If you have had chlamydia/gonorrhea and were treated in the past,
you can get infected again if you have unprotected sexual contact
with someone who is infected. If you are pregnant, you can pass
chlamydia/gonorrhea to your baby during a vaginal delivery.

Symptoms: Many people who are infected with chlamydia and/or
gonorrhea have no symptoms.  Symptoms may include the following:

For Men:

  • Burning sensation when urinating;
  • White, yellow, or green discharge from penis;
  • Pain and swelling in one or both testicles (less common).

For Women:

  • Painful or burning sensation when urinating;
  • Increased/Abnormal vaginal discharge;
  • Vaginal bleeding between periods.

If you are sexually active and have any of the following risk factors, you should
be tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea every year.
