Better2Know provides private Gonorrhoea testing throughout the Middle East. We have same or next day availability at STI clinics in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI). Early detection is key to ensuring that you receive the treatment you need to maintain your personal health. Better2Know also offers a range of confidential STI screens across the Middle East that include private testing for Gonorrhoea.

Symptoms and Transmission

Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection that can affect your genital tract, as well as your throat or rectum. Thorough testing is important, so your doctor can identify the type of treatment you need. Gonorrhoea can be passed on through vaginal, anal, penile or oral sexual contact.

Gonorrhoea can cause infertility and pelvic inflammatory disease if left untreated

In the initial stages of infection, symptoms can be subtle or non-existent. However, when symptoms are present, they can include:

  • Unusual discharge
  • Burning or pain when urinating
  • Inflammation, swelling or pain around genitals or rectum
  • General genital or rectal discomfort such as itching, redness or bleeding
  • Abnormal bleeding (in between periods, after sex, or in urine)
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Sore throat.

Undiagnosed Gonorrhoea infections can be extremely detrimental to your sexual health. Without appropriate treatment, women can suffer from pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, or ectopic pregnancies, miscarriages and premature births. Men could experience inflammation of the genital tract and loss of fertility.

Better2Know’s Gonorrhoea Testing Options

Better2Know’s Gonorrhoea testing has a 14-day period of incubation. This is the time between an incident of concern and your Better2Know STI test. If you test before this time has elapsed, it may harm the accuracy of your results.

Better2Know’s variety of STI screens combine discreet testing for Gonorrhoea with tests for other sexually transmitted infections, to give you peace of mind with regards to your sexual health status. Some suggested STI screens are:

We also offer Gonorrhoea throat and rectal swabs for those who are experiencing symptoms or are worried about infections in those areas. Simply notify your Better2Know advisor upon booking your appointment and they will make the appropriate arrangements for you.
