Gonorrhea in Teens

Gonorrhea may be present but cause no symptoms. Or it can cause a discharge from the vagina, penis or rectum, painful or difficult urination or bowel movements, or a sore throat that doesn't go away.

The most common and serious complications happen in women. They include pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), tubal pregnancy and infertility. Men can also get infection of the prostate or epididymis.

Gonorrhea can be treated with antibiotics. Gonorrhea can also be carried in and affect the rectum. Gonorrhea at the time of childbirth can spread to the baby and cause severe eye infection.
