• What are the symptoms of gonorrhea? The symptoms of genital gonorrhea differ in men and women. The cervix is primarily affected in women diagnosed with gonnorhea. However, untreated gonorrhea can spread to the uterus and fallopian tubes. Unfortunately, the symptoms of gonorrhea in women often go unnoticed. When women do experience symptoms, they may include: * abnormal bleeding * a burning sensation during urination * vaginal discharge * general irritation of the outer area of the vagina So how can you know if a man is possibly infected with gonnorhea? About 20 percent of the time, you won't see anything that you can recognize as a symptom of gonorrhea in a man. However, when symptoms of gonorrhea are present in men they can include: * a yellow pus-like discharge from the tip of the penis * stinging during urination * frequent urination * blood in the urine * swelling of the glands in the groin * the head of the penis may turn red When either women or men experience gonorrhea infection in the throat or rectum, symptoms such as pain, swelling, and discharge often occur. What are the treatments for gonorrhea? The CDC recommends several treatment options which include: * Cefixime 400 mg orally in a single dose, * Ceftriaxone 125 mg IM in a single dose, * Ciprofloxacin 500 mg orally in a single dose, * Ofloxacin 400 mg orally in a single dose, PLUS Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose, * Doxycycline 100 mg orally twice a day for 7 days Patients who are unable to tolerate these treatments can be offered alternative pharmaceutical treatments.
