Thanks for your question.
The answer to your question is that many people who have gonorrhea in the throat, also have the infection in other parts of their body such as penis, rectum, or vagina. However it is possible that they may be asymptomatic despite having the infection. So they may have no symptoms. Most people who have pharyngeal gonorrhea do not have any symptoms in the throat. But sometimes symptoms are seen, which can be a sore throat and tonsillitis, and sometimes rarely a fever and swollen glands in the neck. However these symptoms are identical to the symptoms of many other conditions and are not specific to gonorrhea. Therefore having these symptoms only does not mean that a person has gonorrhea. And yes sore throats with yellow mucus do happen in other viral and bacterial infectious pharyngitis as well.
