Most females have mild or no symptoms. If symptoms do occur in females, they may include abnormal vaginal discharge, burning or pain during urination or bowel movement, lower abdominal pain, bleeding between menstrual periods or anal discomfort. Although many men may have no symptoms, symptoms may include discharge from the penis, burning or pain during urination or bowel movement or anal discomfort. If oral sex is performed, infections can also occur in the throat and often there are no symptoms associated with these infections. If untreated, gonorrhea infections can cause serious and permanent consequences, including infertility and other health problems in both females and males. Infection in newborn infants usually involves conjunctivitis.
