Different diseases: Chlamydia is a cell-wall free higher form of bacteria which is a common cause of non-gonococcal urethritis. Neisseria gonorrheae is a cell-wall containing bacteria which causes gonorrhea, usually producing more severely symptomatic disease than chlamydia.

A 20-year-old female asked:

What are the differences between chlamydia and gonorrhea symptoms and how can you guess which one you have before you decide to get tested?

Not too many: The two conditions can be remarkably similar. Gc usually presents with more pain and purulent discharge, but have seen the same thing with non-gonococcal urethritis, usually due to chlamydia. Guessing is nowhere as good as being diagnosed and treated appropriately. And would you believe you can have both simultaneously.

The cause...: Gonorrhea is cause by one type of bacteria (n. Gonorrhea), chlamydia is caused by another type (c. Trachomatis). Neither one is a good thing. Protect yourself. Good luck!
