Gonorrhea

You're getting a discharge

Gonorrhea, bacteria, bacteria, everything is bacteria.

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease that prospers in moist areas of the body such as the urethra, vagina, mouth, and anus. The bacteria of the virus causes a painful green, white, or yellow discharge to come out of the infected area. The symptoms also include burning when urinating, and chronic pelvic pain. Luckily gonorrhea is a treatable disease, and is easily cured with proper antibiotics, like penicillin. Unfortunately, if gonorrhea goes untreated it can become life threatening, and in women it can cause ectopic pregnancies.
