Are there any symptoms?
  • Symptoms can be different depending on where the infection is
  • In the urethra (the bit of the penis where pee comes out), you may notice pain when urinating or an unusual discharge
  • 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
  • In the vagina, there may be unusual discharge, pain when urinating, or pain during sex. If left untreated, it can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) which may make it hard to get pregnant
