Gonorrhea… totally curable!

Gonorrhea is another very common STI, and most people don’t even know they have it because they never have any signs or symptoms. (This is why it’s super important to be tested if you are sexually active). Gonorrhea can be in the genitals, but also the throat and eyes.

People with a vagina may notice… People with a penis may notice…

Unusual bleeding Pain in the testicles

Super important detail: Gonorrhea is curable! Make gonorrhea “gonezo” with a trip to the clinic or nursing station for just one free dose of antibiotic pill. Sometimes people have gonorrhea and chlamydia at the same time. You have to make sure to give the treatment time to work before doing sex stuff again, and when the time is right use a condom to help prevent gonorrhea. Leaving this STI untreated in both guys and gals can lead to serious and sometimes permanent effects.
