In some people it is possible that they have gonorrhea and are not aware of it. This is because the signs are so mild and negligible that the affected person does not get to know of the disease. And another strange part is that the individual without knowing that he is affected might pass on the disease to his partner.
Its symptoms may come and go without any treatment also. It is better to consult a doctor once an individual suspects gonorrhea and also to inform your sexual partner, so that an action can be taken accordingly. If left untreated, gonorrhea can cause many health related issues.
Gonorrhea can sometimes be dormant as it takes some time to show its signs and symptoms. And later when its symptoms are discovered or become noticeable, it might be mistreated as something else initially.
Signs in men and women are different. The signs in men are quite severe and they cannot refrain themselves from consulting a physician soon. While in women, symptoms are mild. Men usually show signs of having painful testicles. If this condition is not treated, infertility would be the outcome. Gonorrhea can even lead to pelvic inflammatory disease in women. This includes a combination of fever, abdominal and chronic pelvic pain, and infertility. Having gonorrhea can bring complicated conditions to people, and in men epididymitis would be one condition brought up because of gonorrhea.
