What are the Symptoms of Gonorrhea?

Symptoms of gonorrhea usually appear within 2 to 14 days after infection. About 10-15% of men and about 80% of women may have no symptoms. They may be totally unaware that they have caught the infection. This increases the risk of transmission.

Swollen testicles
Anal itching and occasional painful bowel movements with fresh blood on the feces
Mouth sores

Symptoms of gonorrhea in women include-

A yellowish vaginal discharge
Redness and swelling of the genitals
Burning or itching of the vaginal area
Excessive bleeding during menstrual period or bleeding between periods.

Symptoms of rectal infection in both men and women include-
