Are there any symptoms?
  • In the penis, there is almost always pain when urinating, yellow discharge and soreness around the urethra (opening of the penis)
  • In the vagina, unusual discharge, pain when urinating, pain during sex, spotting
  • If left untreated, vaginal gonorrhoea can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) which may make it harder to get pregnant
  • In the anus, there may be wetness (discharge), pain, or bleeding
  • You can catch Gonorrhoea via oral sex which can lead to getting the infection in the throat, but it’s unlikely you will have any symptoms here
