Patient Comments: Gonorrhea In Women - Symptoms

Question:

Did you have symptoms before being diagnosed with gonorrhea? If so, what were they, and did you see a doctor?

My partner was diagnosed with gonorrhea today but I haven't been experiencing any symptoms, except for frequent urination. I drink a lot of water and I've been bleeding for the past couple of days but I also took a Plan B last week so I'm thinking that could be the reason. I really don't know and don't have any other symptoms.

I started feeling tired, had loss of appetite, shivers, then burning hot fever of 102 degrees for 3 days. I started wheezing when inhaling; this startled me as I have never had anything like this before. I drove to the doctor feeling like I was dying, she came into the room and said I look very sick. I told her my symptoms, she listened to my lungs with stethoscope, and said I have bacterial pneumonia. No wonder I was sick I said, and she gave me antibiotics which really helped me, and an inhaler. I started feeling better, but now I have shortness of breath and feel very tired all the time; not much appetite yet.

My boyfriend is blaming on me that I passed gonorrhea to him but I don't have any symptoms like he has.

I realized about three weeks ago that my urine comes frequently and also very painful. I have loss of appetite and my vagina brings out more pus that it usually does and also I bleed after sex. I am really scared because of all what I read online. Going to see a doctor tomorrow to check if I have gonorrhea.

I have been experiencing itching and a light burning sensation in my pelvic region, and now a white discharge that smells like the Vaseline I had used to calm the soreness. Do I have any reason to worry it might be gonorrhea? My spouse did find out he had it after we had unprotected sex.
