The most commonly reported signs of gonorrhea in both men and women are: Gonorrhea discharge that may be watery, creamy, slightly green or yellow, burning sensation while urinating, pain during sex, painful, burning and swollen glands in throat.
The visible symptoms of gonorrhea include redness and swelling of the genitals, and abnormal discharge that is yellow or green in color. That said, not everyone with an infection will display these symptoms. In fact, more than 50% of women with gonorrhea show no symptoms.
If you test positive for gonorrhea don’t stress, it is treatable with antibiotics. You will work with your doctor to create a comprehensive treatment plan including an antibiotic prescription. Your partner(s) should also start a course of antibiotics if they’ve been exposed. Antibiotics work in 95% of gonorrhea cases. Refrain from sexual activity until your infection has cleared and your doctor gives you the go ahead.
Gonorrhea typically does not have an odor. That said, some women report a mushroom-like smell in the genital area.
It’s a bad idea to try to wait out a gonorrhea infection for two main reasons. First, the infection may get worse and spread to other areas of your body causing worsening symptoms and lasting damage to your reproductive organs, including fatal blood and joint conditions. Second, the longer you have gonorrhea the more likely you are to spread it. Considering gonorrhea is easily treated with antibiotics, and you can get prescribed online, there really is no good reason to delay treatment.
Both of these STDs are caused by bacteria. They have many overlapping symptoms and are both treated with antibiotics. One is not worse than the other, they both have complications that can arise and should each be tested for as soon as you notice symptoms to determine the best course of treatment.
Gonorrhea, if left untreated, can spread to the blood and joints which can be fatal. It can also lead to complications such as increased risk of HIV which can also cause death. When treated promptly and effectively gonorrhea is not life threatening.
An online doctor can write you a lab referral so you can receive STD testing. This referral is required by most labs before you can receive testing. During your virtual visit, our PlushCare doctors will hear your symptoms and refer you to your closest lab. One your results come in the doctor will get in touch with you to give you an official diagnosis and treatment plan, including any necessary prescription medications.
In most cases gonorrhea is tested for using a urine sample. If you have symptoms of oral gonorrhea or gonorrhea of the eyes, swabs will be taken from the symptomatic areas.
