Gonorrhoea is caused by bacteria called Niesseria gonorrhoeae. It’s very contagious. It can infect your throat, urethra, vagina, and anus.

The good news is that it is easy to cure, too.

How do you get gonorrhoea?

You can get gonorrhoea by having unprotected oral, vaginal, or anal sex. No ejaculation is needed to spread it to another person.

Sometimes, mothers can pass gonorrhoea on to their babies.

Having a new sex partner or multiple sex partners can increase your chances of getting gonorrhoea.

How can you protect yourself from gonorrhoea?

You can reduce your risk of getting gonorrhoea by:

1. Always use condoms.

2. Getting tested for gonorrhoea with your partner.
If you’ve got a new sex partner, get tested for STDs like gonorrhoea because either you or your partner could be infected without knowing it.

3.If you’ve got any unusual discharge, sores, or pain when you urinate get tested by your doctor for STDs.

Any of these symptoms are signs that something is wrong. Also let your partner know, so he or she can get tested and treated too. Otherwise, you may pass gonorrhoea back and forth between you and your partner.

What are the signs of gonorrhoea?

Most women and some men have no signs of gonorrhoea infection. Even if you don’t have any signs of infection you can still pass it on.

If you have symptoms, they tend to appear within two to ten days. And when they do, they can be very mild.

Where you have symptoms usually depends on how you’ve had sex.

Gonorrhoea symptoms in women

  • Increased vaginal discharge
  • Yellow or green vaginal discharge
  • Strong unpleasant vaginal odour
  • Pain when you urinate
  • Pain when you have sex
  • Bleeding after sex
  • Itchy anus
  • Bloody or pus-like anal discharge
  • Difficulty having bowel movements
  • Abdominal pain

It’s easy to mistake pain when you urinate and abdominal pain for a bladder infection. However, if you do experience any of these symptoms, get checked out by your health care provider.

If you don’t get treated for gonorrhoea, you could become infertile. Like chlamydia, gonorrhoea can spread to the fallopian tubes. If it does, it causes swelling in the abdominal area so you will feel pain in your abdomen. As it spreads, it scars the tubes, and can block eggs from being released to the womb. Over time, this makes you infertile.

If you get pregnant when you’re infected with gonorrhoea, you have a greater chance of having an an ectopic pregnancy, when the baby develops outside the womb. Also you can pass on gonorrhoea to your baby when you give birth.

Gonorrhoea symptoms in men

  • Pain when you urinate
  • Needing to urinate often
  • White, yellow, or green penis discharge
  • Pain or swelling in one or both testicles
  • Bloody or mucous-like anal discharge

If you don’t get treated for gonorrhoea, you could become infertile. Gonorrhoea can spread along your urethra (the tube where urine comes from) all the way to your testicles. This is why you may feel pain or see swelling in your testicles. Over time, the infection can cause infertility.

How do you get tested for gonorrhoea?

In women, a swab is inserted into the vagina and a sample is taken from the cervix (the neck of the womb, at the end of the vagina). The sample is then tested for gonorrhoea.

In men, there are two ways to test for gonorrhoea – swab or urine analysis.

If gonorrhoea is tested using a swab, the swab is inserted into your urethra (the tube where urine comes from) and then tested for gonorrhoea. You will be asked not to urinate for at least two hours before the test. This is to prevent a false negative, where you test negative for gonorrhoea when you really have it. For a short time after the test, you feel a stinging sensation when you urinate.

If gonorrhoea is tested using urine analysis, you’ll be asked to urinate into a cup. Before getting tested, you’ll be asked not to urinate for at least four hours. Again, this is to prevent a false negative – you have gonorrhoea but it doesn’t show up. Your urine sample will then be analysed to see if you’ve got the infection.

How do you get rid of gonorrhoea?

Gonorrhoea is easy to cure with antibiotics. They come either in tablet or injection form. Finish all the medication as prescribed, even if you don’t have any symptoms, otherwise you may not get rid of the infection.

Antibiotics will treat your infection. However, if you’ve had gonorrhoea for a long time, they can’t repair any damage to your reproductive system.

Plz help me

    1. Why would she be not be
      Why would she be be truthful about loving you? Having had other partners in the past is okay, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love you. Neither does having a child or being older. So why would you want to break up with her??

    2. life is too short to spend
      life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.
      if you are happy with her, then move on but if your sincere happiness dose not come fro her then quit.

    3. The easiest way to brake up…
      The easiest way to brake up with a lady is to ask her for money so often and do not be the one giving. If she lend you simply don’t pay back until you brake up.

    1. Hi Bella,

      Hi Bella,
      to be honest, it’s unlikely that this man will leave his wife and children for you. It could happen, but chances are, it won’t. So it’s up to you to decide whether you want to be the number two for as long as he seems fit, or not. I suggest taking some time away from him, to decide what you want to do. It’s your choice. Think about what you want and need out of a relationship, and your future. Good luck!

    1. Hi Adesh,

      Hi Adesh,
      has she tried to speak to her parents? It’s difficult to change the minds of parents, but you need to at least try.
      And then, the two of you need to talk. What are your options? Could you get married against their will, for example? Could you part ways? Lots of questions, you need to get talking and start some decisions.

    1. Hi Nelson,

      Hi Nelson,
      give her a bit more time, maybe she needs some space.
      But then you need to talk to her about this. Her behavior towards you is odd, so you need to try to understand why she is behaving in this way.

      you need to have an honest conversation with her to see what is going on. You two need to make a decision on how to move your relationship forward.

      talk to her one last time and make it clear you want to cut all ties with her. And then stay away. If she texts you, delete her texts. Stay away from her, it’s the best thing you can do.

    1. Hi Susan,

      Hi Susan,

      Finding out that your partner’s been cheating on you can be a traumatic experience. It can seriously damange the trust between the two of you and could even lead to a break-up, separation or divorce. You might spend days, weeks or months wondering what you did wrong and why this happened.

      But don’t blame yourself – take some time to calm down and think about your relationship.

      Whether you want to stay with your partner depends on a number of things. Is your partner willing to go on? If they are, what will it take for them to regain your trust? Will your trust in them ever be restored? How can you start rebuilding your relationship? The answers may not be simple, but give these questions some thought and it might help you decide on the right path to take.

    1. Justus,

      it seems she is playing with you. If you are okay with it, and don’t expect a loving relationship, that’s fine. But be aware of what is happening.

    2. Hi Knight, sorry that you are
      Hi Knight, sorry that you are going through this issue with your partner.

      If you feel like you’ve given all you’ve got to your relationship, but it’s still not working. If your relationship makes you tired? Or you just grown apart and can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel? Well, then it’s probably time to consider ending your relationship.

      Breaking up with your partner is never easy, but sometimes you have to do it. Sometimes we stay in unhappy relationships because ending it is such a tough decision, and can cause a lot of emotional stress and practical problems. If you’re putting it off, even though you feel it’s the right thing to do, you’re not the only one.

    1. Hi there,

      Hi there,

      It sounds like you have a lot going on.

      You need to step back and think about the situation and what you want. Its important for you to decide what you feel is important in your life right now and then take action.

    1. Hi Tito,

      Hi Tito,

      Sometimes we can be in a relationship but that does not mean we are in the same point in life.

      You need to take time and decide if you will wait for the five years or you let go and look for someone else ho is willing to settle down with you.

      All the best.

    1. Hi there,

      Hi there,

      If you and your partner are fighting over the same issue again and again, it’s a sign of a long-standing and unresolved dispute. There are different ways of approaching such a stalemate. You can step back and look at the fights from a distance – go beyond the petty issues and find out what’s actually causing the discontent. Most agreements can be negotiated, but not everything. If you feel outside help would benefit your relationship, maybe you could go to a counsellor specialised in relationship conflicts.

  29. Hi there, I and my girlfriend
    Hi there, I and my girlfriend are dating for 3 months already… but i noticed she keep things from me… she’s no fan of P.D.A… i dont know if i intimidate her cos i’m 5 years older than her… truth is, i’m tired of her acts and i’m considering a break up…. what’s your take on this?

    1. Hi August,

      Hi August,

      Dating is about knowing your partner, knowing her likes and dislikes and the same applies to them. Its always fun when you get a partner where you have a lot of things in common but you can never have everything in common.

      There are some things you will like about your partner and others that you won’t. The same applies to her she might dislike a few things about you.

      So relationships are about sacrifice and compromise. Learn to live with each others faults. But if you feel you can not handle them you can still make the decision to break up.

      Take time and think about it.

    1. Hi Shirleen, unfortunately
      Hi Shirleen, unfortunately the choice to get back with your ex is not up to you alone.

      There are a lot of things that are involved in dating your ex.

      Getting back with your ex depends on a few things like, do you both still want the same thing? Do you feel you can be able to resolve the issues that le to the break up in the first place?

      After you’ve ended your relationship, one big question is whether you can remain friends with your ex. There’s no clear answer to that question. It depends on you, your ex and how the relationship ended.

      But be picky, too. If you know that the differences between you while dating were too big, the same might happen in the new relationship. It’s not worth getting hurt twice!

      Its always important to take care and your feelings first before you make a step towards mending the relationship. Having a sober mind while making such a decision is very important

    1. Hi Ethel,

      Hi Ethel,

      Being in a relationship does not mean other people will not be attracted to you or you partner. There is nothing anyone can do about it. If both you and your partner love each other then you will stay faithful to each other and concentrate on your relationship. It is ok to talk it over with your partner if you feel its making you uncomfortable.

        Hello Cynthia ndirangu. Yes, gonorrhea can be cured with the right treatment. It is important that you take all of the medication your doctor prescribes to cure your infection. Medication for gonorrhea should not be shared with anyone. Although medication will stop the infection, it will not undo any permanent damage caused by the disease. If you suspect that you have it, visit your doctor as soon as possible to get a proper diagnosis and receive adequate treatment. Have a wonderful week ahead and stay safe.

      Hi, there is no such side effect associated with a Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) after treatment. What you are experiencing is known as Premature Ejaculation which is caused by a number of reasons including fear, anxiety or even stress. Anxiety that one will not perform can make him ejaculate much earlier or stress from home or work.

      Hi John, thank you for reaching out to us. First, did you talk to your artner before removing the condom? If not, please note that this was a violation of your agreement and is comparable to rape. Second, if you contracted something it would usually not be visible or evident in 24 hours or less. However, if you are truly concerned please see a medical practitioner at your earliest convenience.
