Gonorrhoea is a bacterial sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium neissseria gonorrohoea. The infection is passed on during unprotected vaginal, anal and oral sex, and sharing sex toys owned by an infected person. Many people with the infection will not experience any symptoms, but it is possible that some may occur. These might include an unusual discharge from the penis or vagina, pain when urinating, pain or swelling of the testicles (in men), pain in the lower abdomen and unexplained bleeds between periods for women. If left untreated, this infection can lead to health complications such as infertility or pelvic inflammatory disease. The recommended treatment for gonorrhoea is by injection of antibiotics at your local GUM (sexual health) clinic. Alternatively, Gonorrhoea can be cured with the help of a combination antibiotic treatment, such as Azithromycin and Cefixime.
