Valentine's Day Sex Alert! Super-gonorrhoea ALERT issued as ‘STI epidemic is getting closer’

A Super-Gonorrhoea alert has been issued in Britain with two cases reported – just before Valentine’s Day.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, many Brits will be looking to move things into the bedroom.

But frisky couples have been warned about a super STI on the rise.

Super-gonorrhoea caused widespread panic when it was discovered in a man who had contracted it in south-east Asia last year.

And two new cases have left doctors fearing it could be back.

Worryingly, one of the women who contracted super-gonorrhoea even caught it in Britain, leading to fears of an epidemic.

This Morning doctor Dr Sara Kayat has warned couples to take precautions ahead of the big day.

She revealed: “Last year were were informed of the first case of super gonorrhoea in the UK.

“A man had acquired it through a sexual encounter with a female in South-East Asia.
“This year we have had two new and unlinked sightings in heterosexual women from Britain.

“More worryingly, one of those cases was acquired in the UK and the other in Europe. The super STI is getting closer.”

The STI is transmitted through unprotected sex or genital contact.

If left untreated, it can lead to complications such as septicaemia, pelvic inflammatory disease, joint pains and even infertility.

Both women were successfully treated and cure of the STI.

Contact tracing was launched to find the source of the infection, believed to be linked with a holiday hotspot.

Both Dr Kayat and PHE have warned Bris to have regular STI check-ups and use condoms consistently with new and casual partners.
