Symptoms of gonorrhoea usually develop within about 2 weeks of being infected, although they sometimes do not appear until many months later.
Gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted infection.
Gonorrhoea is mainly spread through unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex.
Not everyone with gonorrhoea has symptoms. Common symptoms include unusual discharge from your vagina or penis and pain when peeing.
Gonorrhoea is treated with antibiotics. You can get treatment from a sexual health clinic.
