Gonorrhoea

Gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in people under 25, and is very easy to catch.

Men are more likely to have symptoms than women, such as discomfort passing urine and discharge from the end of their penis.

Gonorrhoea is easily treated with antibiotics. Always using condoms when you have sex is the best way to protect yourself from getting or passing on this infection.
