It is important to know that infection with gonorrhea occurs during unprotected sexual contact with a sick person. In rare cases, there is gonococcal conjunctivitis in newborns, in this case, infection occurs during childbirth, from an infected mother. The incubation period of gonorrhea usually lasts 2–5 days for men, and 5–10 days for women. First of all, the symptoms of gonorrhea depend on which organ is affected by gonococci. As a rule, urinary organs are affected.
The first sign of disease in men is purulent urethritis - inflammation of the mucous membrane of the urethra, accompanied by yellowish-white secretions, pain and burning sensation when urinating. After 1 - 2 days, the course of the disease becomes aggravated: the urethral opening swells, yellow-brown discharge with an unpleasant odor appears. Subsequently, they become thicker, ulcers often appear on the urethra, there is hyperemia and swelling.With late diagnosis and treatment, the patient has difficulty urinating, the urine becomes turbid, with blood. Often, the temperature rises, there is pain in the lower abdomen and bowel movements.
It should be borne in mind that the symptoms of gonorrheal urethritis in women are usually less pronounced, and therefore are not always adequately evaluated. For example, a woman may mistakenly take a yellowish-white discharge from the vagina for thrush and associate pain during urination with cystitis. With asymptomatic course of the disease in the first place it is necessary to pay attention to frequent urination and the appearance of vaginal discharge. As a rule, gonorrhea in women is a multi-focal process that affects the internal divisions of the genitals. At the same time, there is inflammation and swelling of the cervix, on which purulent and muco-purulent discharges are observed. The danger of the course of the disease in women lies in the fact that the discharge is not always visible during external examination, and therefore can remain without attention for a long time.
