Gonorrhea in Females

Gonorrhea in Females | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

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
  • pelvic pain
  • rectal discomfort
  • sore throat
  • 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.
