Gonorrhea (informally called "the clap") is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that affects the genitalia, mouth, or rectal area. Gonorrhea is spread by engaging in unprotected vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected person. Although gonorrhea can affect males and females of any age, it is especially common among persons age 15 to 24.
In some cases, people with gonorrhea show no symptoms. The types of symptoms that can arise are different for males and females:
• Excessive vaginal discharge
• Vaginal bleeding
• Painful or burning sensation during urination
• Burning sensation during urination
• Genital discharge (white, yellow, or green)
• Pain in testicles
In addition, both men and women can experience rectal infections, symptoms of which include discharge, itching, bleeding, and painful defecation.
Yes! Gonorrhea can be cured with antibiotics. A successful gonorrhea cure does not, however, make you immune to the disease or prevent future infections.
Untreated gonorrhea can lead to damage of the skin, joints, or other organs of the body, as well as chronic fatigue. Women who do not seek treatment may become infertile. In rare cases, untreated gonorrhea causes lethal complications.
STD symptoms tend to overlap, making it difficult to diagnose a particular infection based on symptoms alone. Although we don't require testing to treat you today, you should still get a test of cure after completing gonorrhea treatment.
