Gonorrhea in Females
What are the signs and symptoms of the infection?
Most women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms. Women who have symptoms may notice the following:
abnormal menstrual bleeding
abnormal vaginal discharge
dyspareunia, or pain with intercourse
eye pain and discharge
frequent or painful urination
vaginal bleeding after sexual intercourse or exercise
Gonorrhea that has spread to other parts of the body may cause a rash and fever. The person may have painful, swollen joints. Other symptoms are specific to the body part that is infected. An infection in the heart, for example, may cause heart valve problems and impaired blood flow.
