Men and women alike, who are sexually active without protection, are both prone to infection. The most common is gonorrhea. Although predominantly in men, this sexually transmitted disease is widely considered as a threat to women also but men are still far more at risk. This disease is most often called as men’s disease.

The objective basis to certify this disease usually as observed and translated by the primary physician not as perceived by the patient is of vital importance for the treatment of gonorrhea signs. The physicians created their diagnosis based on the signs of disease to the patient. The mere fact that the symptoms are typically easy to detect by the patient, still they rely on the gonorrhea signs being observed by their doctor.

Gonorrhea is an STD that discloses its signs in different manner accordingly and differently based on gender and its point of existence on the body. Even most of the men with gonorrhea signs may be symptom-free, most often one or two signs appear only once infected within five days. In some cases, signs manifest only after a month.

Generally, gonorrhea signs include or a white to yellow, and/or green fluid material from the penis. The discharge is usually thick. A few men with gonorrhea have swollen or puffed testicles. The urine is cloudy in most cases. The enlarged groin glands is also visible that causes pain. The bladder, testicle and prostate are usually inflamed also.

In women, the gonorrhea signs are often moderate in degree, but still these women who are infected have no immediate signs. Whenever a woman had the sign, it can be not particularly pertaining to gonorrhea as it may be mistaken for other genitourinary diseases or other vaginal infection.

The initial gonorrhea signs in women include, increased amount of vaginal discharge than normal that is also yellowish to green and thick, or vaginal bleeding in between menstrual periods. Women with gonorrhea are at danger of developing severe complications from the infection, no matter what there is the presence or asperity of symptoms. There is also Bartholin’s gland inflammation as well as lumps within the vaginal entrance.

Gonorrhea signs of rectal infection in both men and women may include discharge, swelling due to anal itching, soreness, and/or bleeding. Sometimes oral and rectal infection may exhibit no signs as well as no symptoms at all. Blood in the stool may also manifest.

Typically mild in signs, gonorrhea if left untreated will develop severe signs as well as symptoms in the long run and the infected person is now the carrier.
