What are the Symptoms of Gonorrhea?

About 10-15% of infected men and 80% of infected women may have no symptoms.

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.

Symptoms of gonorrhea in men include-

  • Painful and burning urination
  • Increased urinary frequency
  • Pus discharge from the penis
  • Pain in the testis
  • Swollen testicles
  • Anal itching and occasional painful bowel movements with fresh blood on the feces
  • Mouth sores
  • Sore throat (gonococcal pharyngitis)

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.
  • Painful and burning urination
  • Painful intercourse
  • Pain in the lower abdomen

Symptoms of rectal infection in both men and women include-

  • Pus like discharge from the anus
  • Pain in the anal region
  • Constipation and bleeding

If the infection spreads to the bloodstream, it may cause fever, joint pain and sparse peripheral rash.
