In brief: Invasion
Gc passes from one to another via intimate contact.
If this involves the genitals, it invades the male urine tube and can be found in the sperm producing gland and structures. Pain on voiding is common as is discharge.In females, it can invade the outside glands, the lining of the cervix, uterus and fallopian tube(abdominal pain).It can invade the blood in either sex & reduce fertility in both.
