Symptoms section is incomplete: missing infection of rectum, eyes, and throat[edit]

There are many sources for this info (including my own experience - NOT cool!). But here's what the mayo clinic website describes: (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/gonorrhea/DS00180/DSECTION=symptoms)


"Signs and symptoms of gonorrhea that affects the rectum include:

   * Anal itching
   * Pus-like cutty booty from the rectum
   * Spots of bright red blood on toilet tissue
   * Straining to have a bowel movement

Signs and symptoms of gonorrhea that affects the eye include:

   * Eye pain
   * Pus-like discharge from the eye
   * Sensitivity to light

Signs and symptoms of gonorrhea that affects the throat include:

   * Sore throat
   * Swollen lymph nodes in the neck"

Semi-protected edit request on 23 October 2016[edit]

The numbers in the quote "In 2013, it caused about 3,200 deaths, up from 2,300 in 1990." need to be swapped. The data in the cited report reads that there were 2,300 deaths in 2013 and 3,200 in 1990.

I would like to suggest adding this helpful video of a male Gonorrhea infection for the "discharge from the penis" symptom, as it would better assist users in visually identify symptoms: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sample_gonorrhea.ogg The video is a close-up that is non-sexual, so its a safe and non-offensive sample to use.

It is difficult to find place for it in the article. Ruslik_Zero 20:48, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello Ruslik_[[User Talk:Ruslik0| - I was suggesting you link to it from the sentence "discharge from the penis". Regards! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Travelstudy (talkcontribs) 14:34, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

I still have problems with unreferenced images of medical subjects. Even assuming good faith, there is no way that this image can be assumed to representative of the specific infection. This can be the symptom of any variety of infections. Best Regards,

Etymology/derivation?[edit]

The one thing I came here for I could not find, namely the origin of the word. Quite the oversight, I should say. Orthotox (talk) 05:47, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

If you find a good source for it, feel free to add it. I agree that it would be a great addition to the article! TylerDurden8823 (talk) 08:38, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
