For women, if symptoms occur, they may include: Bleeding between menstrual periods and after sexual intercourse Abdominal pain Painful intercourse Painful and/or frequent urination Abnormal vaginal discharge Men may have no noticeable symptoms. If they do, they may include: A white, yellow, or greenish discharge from the penis Pain or burning when urinating Pain, tenderness, and swelling of the testicle
