What is gonorrhea?

This is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacteria N. gonorrhoeae.

Symptoms of gonorrhea

  • Redness or swelling of the urethra - the opening where urine exits from

  • Decreased urine volume with painful urination

  • Pain at the start of passing urine

  • itch or discomfort in the urethra - the opening where urine exits from

  • Pain when passing urine

  • Been sexually active with multiple partners during the past 1 month

  • Swollen lymph nodes, usually small swellings at the neck, armpits, groin and behind the ears

Questions your doctor may ask to check for gonorrhea

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose gonorrhea

  • Do you have pus coming out from urethra (the opening where urine passes through)?

  • Do you have redness or swelling around the urethral opening (where urine passes from)

  • Do you have painful urination and passing less urine?

  • Do you have pain when you start passing urine?

  • Do you have any itch or discomfort in the urethra (the opening where urine exits from)?
