Gonorrhoea is a form of sexually transmitted infection (STI). It’s a bacterial infection and is spread from person-to-person through unprotected sex or via sharing unclean sex toys.
It’s not spread through kissing, sharing a bath or toilet seats.

A gonorrhoea infection is caused by a bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae or gonococcus. In the past, the infection was commonly called The Clap.
Gonorrhoea is caught through having unprotected sex with people – vaginal, anal and oral sex can all transmit the infection.
It’s also possible to catch it if you share sex toys, such as vibrators or butt plugs, that haven’t been properly cleaned or had a fresh condom put on them before use.
There are various symptoms and signs that you could have gonorrhoea. These vary slightly between men and women.
In men, the main symptoms include:
In women, the main symptoms include:
If the gonorrohoea infection has been caused by having unprotected anal or oral sex, then both men and women can experience pain, discomfort and discharge from the rectum.
Unfortunately, about one in 10 men and up to half of all women who have the infection don’t experience any symptoms. This means it can be left untreated and may be unknowingly passed on to other people.
If there is any small chance that you think you could have gonorrhoea, it is definitely worth getting tested. If you feel awkward about obtaining STI antibiotics from your local pharmacy, you can buy gonorrhoea treatment online from Prescription Doctor.
