In brief: Yes, however...

The long term sequelae of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and infections of the testicle and epididymis are different from the signs and symptoms of acute infection.
Active infection is characterized by urinary pain and urethral discharge. There may also be no symptoms. Long term, there is risk of urethral stricture disease, infertility, and atrophy of the infected epididymis or testicle.
