Cloudy Urine and Gonorrhea

Cloudy urine is usually caused by mild dehydration, medications, or certain foods and is quite common. However, if the cloudy urine is associated with other symptoms such as burning during urination, yellowish discharge or joint pain, those are symptoms of gonorrhea.

The bacterium that causes gonorrhea thrives in warm moist areas such as the genital area, anus, mouth, and throat from intercourse, anal or oral sex. Gonorrhea is easily treated with common antibiotics so early detection and treatment can easily heal the infection. In many cases, symptoms don’t appear for several weeks.

Once diagnosed with gonorrhea, it is vital to know the source of the infection in order to treat others who may also have been infected to prevent the infection from spreading. Abstain from sex or sexual contact until the infection is gone. Simply touching the infected areas then touching yourself can reinfect you.

But cloudy urine is commonly not a problem unless accompanied by other symptoms. Morning urine is usually cloudy because no fluids were consumed during sleep and again is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. A large meal of fatty foods will definitely cause urine to be cloudy along with drinking a lot of milk.

When urine is consistently cloudy, accompanied by other symptoms such as burning, chills, and body aches, it could be due to one of a number of different health problems. But if there are no other symptoms, cloudy urine is nothing to worry about and can be treated very effectively by simply drinking some water to replenish your fluid levels.

Some of the most common health problems that can cause cloudy urine are bladder, urinary tract and kidney infections. Vaginal infections and prostate problems can also cause cloudy urine. But health problems such as these usually produce other symptoms such as frequency to urinate, pain, fever, chills, and an allover sick feeling.

When the body is infected with bacteria, the urine can become cloudy and since gonorrhea is an infection, cloudy urine can be a warning sign. Other signs of gonorrhea are sore throat, and swollen glands around the throat.

Therefore, if you believe for even a moment that you may have gonorrhea, contact your physician and get the antibiotics you’ll need to get rid of the infection. Then you can avoid the possibility of spreading it to someone else. Your partner will also need to be treated, otherwise, you will simply pass the infection back and forth between you.
