What is Gonorrhoea?
Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection that can affect both men and women. It often exhibits subtle or even no symptoms in its early stages, making regular testing a crucial aspect of maintaining your sexual health. If left untreated, Gonorrhoea can lead to serious complications, such as inflammatory pelvic disease in women and testicular swelling in men, which can result in infertility.
How is Gonorrhoea spread?
Gonorrhoea is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which thrives in warm and moist areas of the body such as the urethra, vagina, anus, eyes, and throat. The primary mode of transmission is through unprotected sexual activities, including vaginal, anal, and oral intercourse. Sharing sex toys also contributes to the spread of this infection. Additionally, pregnant individuals can transmit Gonorrhoea to their babies during childbirth.
