When you notice any troubling signs or symptoms, such as a burning sensation when you urinate, or a pus-like discharge from your penis, vagina, or rectum, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor.

If your partner has been diagnosed with gonorrhea, you should also make an appointment with your doctor. You may not experience any signs or symptoms that cause you to seek medical attention.
