Blennorrhea is mucous discharge, especially from the urethra or vagina (that is, mucus vaginal discharge).[1]

Blennorrhagia is an excess of such discharge,[2] often specifically referring to that seen in gonorrhea. In fact, blennorrhagia is also a German name of Gonorrhea that was previously in use, but now no longer in technical use. Still, blennorrhagia is a major symptom of gonorrhea.
