to have specific blood tests for these

Thank you Dr Bets. Would these two stds be picked up with the specific gonorrhea and chlamydia urine tests? What is the best method of testing: blood tests or taking a sample of cells from the cervix?
