Here are some unsexy facts about getting it on. STD rates are at an all-time high. For guys, gonorrhoea is becoming increasingly common. Thankfully, gonorrhoea is treatable with antibiotics and will clear up within several days of being treated.
Left untreated, gonorrhoea infections could spread to the scrotum, prostate, testes, or more rarely, your blood. Once it spreads, the infection could cause scarring in the epididymis, a part of the testicle that stores and carries sperm, and possibly result in infertility.
Here are four gonorrhoea symptoms you should watch out for :
1 Discharge from your penis.
Discharge is by far the most common sign of the infection. Discharge may be thin or thick, depending on the guy. Guys may experience discharge within two weeks of being infected. Although colour and consistency vary, no amount of discharge is normal. You should head to the doctor if you experience a discharge of any sort.
2 Your butt itches.
Gonorrhea can also affect the rectum, which may cause anal itching and discharge or blood. Some people may experience diarrhoea and pain when going to the bathroom.
3 A sore throat.
It’s important to know that you can get gonorrhoea from oral sex too. Many people who develop gonorrhoea in their throat don’t have symptoms. However, some may experience a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes.
4 Pain or swelling.
Some guys may not have initial symptoms when they contract gonorrhoea, But once the infection spreads to surrounding areas, like the scrotum and testicle, guys could develop an inflamed epididymis, which would be accompanied by groin pain.
Don’t ignore these signs and do hard guy hard guy. E no need.
