How long can a man have gonorrhea and not know it?

MOST people who have STDs, including gonorrhea, will NEVER have symptoms. That means they could go on for years with an infection. Usually, gonorrhea doesn't last that long, but it could. Typically, gonorrhea can hide out for months. Compared to Chlamydia, gonorrhea is more likely to show symptoms, but usually it doesn't. This is why it's important to get tested every 6 months for STDs. Source(s): I work for your friendly local health department.

by one or two days is the best limit, after them the sintom start .
Although many men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all, some men have some signs or symptoms that appear two to five days after infection; symptoms can take as long as 30 days to appear. Symptoms and signs include a burning sensation when urinating, or a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis. Sometimes men with gonorrhea get painful or swollen testicles.

In women, the symptoms of gonorrhea are often mild, but most women who are infected have no symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they can be so non-specific as to be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. The initial symptoms and signs in women include a painful or burning sensation when urinating, increased vaginal discharge, or vaginal bleeding between periods. Women with gonorrhea are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, regardless of the presence or severity of symptoms.
