Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection transmitted through vaginal secretions or semen.

You can catch gonorrhea by engaging in the following activities:

  • Oral sex
  • Vaginal sex
  • Anal sex
How do you catch gonorrhea Gonorrhea (which is also known as 'the clap') is essentially a bacterial infection that is often passed on through sexual contact.

Because the reproductive tract in both men and women is a fairly warm and moist area, this provides a perfect environment for bacteria like gonorrhea to grow.

In the United States, gonorrhea infection rates are particularly high among sexually-active teenagers who engage in unprotected intercourse.

For this reason, the federal government spends a significant amount of money raising awareness about the importance of using condoms and practicing safe sex.

How do I know if I've got gonorrhea?
If you've engaged in unprotected sex with someone, then there's a chance you may have been exposed to gonorrhea.

However, the problem with diagnosing infection is that symptoms may not appear until the bacteria has really set in.

  • In men, gonorrhea manifests itself as pain whilst urinating, discharge from the penis, and pain around the testicles.
  • In women, gonorrhea symptoms include vaginal discharge and bleeding between periods.
