  • Painful urination
  • Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis
  • Pain or bleeding during sex (in women)
  • Lower abdominal pain (in women)
  • Rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding (in men who have sex with men)
  • Painful or swollen testicles (in men)
    Sore throat (in people who have oral sex)

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It can infect the genital tract, rectum, and throat.

In many cases, gonorrhea has no symptoms, so people can be infected and spread the disease without knowing it. When symptoms do occur, they can include:

  • Painful urination
  • Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis
  • Pain or bleeding during sex (in women)
  • Lower abdominal pain (in women)
  • Rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding (in men who have sex with men)
  • Painful or swollen testicles (in men)
    Sore throat (in people who have oral sex)

Gonorrhea can be diagnosed with a urine test or a swab from the infected area. It is easily treated with antibiotics, but if left untreated, it can cause serious health problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy in women, and epididymitis in men.

To prevent the spread of gonorrhea and other STIs, it is important to practice safe sex by using condoms or other forms of barrier protection and to get tested regularly if you are sexually active. If you think you may have gonorrhea, it is important to see a healthcare provider for evaluation and treatment.
