Therefore, it's recommended that you get tested every year or when you change sexual partners. Mail-in a small urine or swab sample for certified lab results in a matter of days.

Gonorrhea and Chlamydia in the Rectum, Throat, or Eyes
Both men and women can develop an infection in the rectum, throat, or eyes by having unprotected anal or oral sex. Infection in the rectum can cause discomfort, pain, or discharge. Infection in the eyes can cause irritation, pain, swelling, and discharge, and infection in the throat usually causes no symptoms.
If infected semen or vaginal fluid comes into contact with the eyes, you can also develop conjunctivitis.
