Thanks for the query,
The urine sample taken for NAAT automatically brushes away the urethra inhabited by the gonorrhoea or chlamydia organisms and hence are detectable under NAAT. Hence, it is necessary for the discharge if you may call it to be present in the urine sample, that is how it is detected.
I hope I have addressed your concern,
