Gonorrhea commonly asked questions

What is Gonorrhea?

It is the second most common sexually transmitted disease (STD). It's caused by Neisseria gonorrhea, which is a bacterium that easily grows and multiplies in warm, moist areas of your body, such as the urethra. In women, the bacterium can be found in the reproductive tract (fallopian tubes, uterus, and cervix). It can also grow in the eyes, mouth, throat, and anus. It's sometimes called "the clap" or "the drip" and it affects about 700,000 women and men in the United States every year.

How is it spread?

It is transmitted from individual to individual through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sexual activity with an infected person. It can be transmitted to the mouth or eyes, if a person touches an infected vagina or penis, and then touching their mouth or eyes. It is not necessary to be symptomatic to spread gonorrhea.

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of Gonorrhea in men include: a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis, painful urination and testicular discomfort.

Women can experience symptoms such as painful urination, vaginal discharge, bleeding between periods, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

Oftentimes Gonorrhea presents no symptoms, especially in women.

What is the incubation period?

It usually appears in 2 - 5 days after the contact but may take up to a month to develop. Remember up to half of the people do not exhibit symptoms at all.

Who should get tested and how often?

All sexually active people need to get annual Gonorrhea test.

More frequent testing(every 6 months) is necessary if you have a new sex partner, have multiple sex partners, do not use a condom during sex, homosexual male or have been previously diagnosed with STD.

How is the test done?

Testing is done through the urine sample, which will be used to determine the Gonorrhea bacterium in your body.

How fast will I get my results?

Test results will be ready in 3-5 business days.

What if the result of the test is positive?

Do not worry if you test positive there is an easy treatment for it.

You can be given either an injection of Ceftriaxone (Rocephin) or a single dose of Cefixime taken by mouth. If you're allergic to either one of the previously mentioned medications, then you will be prescribed a single dose(2 gm) of Azithromycin (Zithromax). Sexual activity must be stopped until you're no longer infected to avoid passing the disease to other people. All previous partners need to be notified so they get treated.
