Gonorrhoea

Gonorrhoea is a common bacterial sexually transmitted disease. The most common groups affected are young people - young men aged between 20 and 24 years and young women aged between 16 and 19 years. The annually recorded figures have shown enormous rises since the early to mid 1990's, probably as peopel relaxed their use of condoms in response to the AIDS epidemic of the early 1980's.

Gonorrhoea symptoms will vary depending on which part of your body is affected and if you are male or female.

Testing

We use state of the art testing methods and use a first rate laboratory, the Doctors Laboratory for all our analysis. Wherever possible we will take urine samples instead of urethral swabs. We will try to combine detection with determining the antibiotic sensitivity of the gonorrhoea.

Treatment

Gonorrhoea is very quick to become resistant to different antibiotics and so we make sure we are fully acquainted of local and global resistance patterns before formulating our treatment strategy.

Our current treatment of choice is to use ceftriaxone 250mg injection. This is the first and a grade "A" recommendation from the British Assocation for Sexual Health and HIV.

Appointments

To make a convenient appointment please call us on 08452601999 or just walk-in Monday to Friday. We are open between 8.30am to 7.00pm.

Costs will vary but in general we charge a consultation fee and then a further £55 for each combined chlamydia and gonorrhoea swab.
