Gonorrhoea

Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection that is quite common in New Zealand. It is transmitted during oral, vaginal or anal sex and penetration does not need to happen to spread the infection.

You may not notice any symptoms and may not know you have the infection. 

Gonorrhoea can lead to serious health problems for both men and women if left untreated. Gonorrhoea is treated with antibiotics. Some people may need multiple courses of antibiotics to clear the infection.
