What exactly is Gonorrhea and why test for it? Gonorrhea which is more commonly known as the drip or "the clap", is a sexually transmitted (STD) contagious disease. Both men and women can get gonorrhea. The disease is spread by infection, usually with people who have multiple sexual partners. Gonorrhea is basically a bacteria which grows and multiplies in the membranes of the body and in warm, moist areas of men's and women's reproductive tracts that can include:- 

  • The cervix - opening to the womb
  • The uterus
  • Fallopian tubes
  • The urethra
  • Mouth
  • Throat
  • Anus

Gonorrhea is a very common infectious disease. Statistics have shown that sexually active teenagers have one of the highest rates of reported infections.

How do you know if you have Gonorrhea? Not everyone affected with gonorrhea may realize they are infected with the disease. This can be very tricky when it comes to seeking treatment. It might take around 10-30 days to develop and show signs of the following:-

Signs & Symptoms of Gonorrhea in women:

  • Vaginal discharge that can be yellow, green or white
  • Burning sensation while urinating
  • Bleeding in between periods
  • A swollen vulva
  • Lower abdominal or pelvic pain
  • The throat inflamed or burning from oral sex
  • Conjunctivitis, red itchy eyes


Women with some of the symptoms above may think they have a yeast infection. Over the counter yeast infection treatments are not for gonorrhea. Using a cost-effective home gonorrhea test kit is the best way to see if you have this sexually transmitted contagious disease.

Signs & Symptoms of Gonorrhea in men:

  • Yellow, green or whitish penis discharge
  • Burning sensation while urinating
  • Painful or swollen testicles
  • Burning in the throat from having oral sex
  • Swollen throat glands associated with oral sex

To reduce the risk of catching Gonorrhea, it's important to protect yourself when having sex. Make sure you:-

  • Use condoms correctly every time you have sex
  • Try and limit the number of sex partners
  • Avoid sexual contact with anyone who may be at high risk of infection such as individuals working in the sex industry
