Symptoms of Gonorrhea in Men vs. Women | STDs

September 2, 2019


Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection which is
completely curable, and most of the time in both men and women it is asymptomatic, which
means it has no symptoms. So the only really true way to know if you have gonorrhea weather
you’re male or female is to get tested for it, and the way to get tested for it is through
a urine or a swab test. If there are going to be symptoms usually they tend to be more
symptomatic in women than in men and it might be a discharge that you see, it may be a burning
when someone urinates, it might be a discomfort during penetration, and it might also be a
itching or burning sensation. Those are the things that you would look for. One important
thing to note is that although gonorrhea is completely curable with antibiotics, if left
undiagnosed and or untreated it can lead to infertility in both men and women. And finally,
Gonorrhea is very infectious so if your partner has it and you don’t use some sort of barrier
method when your sexually active, so a condom or a dental damn or a female condom, you’re
likely to get it from your partner. So if your partner gets diagnosed with gonorrhea
you should definitely be tested for it to make sure that you don’t have it, and if you
do have it that you both get treated at the time as it is completely curable.

    If it has no symptoms, then why even give a shit?

    Because it can lead to problems in the future if left untreated.

    I experience lots of pain in my pelvic area, lower back & legs. I thought it might be cancer or HIV. But it turns out I have gonorrhea. And for a long time now. My last partner was many years ago.
