Is it possible that I have rectal gonorrhea for 3 years without any symptoms? I regularly get urine std tested but never a rectal swab for the test.

In brief: Rectal gonorrhea

Gonorrhea at any location will generally produce unpleasant odor and/or discharge.
It is "possible" , but unlikely that "rectal gonorrhea" can exist for "three years", but almost always with symptoms. A rectal culture should prove one way or the other.
