This is a bacterium-caused disease that can be passed from one person to another sexually. Both men and women can be affected by gonorrhea. Most cases of gonorrhea affect the urethra, rectum, or throat. In females, gonorrhea has the ability to infect the cervix.
Intimate activity, such as Intimate interaction, is a common source of gonorrhea. It's also possible for an infected mother to pass her infection on to her baby during birthing. Gonorrhea is most commonly related with ocular issues in newborns.
The majority of the time, gonorrhea infection has no symptoms. The symptoms of this condition, on the other hand, might manifest themselves in various places of the body, but they are most commonly discovered in the genital tract.
The following are the signs and symptoms that men with gonorrhea experience:
Urination that hurts
A pus discharge from the pênis
One of the testicles is inflamed or swollen.
The following are some of the indications and symptoms of gonorrhea infection in women:
Discharge from the vaginal area has increased.
Urinating in discomfort
Bleeding after vaginal delivery
Discomfort in the pelvis or abdomen
Gonorrhea can also cause problems in the following areas:
Rectum. Anal irritation, rectal discharge, blood spots on toilet paper, and straining during bowel movements are all possible symptoms.
Eyes. Gonorrhea can affect one or both of your eyes, causing pain, sensitivity to light, and a discharge that appears like pus from the eye.
The pharynx. A sore throat and swollen lymph nodes in the neck are common symptoms of a throat infection.
Joints. Septic arthritis occurs when one or more joints become infected with bacteria and become warm, red, swollen, and intensely painful, especially when moved.
When is the ideal time to visit your doctor?
When you notice any troubling signs or symptoms, such as a burning sensation when you urinate, or a pus-like discharge from your penis, vagina, or rectum, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor.
If you or your spouse has been diagnosed with gonorrhea, you should see your doctor as well. It's possible that you won't notice any indications or symptoms that prompt you to seek medical help. In spite of the fact that symptoms often disappear, it is still possible to reinfect your partner if you do not get him or her treated.
