Gonorrhoea is not as common as Chlamydia. It is passed between people through:
- Unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex
- Sharing sex toys which have not been washed
- From a pregnant woman to her baby.
There are hardly any symptoms of Gonorrhoea.
- An unusual discharge from vagina, which may be yellow or green in color.
- Pain while passing out urine.
- Bleeding between periods.
- Pain in lower abdominal area.
- An unusual discharge from the tip of the penis which may be white, yellow or green.
- Burning sensation while passing out urine.
- Swelling of the foreskin.
- Pain in testicles.
It is important to receive timely treatment for gonorrhea as soon as possible. If the treatment is delayed, then a person may have to face some serious health problems. Gonorrhoea is treated with a single dose of antibiotics.
