Gonorrhea

What is gonorrhea? A bacterial infection; also called 'the clap'

How do I get it? Vaginal, anal or oral sex

Symptoms:
The symptoms are often worse for men than women. Men have extreme pain when peeing and get a discharge from their penis. Women get some discharge. You can get a sore throat from having oral sex ("going down on") with someone who has gonorrhea.

Prevention:
Avoid having sex until you are cured! Condoms & spermicides reduce the risk, but not totally.

Treatment:
Don't worry. This is treatable. Your doctor will run some tests and prescribe the correct drugs for you to take to get rid of this infection.
