Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that you can get by having oral, anal, or vaginal sex with someone who has the infection. It can also be spread from mother to baby during a vaginal delivery. Fortunately, it is curable; antibiotics can be used to kill the bacteria that cause the condition.
Men usually have gonorrhea symptoms more often than women. However, both sexes may experience burning sensations when urinating and abnormal discharge (yellow vaginal discharge or white, yellow, or green pus from the penis).
