Gonorrhoea Symptoms

Gonorrhoea can affect the throat or rectum (bum) as well as the genital area depending on the sex you have had. If you think this is a risk, you should tell the doctor or nurse who can then take a sample from your throat or rectum to be absolutely sure.

10% of men and 80% of women have no symptoms but symptoms may include:

  • This is a great service. More places in the UK need this to encourage young people to get tested!

  • I've only used this website twice, but both times i was very pleased with the service. It's simple to use and fast results. Good if you lack confidence to go face to face. Defo use in the future :)
