Gonorrhea – Symptoms and Causes

Pelvic Pain

Another symptom to look for is pain in the pelvic area or lower abdomen. This problem usually indicates the presence of pelvic inflammatory disease or PID, which is a typical sign of gonorrhea in females. The sensation can range from mild to severe, depending on the underlying cause. You might also experience pain during intercourse. In addition, the pelvic inflammatory disease could cause a fever equal or greater than 101 degrees, sometimes with chills. If left untreated, this condition would lead to infertility in the long run.
