The symptoms experienced by men include burning feeling or pain at the time of urinating, urethral discharge and swelling in joints; while those experienced by women are burning or pain while urinating, painful sexual intercourse and vaginal itching.

Gonorrhoea is one of the fastest spreading sexually transmitted infections. It is contracted because of bacterium Nesseiria gonorrhoeae. Both men and women who are sexually active are vulnerable to this infection. If left untreated It can lead to infertility and can prove to be life threatening as it starts spreading to blood and joints. The common symptoms for both men and women are rashes, itching, bleeding, discharge and painful bowel movements. Men may also experience burning sensation while urinating or coloured discharge from the penis and in rare cases painful or swollen testicles Women can experience burning sensation during urination, vaginal bleeding between periods and increased vaginal discharge.
