Who should get a Gonorrhea test?

Gonorrhea is a STD and you should get a gonorrhea test if you have symptoms, such as (for women) increased vaginal discharge, bleeding associated with vaginal intercourse, or burning/painful urination; or (for men) pus discharging from the penis, a burning sensation during urination, or proctitis (inflammation of the rectal or anal area). Because many infected people do not have any symptoms, a number of organizations have published screening recommendations.
