Both men and women who are engaging actively into sexual activities are at risk of contracting infections. In most cases, gonorrhea is more likely to be the disease they can be infected with if unprotected. Gonorrhea is preponderantly affecting men as compared to women who are less likely to have an infection. Moreover, not only being the most usual sexually transmitted disease among men, gonorrhea is considered to be contracted by men usually between the ages of 21 to 25 since this is the time most men are beginning to explore their sexual behaviors.

The signs and symptoms is primarily the basis of which men can detect if their infected or not. Although manifestation usually occurs between two to five days or even a week after in most cases, men who are sometimes asymptomatic take it for granted.

The symptoms are at first mild to moderate but if no proper actions or treatment is done, then the worse scenarios will be experienced by the patient. Doctor’s diagnosis is established on the basis of the symptoms given by the patient. Since most men are stubborn in giving a precise history of the illness, most often the doctors have a hard time creating a treatment plan.

Gonorrhea is a disease that breaks its symptoms in various ways depending on gender. Since most men with gonococcal infection are symptom-free in their first few days, laboratory tests are seldom done immediately. But as the infection progresses, they become symptomatic and that is the time men start complaining.

Symptoms men usually complain of are felt upon urination and ejaculation. There is a burning sensation, itchiness, and sometimes a painful state of the testicles. Since the infection usually occurs on the vessels in which the urine and the sperm pass through, the urethra might be swollen.

When the cloudy and dense fluid or discharge is observed by the patient, this is the time that the patient had more intense itchiness and since it is usually fluxing, the infection is dangerous.

Men usually have more urination since the urge is somewhat undistracted. When complications occur, men’s prostates are usually infected as well as the glands near the infection. Pain is then more intense and swelling of these glands is felt and even palpated. Rectal and oral infection also occurs. There is also swelling due to itching, as well as soreness and even bleeding.

Most often asymptomatic among men, gonorrhea not given early attention will be severe. Men who are more prone to this infection require immediate treatment.
