Is it possible for a women to get symptoms of gonorrhea in less than 24 hours of exposure? And how likely is it that a man would NOT have symptoms?

Gonorrhea/symptoms: The incubation time for symptoms to occur in females (such as discolored discharge) would be several days. Men do not always have symptoms, b/c the male urethra may not be as exposed, and urination after sex is common and will effectively diminish the inoculum of bacteria in males. When men do become infected, the discharge and pain is significant. ...Read more

Awaiting tests, but today I noticed sore throat when I swallow. Performed oral sex on woman 7 days ago and unprotected sex. No other symptoms. If it's oral gonorrhea, does the soreness get worse? What are characteristics of sore throat? Come and go?

Awaiting tests, but today I noticed sore throat when I swallow. Performed oral sex on woman 7 days ago and unprotected sex. No other symptoms. If it's oral gonorrhea, does the soreness get worse? What are characteristics of sore throat? Come and go?

Usually no symptoms: Oral gonorrhea almost always (95% of the time) is asymptomatic, with no sore throat at all. On the infrequent occasions it causes symptoms, they would not come and go. Also, cunnilingus -- oral-vaginal contact -- rarely transmits gonorrhea or other STDs. Most likely your symptoms are not from any infection from that exposure. But see a doctor if symptoms continue or you remain concerned. ...Read more

I don't want to get gonorrhea, what is the best prevention

Monogamy: Avoiding sexual contact with a carrier is the only war to avoid gonorrhea. The fact that someone can carry the germ in their genital tract without symptoms and pass it with every contact should be concerning. Condoms, spermacides, lotions, washes etc. May slow the bug down but you can still get it. Monogamy of both partners (treated months in the past if an issue) is the sensable way to avoid it. ...Read more
