Men may have a yellow or white discharge (liquid) from the penis, pain or tingling when passing urine, inflammation of the testicles, or discharge or discomfort in the anus. Gonorrhea in the eyes can cause redness and irritation. Less commonly, gonorrhea can cause inflammation of the joints and tendons, skin lesions or, rarely, can affect the brain and heart.

A Brief detail of Gonorrhoea Test Kit

Gonorrhoea Test Kit

Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection brought about by bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoea. The bacteria are mainly found in discharge from the penis and in vaginal fluid.

The bacteria can affect the urethra, vagina, rectum, throat, and eyes. It is the second most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the UK.

Gonorrhoea is easily passed between people through, unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex, sharing vibrator or other sex toys that have not been washed or covered with a new condom.

Gonorrhoea is easily treated. In any case, if left untreated in women, gonorrhoea can spread to other reproductive organs (the womb and the fallopian tubes), causing long-term pain, blocked tubes, infertility and ectopic pregnancy (this is when a pregnancy develops in the fallopian tube rather than in the womb). If untreated in men, gonorrhoea can cause a painful infection in the testicles and prostate gland.
