Gonorrhea can be asymptomatic, especially in men, meaning the person infected will show no symptoms of the infection. It is one of the most common STDs, with a staggering 700,000 new cases each year according to the Centers for Disease Control. Getting tested can help stop the spread of gonorrhea. When left untreated, the effects of gonorrhea can be horrible and possibly fatal. It can also lead to infertility and pain in the long term. If detected in the body, gonorrhea is easy to treat and cure.
