What is Gonorrhoea and why you should test early:
Gonorrhoea is the second most common STI in the UK, it is caused by a bacterium called Neisseria Gonorrhoea. Gonorrhoea can infect areas of the body such as the cervix, urethra, anus, rectum or throat.
Gonorrhoea is passed on through vaginal, anal and oral sex, although sometimes it only takes physical contact to spread. Gonorrhoea can be passed onto a newborn from an infected mother during delivery, causing eye infections in the baby. Like most sexually transmitted diseases, gonorrhoea can be avoided by practising safe sex and regular screening.
Women’s symptoms may include:
- Pain or burning sensation while urinating.
- A change in colour of vaginal discharge (dark yellow or bloody) and can have a strong smell.
- Lower abdominal pain.
For women, the most common complication of untreated Gonorrhoea is Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (P.I.D.). P.I.D. can cause infertility or ectopic pregnancy in women.
Men’s symptoms are more noticeable and include:
- Discharge from the penis.
- Burning sensation while urinating.
- Inflamed testes.
- Irritation or discharge from the anus.
In men, complications of untreated Gonorrhoea can lead to infertility and on rare occasions untreated Gonorrhoea can spread to the bloodstream and infect the joints.
The treatment of Gonorrhoea is usually with antibiotics. If you have Gonorrhoea it is very important that your partner is also tested and treated even if they have no symptoms. Please speak to your doctor before commencing treatment.
A repeat test will usually be carried out after treatment to ensure the infection has gone.
