Gonorrhea Symptoms

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) some men and most women infected with gonorrhea do not show symptoms. The CDC states on their website:

Most women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they are often mild and can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Women with gonorrhea are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, even if they don’t have any symptoms.

Symptoms in women can include:

  • Painful or burning sensation when urinating;
  • Increased vaginal discharge;
  • Vaginal bleeding between periods.

Men who do have symptoms, may have:

  • A burning sensation when urinating;
  • A white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis;
  • Painful or swollen testicles (although this is less common).

Get Tested For Free

If you are sexually active,  it is a good idea to get tested regularly , especially if your partner has not recently been tested or if you have had multiple partners. A simple urine test is usually all it takes to tell you whether or not you have the infection. If you test positive, it can be treated with a course of antibiotics.
