It is never simple to cope with a Sexually Transmitted Disease and the main reason is the embarrassment. Especially if that infection is gonorrhea. This is an infection that is spread by bacteria known as Neisseria gonorrheoae. The bacteria can infect you through oral, sexual or anal intercourse. The condition affects both men and women differently. If you are a man and think you may have contracted this infection, mentioned below are gonorrhea symptoms in men to watch out for.
Passing urine turns into a very painful process for men who are suffering from gonorrhea. Pain while urinating might scare a lot of men, but there can be other equally scary symptoms. Epididymitis is another symptom of gonorrhea.
Men who have epididymitis have to deal with swelling in their prostate and testicles. Testicles will feel pain and become tender. In fact, the condition may lead to infertility as well in men. If you do not take measures to eradicate this disease as soon as possible, it is possible that you will not be able to have kids in the future. A man with epididymitis may also feel some pain during intercourse or find it hard to wear tight clothing. Men suffering from gonorrhea sometimes discharge green or white colored fluid from their penis.
Oral sex can also lead to gonorrhea manifesting itself in the form of an infection in the larynx. Soreness in the throat and discharge on the tonsils is common in this situation. If the infection has been caused because of anal sex then the anus will have some discharge along with itchiness.
Gonorrhea can be treated very easily in the early stages, and if you are suffering from any of the symptoms mentioned above you must go for treatment as soon as possible. When gonorrhea is detected then the patient is put on a does of antibiotics as the treatment.
