What Is Gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea Testing Gonorrhea (Neisseria gonorrhoeae.) is a sexually transmitted bacterial infection that tends to attack the mucous membranes of the body. Gonorrhea is caused by the growth and proliferation of the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The disease can survive in the eye, rectum, mouth, penis, throat, or vagina. This means that it can be transmitted through any variety of sexual contact.


It is the second most common sexually transmitted disease in the U.S.; the first being Chlamydia. The bacteria reside in the warm and moist body cavities of both men and women and are highly contagious. Anatomically, women are at a higher risk of infection. Gonorrhea is the most common cause of female infertility and is also known as "the clap" or "the drip". Only small percentage of women infected with the disease show any symptoms, leaving them and their partners, unaware of their condition. If left untreated, gonorrhea patients can develop pelvic inflammatory disease or PID (women), or an inflammation of the epididymis, prostate gland, or urethral structure (men), all of which are far more difficult to treat.

Signs and symptoms of Gonorrhea infection may include:

  • Painful urination
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Vaginal discharge in women
  • Discharge from the penis in men
  • Painful sexual intercourse in women
  • Bleeding between periods and after sex in women
  • Testicular pain in men
  • Early-stage Gonorrhea infections often cause few or no signs and symptoms. When signs or symptoms occur, they usually start one to three weeks after exposure to Gonorrhea. Even when signs and symptoms occur, they're often mild and passing, making them easy to overlook.
