Pussy discharge: You can have pus from the urethra in the urine. Also pussy discharge from the urinary opening or vagina which can mix with urine. There is usually some stinging with urination. Gonorrhea can also cause urethral strictures (narrowings) in males which in turn can obstruct the urinary stream.

Probably not..., but: Gonorrhea is usually referred to urethral infection in males or genital tract in females by neisseria gonnorhoeae although it may infect other parts of body. To detect pus cells or bacteria in urine, the initial part of urine is needed so following instruction to collect urine properly. And the usual mid-stream urine may not show anything wrong. So, work closely with doctor. Best wish ... Always.

I am in a monogamous relationship, am I safe from gonorrhea?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Maybe, maybe not: Two people in a monogamous relationship must both start out free of gonorrhea. That means "the couple" is gonorrhea-free. Then, each partner must stay monogamous in order for gonorrhea to not enter the couple's relationship by way of a third party.

None are effective: There are no effective treatments for gonorrhea except for antibiotics. A person with suspected gonorrhea should be evaluated by a doctor to check for gonorrhea and other std infections. Until the doctor's appointment, the person should avoid sexual contact with others, so not to spread the gonorrhea.
