Gonorrhoea is an infection that is found in both sexes and can affect the genitals, anus, rectum and throat. About half of all women infected with gonorrhoea and over 90% of men experience symptoms, including a thin, watery discharge from the vagina or tip of the penis that can appear yellow or green, and pain when urinating.
Gonorrhea can be detected using a simple urine test or swab. Early treatment for gonorrhea involves a single dose of antibiotics. If complications occur further treatment will be needed.
