Gonorrhea

At A Glance:

One of the most curable and common STDs is Gonorrhea. A certain type of bacteria causes Gonorrhea. It can be passed to other people by sexual intercourse (anal, oral or vaginal sex). There are approximately 700,000 new infections of Gonorrhea every year in the United States, estimates the CDC.

What You Need To Know:

Because people infected with gonorrhea can be infected with chlamydia at the same time, often doctors will recommend the treatment for both of these infections at the same time. That means you may take an additional antibiotic. It could be either cefixine (orally in liquid or pill form) or ceftriaxone as an individual shot.

Symptoms:

Gonorrhea can be a silent STD, meaning that you can have it and not even be aware. This is especially true in men, as well as most women.

The symptoms of Gonorrhea in men will usually reveal themselves a few days after infection. They can be: odd discharge from the penis, pain during urination, and itching. In women, symptoms are often a bit more mild.

Mostly, women who have Gonorrhea will not have symptoms, however, if they do show up, they would be: fever, pain during urination, unusual discharge from the vagina, vomiting, stomach pain and bleeding between periods.

How Do I Get Tested For Syphilis?

A urine test called the NAA Test (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) is highly recommended by the CDC, because it is so accurate. This test is offered in the Gonorrhea & Gonorrhea Panel as well as the eight Test Panel for Gonorrhea. There is no swabbing involved with this test, you simply have to pee inside of a cup.
