Our team of experts will provide you with the best possible care so you can feel confident in your decision to get treated.

What Exactly Is Gonorrhea?

Both men and women can get gonorrhea. It is also called the “clap” or “drip,” which is spread through sexual contact with an infected person. The bacteria can be transmitted through contact with infected bodily fluids, such as semen, vaginal fluid, or blood.


Gonorrhea is a serious infection that can cause infertility in both men and women. If left untreated, gonorrhea can lead to more severe health problems such as pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, and even infertility.


SafeLabCentre offers fast and affordable testing for gonorrhea. We use the latest technology to ensure that your results are accurate and reliable.

What Causes Gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection that can be infected by several types of bacteria. The most common type is Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a bacterium that can grow and multiply easily in mucus membranes of the body. 


Gonorrhea bacteria are microscopic and can grow in warm, moist areas such as the reproductive tract. This includes the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus in women and the urethra in both men and women. The bacteria can also develop in the mouth, throat, and anus.

How Common Are Gonorrhea Infections?

Gonorrhea is a very common infectious disease. In the U.S., each year, about 700,000 people are infected with gonorrhea. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that this number could be as high as 2.86 million if testing and reporting were more complete. Gonorrhea is prevalent among young adults, with the highest rates of infection occurring in those between the ages of 15 and 24. The CDC suggests that all sexually active individuals be tested for gonorrhea at least once a year and more frequently if they have multiple partners or a history of STDs. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential to preventing serious health complications from this disease.

Gonorrhea Signs and Symptoms

Many people do not show any signs of Gonorrhea. When symptoms do occur, they usually appear within 2 to 10 days after exposure, but it can take up to 30 days for symptoms to show. This includes the following:

Symptoms of Gonorrhea in Women

  • Greenish yellow or whitish vaginal discharge
  • Lower abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Burning when urinating
  • Bleeding between periods 
  • Spotting after intercourse
  • Swollen glands


Many women with gonorrhea discharge think they have a yeast infection and self-treat with yeast infection medications purchased over-the-counter. This can make it difficult to later diagnose and treat the gonorrhea infection. If you think you might have gonorrhea, it is important to call us at SafeLabCentre so that you can get the treatment you need.

Symptoms of Gonorrhea in Men

  • Greenish yellow or whitish discharge from the penis
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Painful or swollen testicles
  • Swelling (inflammation) of the foreskin


Symptoms in men usually appear two to fourteen days after infection. Sometimes they are so mild that they go unnoticed. With early diagnosis and treatment, men can make a full recovery with no long-term consequences.

What Happens if I Don’t Get Tested for Gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that can cause serious and permanent problems in both men and women if left untreated.

Gonorrhea Infection in Women

Women are more likely than men to develop serious health problems from gonorrhea, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is an infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries that can damage these reproductive organs and lead to infertility. Untreated gonorrhea infection can also increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy, a dangerous condition in which a fertilized egg implants outside of the uterus.

Gonorrhea Infection in Men

Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection that can cause a range of symptoms in men. It can cause epididymitis, a painful condition of the testicles that can sometimes lead to infertility. In addition to affecting the prostate, gonorrhea can cause scarring within the urethra, making urination difficult. Without prompt treatment, these complications can become very serious.


Gonorrhea can also affect the blood and joints, and this condition can be life-threatening. People with gonorrhea can more easily contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. People with HIV infections and gonorrhea are more likely than people with HIV infection alone to transmit HIV to someone else. Treatment for gonorrhea usually includes antibiotics. 


If you are infected with gonorrhea, you should avoid sexual contact until treated. You should also be tested for other STIs.


If you think you may have been exposed to gonorrhea, it is important to contact us at SafeLabCentre right away. Most people recover completely from gonorrhea with treatment, but it can cause serious health problems if it is not treated promptly.
