Learn more about the condition and how GetCareMD can help:
Gonorrhea is a fairly common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that affects both men and women.
The gonorrhea bacteria — known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae— are typically passed from one person to another via vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse.
Its symptoms can show up in different areas of the body. In certain cases, gonorrhea infection may not cause any symptoms at all.
Getting yourself tested is not a prerequisite to availing a gonorrhea consultation online.
However, we strongly encourage you to get tested, as it will enable us to give you the most effective treatment and care possible.

Symptoms of Gonorrhea

In men, gonorrhea infection may cause:

  • Pain or difficulty in urination
  • Abnormal discharge from the penis
  • Inflammation or pain in one testicle

In women, common symptoms of gonorrhea include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pain or difficulty in urination
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding between periods
  • Abdominal or pelvic pain

In both men and women, symptoms of gonorrhea can also show up elsewhere in the body:

  • You may experience eye pain, increased sensitivity to light, and pus-like discharge from either one or both eyes.
  • You may get a sore throat or swollen, painful lymph nodes.
  • You might face difficulty in bowel movements or notice blood in stool, a discharge from the rectum, and anal itching.

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, schedule an online consultation for gonorrhea today.

Typical Treatments Include

Am I At Risk for Gonorrhea?

If you’re looking into an online consultation for gonorrhea, but aren’t sure whether you’ve contracted gonorrhea or not, consider the following questions:

  • Are you sexually active?
  • Are you currently having sex with multiple people?
  • Does your partner have sexual relations with other people?
  • Have you had gonorrhea or another STD in the past?
  • Are you a man who frequently has unprotected sex with other men?

If your answer to one or more of these questions is ‘yes’, then you should get tested for gonorrhea and follow up with a gonorrhea consultation online.

Complications of Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea isn’t incurable.
However, if you delay treatment, it can cause severe complications.
It can affect the testicles, uterus, and fallopian tubes, resulting in infertility.
It can make you more vulnerable to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which may lead to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
If you have gonorrhea and are currently pregnant, it could infect your baby too.
Babies can become infected with gonorrhea during birth, as they pass through the birth canal. In babies, gonorrhea may result in sores and infections, as well as blindness.
If you suspect that you’ve been infected with gonorrhea, leaving it untreated can have disastrous results. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Get tested today, and book an online consultation for gonorrhea.
