Gonorrhea is a common sexually-transmitted infection (STI), also called a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) and known by some as “the clap.” Gonorrhea is caused by a bacterium that likes warm, moist areas. It grows in the urethra in men and grows in a number of places in the reproductive tract of women.
Most men infected with Gonorrhea experience a burning sensation when they urinate and sometimes a white, yellow or green discharge from the penis. Some men get painful or swollen testicles. Symptoms usually begin to appear anywhere from one to 14 days after being infected. Most women who are infected with gonorrhea don’t experience any symptoms at all.
Harm From Gonorrhea
If untreated, gonorrhea can cause very serious problems and permanent damage. Untreated gonorrhea can make both men and women sterile. In men, it can cause a painful condition called epididymitis which creates pus-filled sacs in the scrotum.
It’s common for people infected with gonorrhea to also be infected with chlamydia, and vice-versa. You can get gonorrhea more than once if you have unprotected sex with someone who passes it to you.
