I realized gonorrhea is a very common infectious disease. A friend explained how this is spread through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus. What surprised me was that ejaculation does not have to occur for gonorrhea to be transmitted or acquired. Since gonorrhea can also be spread from mother to baby during delivery, I think I have to hear more about this. I would appreciate any info about this sexually transmitted disease.

People who have had gonorrhea and received treatment may be infected again if they have sexual contact with infected. Any sexually active person can be infected with gonorrhea, so we should all take care about this. Although many men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all, some men have some signs or symptoms that appear two to five days after infection. Sometimes, symptoms can take as long as 30 days to appear. Symptoms and signs include a burning sensation when urinating, or a white, yellow, or green discharge from infected man’s penis. Sometimes men with gonorrhea get painful or swollen testicles, which is also sign there is something wrong. In women, the symptoms of gonorrhea are often mild, but most women who are infected have no symptoms, which is the biggest problem. Even when a woman has symptoms, they can be so non-specific as to be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection, so any problem should be carefully checked. The initial symptoms and signs in women include a painful or burning sensation when urinating, increased vaginal discharge, or vaginal bleeding between regular periods. Women with gonorrhea are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection.
