Sometimes no symptoms exhibit
There are an estimated 820,000 new gonorrhea infections in the US each year. It not only affects the reproductive tract, but can also affect the mucus membranes of the mouth, throat, eyes, joints and rectum.
OK, enough with the scary stuff. Well, not really. If your "Johnson" is dripping anything other than the usual body fluids, and we all know what they should be, then it is a scary situation. But all drips are not the same, as was the two cases this week that came across my desk. Both men exhibited the classic signs, painful urination and of course the yellowish discharge, unprotected sex, etc. etc. Drop trousers and a culture we will do. I sure they thought you going to stick what, where,? MY JOHNSON!
Both cases were cleared for gonorrhea but both still had nasty bacterial infections. In fact, one had two different kinds of bacteria growing with heavy growth of each. The culprits in these cases turned out to be: Staph saprophyticus, Proteus mirabilis, E. coli. all easily treated. Especially since the E. coli was highly sensitive to all tested antibiotics, which would have been a different story if it had turned out as an ESBL. But that's a different story for a different time, and too boring of a tale.
Long story short, if your penis is dripping, get it checked out! Yes, it will require someone sticking a swab up your Johnson or at the least a first morning catch of urine....
Be responsible and wear protection if you don't know anything about the hole your sticking it in....
