Gonorrhoea is the second most prevalent bacterial STI. In 2017, there was a 22% rise in diagnoses of the condition across England. According to the NHS, a tenth of men and just under half of women experience no symptoms.
Gonorrhoea is caused by bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The bacteria are passed on through sexual contact.
Symptoms of a gonorrhoea infection can include:
In some cases, gonorrhoea can be asymptomatic (cause no symptoms). Because of this, it is important to be tested for gonorrhoea even if you are not experiencing symptoms. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can lead to infertility in both sexes, pelvic inflammatory disease, septicaemia or ectopic pregnancy in women.
In pregnant women, untreated gonorrhoea can lead to miscarriage, premature labour or the baby being born with damage to their vision.
To test for gonorrhoea, a urine sample is required. Gonorrhoea can be tested for using any of the following kits:
Gonorrhoea has an incubation period of 2 to 7 days. Testing for gonorrhoea too early can produce a false negative. Symptoms are likely to develop later, by which time you could have unknowingly passed on the infection to your partner.
The gonorrhoea testing kit contains:
To use the testing kit, start by filling in the documentation (the request form and the label) with a black, ballpoint pen. Be sure to write the required information clearly.
Ideally, your sample should be provided in the morning straight after waking up. Make the urine collection box by squeezing the sides and start urinating into the box. Once you have filled the box halfway, continue urinating into the toilet.
Carefully pour the urine from the sample box into the sample vial, being careful not to get any urine on the outside of the tube. Once you've filled the sample vial up to the marking, screw on the cap tightly.
Discard of the remaining urine from the sample box down the toilet and discard of the box itself.
Seal the vial into the plastic wallet.
Put the plastic wallet with the urine sample into the test kit box, along with the request form. Then place the box into the prepaid envelope, seal it and post it to the lab at your earliest convenience.
Results will be available 2 days after the lab has received your sample.
You will be able to access your results through your Prescription Doctor account. You will also receive an email and text message to notify you once your results are made available.
If you or your partner experience symptoms of gonorrhoea, or if one of your previous partners has told you they have tested positive for gonorrhoea, you should be tested.
You should also consider being regularly tested for other STIs if you are outside a monogamous relationship and sexually active.
If you test positive for gonorrhoea, you should inform all sexual partners from the last 3 months as they would also need testing.
The typical treatment for gonorrhoea is an injection followed by an antibiotic tablet. However, the alternative treatment of two antibiotic tablets can be given if you prefer.
You may be asked to take a test a week after being given treatment to ensure the treatment has worked and that the infection has cleared.
The sample you provide is analysed at our partnered laboratory using the same testing techniques used by hospitals and sexual health clinics.
