    Generally they are over 90% accurate when done at a GP/clinic, shop bought tests may have decreased accuracy, so there is a margin of error. It also depends on the type of test (swab or urine sample). If you're concerned then I'd recommend a repeat test and overall sexual health screening as there are many other conditions which can present with similar symptoms.
