Gonorrhoea Test & Treatment
Gonorrhoea is a highly contagious sexually-transmitted disease, often referred to as ‘the clap’. If it is not treated it can cause serious swelling of the testicles and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease in women.
In many cases there are no symptoms, however Gonorrhoea can cause a thick discharge from the sexual organs (in both men and women) and can produce other effects such as a sore throat. If you feel you have been exposed to Gonorrhoea or show any symptoms, you should consider getting tested.
A Gonorrhoea test at YourGP offers:
- Short-notice appointments
- Complete confidentiality and the ability to remain anonymous
- Fast turnaround of results
- Test carried out in an accredited laboratory
If you receive a positive result we are able to offer advice, support and any necessary treatment.
How It Works
When you arrive our practitioner will discuss your sexual history and take a urine or swab sample.
- Where appropriate a follow up telephone consultation will be arranged to discuss a positive or result of concern
We ask patients to phone for their results between 3.30pm and 4.30pm. We can e-mail your results after talking with you.
For Gonorrhoea, treatment is usually a single treatment (we recommend current and recent sexual partners are also tested).
£200 (includes consultation fee).
Treatment/medication costs will be extra.
(When you book your appointment we will ask for a £50 deposit to secure the appointment time. The £50 will be deducted from the cost of your consultation).
