Men have symptoms more often than women. Symptoms include:
Pus (a creamy yellowish or greenish discharge) from the penis often accompanied by pain - hence the term "the drip" or "the clap";
A burning sensation during urination that may be severe;
Symptoms of rectal infection may include discharge, anal itching, and occasional painful bowel movements with fresh blood on the feces. It is important to note that even men who do not practice receptive anal intercourse may be infected by contact with infected secretions (be they vaginal or penile);
Infection of the throat may (rarely) cause localized pain, painful swallowing or pus in the throat.
