There’s only one way to find out – get tested!
Anyone who is sexually active can easily catch or spread this infection if they aren’t using condoms. Spectrum provide condoms for free to 16-25 year olds – so think twice before having unprotected sex.
You could have Gonorrhoea and not even know it…
It’s important to know that some people get STI symptoms within 1-14 days and others don’t. Symptoms can many months to show any visible signs, by which point the infection could have spread to other parts of your body.
If you ‘caught’ Gonorrhoea from unprotected sex, these are the more common symptoms to look out for:
- Unusual discharge from the vagina/penis
- Pain when passing urine
- Lower abdomen/testicle pain or tenderness
