Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection of the genitals, throat, or anus. You can get gonorrhoea from having unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone.
Unprotected sex is when you have sex without a condom, or an oral dam. If you have gonorrhoea, and you don’t get it treated, it can cause more serious infection, and problems with fertility.
If you give birth and you have gonorrhoea, the baby can become infected with gonorrhoea.
