GONORRHOEA FEMALE   This can be hard to identify in women due to the fact that the reproductive organs are internal, however some symptoms to look out for include:

A change in vaginal discharge- particularly look out for a green or yellow tint to it
Irritation around, or a discharge from, the anus
Pain when peeing
A sore throat if this is infected

The cause of this STD is bacteria known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae which thrives in warm areas such as the genitals. It can also live in the throat, mouth, eyes and anus as well as the obvious genital reason. It is spread by vaginal and oral sex as well as either touching someone where they are infected and putting your fingers in your mouth or near you genitals and rimming (stimulating your partner’s anus with your mouth).

Another important thing to know is that a man’s pre-seminal fluid can spread this disease just as well as when he has ejaculated fully, so make sure your partner puts on a condom before he gets anywhere near you.

A test for this STD can be done at a GUM clinic or your doctors, as well as via a home test from chemists or the internet, and will simply entail either a urine test, a swab or plastic loop taking a sample from the infected area. The results talk about a week to come back. Treatment is either tablets or an injection and it essential due to the fact that if left there are long term effects such as possible fertility problems in the future as well as painful things such as pelvis inflammatory disease. Gonorrhoea can, in rare cases, also spread to the blood or joints and cause big problems. Because of this it is important that if you have any concern that you might have this disease you get checked out immediately.
