Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease caused by bacteria. It spreads through sexual contact with an infected individual. It can also spread from an affected pregnant woman to her baby during childbirth. Most people who suffer from this sexually transmitted disease are unaware that they are carrying the infection.
In men affected by the condition, there are specific symptoms that can help identify the infection. In women, gonorrhea is often mistaken for a vaginal infection. That’s why it is important to get tested for gonorrhea in a laboratory if you suspect you are affected by the bacteria.

The Testing Process
There are a number of ways to test for gonorrhea. The swab test is a commonly used procedure. In this method, a cotton swab is wiped over the infected area to collect samples of the discharge. Men are generally asked to provide a sample of their urine. It is a quick, simple, and painless procedure that helps the doctor to form a proper diagnosis.
