Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are sexually transmitted infections (STD) that can infect both men and women. I can cause infection of the genitals, rectum and throat. It is a very common infection, especially among young people ages 15-24 years.
You can get tested by your doctor or you can be treated if you have known exposure. We have a physician available to discuss options if you are unsure if you should be tested or simply treated.
Some men with gonorrhea or chlamydia may have no symptoms at all. However, men who do have symptoms, may have:
A burning sensation when urinating;
A white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis;
Painful or swollen testicles (although this is less common).
Most women with gonorrhea or chlamydia do not have any symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they are often mild and can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Women with gonorrhea are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, even if they don’t have any symptoms.
Symptoms in women can include:
Painful or burning sensation when urinating;
Increased vaginal discharge;
Vaginal bleeding between periods.
Rectal infections may either cause no symptoms or cause symptoms in both men and women that may include:
Painful bowel movements.
You should wait seven days after finishing all medications before having sex. To avoid getting infected with gonorrhea or Chlamydia again or spreading to your partner(s), you and your sex partner(s) should avoid having sex until you have each completed treatment. If you’ve had gonorrhea and took medicine in the past, you can still get infected again if you have unprotected sex with a person who has gonorrhea or chlamydia.
