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

What are the signs and symptoms of the infection?

About half of the men with gonorrhea have no symptoms. Those who have symptoms may notice the following:

  • discharge of pus from the penis
  • eye pain and discharge
  • frequent or painful urination
  • pus-filled discharge from the penis
  • rectal discomfort
  • sore throat
  • 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.
