What is the real basis of being men? Is it by the clothes that you wear? Is it with the number of shoes that you have?
How about the house and lot that you own? Well for me it’s far-fetched.
Being real men is about being happy with yourself, it’s about striving every day to be the best version of yourself and always examining yourself and taking steps to correct.
When it comes to sexual performance, thousands of men consider it as one of the most important aspect that allows them to live life to the fullest.
It’s a big part in a puzzle that makes life worth living.
Yet, there are times when life really has its own way of shaking your balance. Bad things happen that may lead you astray.
Having sexual infections are one of the most aggravating and sorrowful experience that men could ever have.
Anyone who is active in sex can acquire Gonorrhea. Gonorrhea can cause lots complications if left untreated and can be treated using the right medications.
Gonoorhea symptoms come in many faces and sometimes it comes with no symptoms at all.
Gonorrhea will not cause no symptoms unless the infection reach the other areas of the body.
Incubation period (beginning of exposure to bacteria until symptoms develop) usually takes about 2-5 days but sometimes it could take until 30 days.
Gonorrhea continues to affect thousands to millions of men and women all over the world. Commonly it affects youngsters’ ages 15-24 years.
Gonorrhea is actually a sexually transmitted disease that can affect men and women in all walks of life. It can cause infections in the male reproductive organs, female genital tract, rectum, throat, eyes, skin and joints.
How Is Gonorrhea Transmitted?
It is very important to know first how Gonorrhea spreads before knowing its common symptoms.
Gonorrhea spreads through seminal and vaginal discharge during sexual activity (oral, anal, and vaginal sex) with an infected person.
In addition, Gonorrhea can spread from a pregnant woman to her baby during a vaginal delivery.
Touching infected sexual organs then touching your eyes can spread the infection into your eyes
Take note Gonorrhea cannot be transmitted by simply shaking hands or by sitting on a toilet seat.
Men and women may have similarities and difference when it comes to the occurrence of Gonorrhea symptoms.
So do not expect that both men and women will have uniform symptoms of Gonorrhea.
