In brief: Male or female?

In women it is frequently asymptomic, although it can cause a reactive arthritis, since is harbored so long.
It can spread from the fallopian tubes into the abdomen and wreak havoc. But this usually takes time.Scarring of the tubes can occur, but whoever spreads gonorrhea is frequently spreading chlamydia.. Men know within 24 hrs that they have it with an acute painful, often bloody urethritis!
