Gonorrhoea is a very common STD, second only to Chlamydia in the uk. It is cause by Neisseria Gonorrhoea, bacteria which can grow in the cervix, uterus and egg canals in women as well as the urethra of both men and women.


The most common symptoms for men include:

  • Pain when passing urine
  • Discharge
  • Painful or swollen testicles


And for women:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Irregular bleeding or bleeding after sex
  • Discharge


If untreated, Gonorrhoea can go on to cause pelvic inflammatory disease in women, leading to infertility. In men it can affect the prostate and make urination difficult.

Testing for the infection is fast and painless and if diagnosed, it can be treated with antibiotics.
