Gonorrhoea Info

Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection passed on during sex (vaginal, anal or oral). It is the second most common sexually transmitted infection in young people 24 and under.

What happens if I don't get treated for gonorrhoea?

Untreated gonorrhoea can cause complications later on. In women the infection can lead to pelvic infection. In men it can cause painful swollen balls (testicles). Gonorrhoea can lead to infertility in both women and men.

Will I know how long I've had the infection?

Some people with gonorrhoea get symptoms which get worse if left untreated. Others don't get symptoms, so it's not really possible to tell how long they have had it.

How did I get gonorrhoea?

Gonorrhoaea is passed on during condomless vaginal, anal or oral sex.

How do I protect myself against getting gonorrhoea?

Using condoms when having vaginal or anal sex is always advisable, as is not sharing sex toys, or if you do, wash them or cover them with a new condom before anyone else uses them.

  • Very grateful for this easy, cost-free service, especially as private sites are charging youngsters in excess of 30 pounds for a kit.
