If you believe you are at risk, get tested so that you can be treated appropriately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does intensity of color of a urin gonorrhea test correlate automaticaly with time that one was infected? Light color=recent, intense color=long time?
Unreliable test: These tests are not reliable. Whether weakly or strongly positive, speak with your doctor or clinic about more accurate testing, especailly a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT). If you do have gonorrhea, for sure the color intensity of the test says nothing at all about how long the infection has been present. Onset of symptoms or when you had a high risk exposure are the only ways to know. ...Read more

Chlamydia? NGU?: Gonorrhea of the urethra (penis) almost always causes obvious symptoms (dripping pus, painful urination) within 5 days. The doctor probably is right. However, the most common causes of urethral discharge are not gonorrhea, but other STDs, i.e. chlamydia and nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). If your partner has discharge, it's probaby one of these. You will need treatment; see your doctor. Good luck ...Read more

Is there a way to find out for how long one has been infected with gonorreah? or a way to see the damage it has done?
Not really: There isn't a good way to know how long you have had gonorrhea. All your doctor can do is tell you you have it and treat it. There is also no easy way to know what damage has been done. There is a test called a Hysterosalpingogram that can give you some idea if your tubes are still open but it doesn't correlate perfectly with fertility.
