Gonorrhea is transmitted through sex, either vaginal sex, oral sex, or anal sex. Gonorrhea is treated with antibiotics and the antibiotics will cure the disease and the symptoms will go away. The antibiotics are inexpensive and usually there is no need to return for a reexamination or retreatment. Once you treat it and the symptoms go away, its gone. The complications of untreated Gonorrhea in women include infertility as well as it can also cause pelvic inflammatory disease. In men it can cause pain in the testes or also known as epididimitis. In both men and women the organism can go to the bloodstream and cause further complications. Those persons who should be tested for Gonorrhea include persons who are sexually active and who are not using protection or those persons who come in with symptoms; with women, with a vaginal discharge and with men, with penile discharges.
