THE HUMAN QUESTION #6161

The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea has symptoms akin to those of another sexually transmitted disease. Which one?

Chlamydia

Explanation

Gonorrhea (also colloquially known as the clap) is a common, sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The bacteria is found in sexual fluids such as pre-sperm and sperm. Gonorrhea spreads through vaginal, oral, or anal sex, but not through kissing. Mothers with gonorrhea can pass it on to their unborn children, which can lead to blindness. In many cases, those infected do not know they are, as 50 % of all women and 20-30% of all men do not display symptoms. Symptoms are similar to those of chlamydia.
