Safe sex reminder as antibiotic resistant gonorrhoea investigations continue

Safe sex reminder as antibiotic resistant gonorrhoea investigations continue

Public Health England (PHE) is issuing a reminder to the public to practise safe sex by using a condom with new or casual partners.

The call comes as an increase in antibiotic resistant cases of gonorrhoea continues, a further sign of the very real threat of antibiotic resistance to our ability to treat infections.

Finding this sort of extensively drug resistant gonorrhoea in the UK serves as an important reminder of the need to practice safer sex. This includes using condoms consistently and correctly with all new and casual sexual partners. Anyone with symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or who is concerned they may have an STI should seek advice from their sexual health clinic.
