The infection also grows in mouth, throat, urethra and anus, in both men and women. Most of the times, many men and women does not develop any noticeable symptoms of gonorrhea. Whenever the infected person develop any symptoms, it tends to be similar to the other bacterial infection, which makes it difficult to identify the gonorrhea infection. Few of the mild symptoms of gonorrhea includes discharge from vagina and penis, frequent urine discharge, burning sensation while urinating, and less commonly swollen testicles. The gonorrhea infection can spread through intercourse, and anal or oral sex. In around ninety percent of oral infection, there are no visible infection apart from sore throat, itchiness, which is most common in any other bacterial infection.

Among these 820,000 new cases, 70% of population are expected to age between 15 to 24 years. CDC stated, women aged 25 and above are at the higher risk of gonorrhea infection. The risk factors for gonorrhea includes unprotected sex, multiple sex partners, and oral or anal sex with STI infected person. The diagnosis of gonorrhea infection involves several ways, however, the most common method includes fluid sample from infected area i.e. penis, vagina, throat or rectum, with as swab. Sometimes, blood samples are require to diagnose the infection. After sample collection, certain stains are added to the sample and the stain reaction would then diagnose the infection. This method is most commonly adopted as it is quick and easy, however, it might not provide absolute certainty. Other diagnosis method includes cell culture, which includes sample placement in petri dish, and incubate under growth conditions. If gonorrhea infection is present in the given sample, then a colony of gonorrhea bacteria would grow in the petri dish, and the infection can be diagnose.

Gonorrhea testing market is expected to witness exponential growth attributed to increasing involvement of multiple sex partners and changing lifestyle would significantly boosted the market for gonorrhea testing. According to CDC, the gonorrhea infection/bacteria are being resistant to strains in patients, thus, it further exaggerates the demand for gonorrhea diagnostic testing.
