Gonorrhoea

Gonorrhoea is caused by bacteria, which are mainly found in discharge from the penis and in vaginal fluid. The bacteria can infect the cervix, the urethra, the rectum, and less commonly the throat or eyes or joints. Gonorrhoea can be very painful and if left untreated, it can cause painful complications and health problems.
