Gonorrhea is spread during vaginal, anal and oral sex.
Gonorrhea can cause infections on the penis, in the rectum, anus, vagina, and throat.
Men might not have symptoms. Or they might feel burning when peeing, have painful or swollen testicles, or see discharge from the penis that’s white, yellow, or green.
Women usually don’t have symptoms, but might have pain or burning when peeing, see more vaginal discharge, or bleed between periods.
Men and women with rectal infections might not have symptoms. Or they might see rectal discharge or blood, feel soreness, anal itching, and have pain when pooping.
