Although it can be seen in both women and men, it is more common in men. It is easier to transmit from male to female, especially in young women and men. Gonorrhea is an infection caused by a sexually transmitted bacterium called Neisseria gonorrhea that affects both men and women. It often causes an infection in the urethra, rectum or throat. In women, it can also cause infection in the cervix and tubes.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF Gonorrhea?
The bacterium that causes gonorrhea is transmitted only from person to person by direct contact and cannot live outside the body. The bacterium that causes gonorrhea needs moisture, so it cannot survive in a dry environment. Usually gonorrhea infection does not cause any symptoms. However, the symptoms can affect many areas of the body, but are usually seen in the genital area.
Gonorrhea can also affect these parts of the body:
Rectum: Signs and symptoms include anal itching, pus-like discharge from the rectum, bright red blood spots on toilet paper, and difficulty urinating.
Eyes: Gonorrhea affecting your eyes can cause eye pain, sensitivity to light, and pus-like discharge from one or both eyes.
Throat: Signs and symptoms of a throat infection can include a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes in the neck.
Joints: If one or more joints become infected with bacteria (septic arthritis), the affected joints may become hot, red, swollen and extremely painful, especially during movement.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF WAIST COLD?
