Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease caused by bacteria called Neisseria. In women, the most common symptoms are vaginal discharge, pain or burning upon urination, and internal bleeding. In men, symptoms may include painful urination and swelling of the genitals. Men who are infected may have no symptoms and may not believe that they are infected. Most women who are infected have no symptoms. Most women who develop local symptoms do so within 10 days of infection.
