  What is Gonorrhea?  
    Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Gonorrhea is caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a bacterium that can grow and multiply easily in the warm, moist areas of the reproductive tract, including the cervix (opening to the womb), uterus (womb), and fallopian tubes (egg canals) in women, and in the urethra (urine canal) in women and men. The bacterium can also grow in the mouth, throat, eyes, and anus.

  How Common is Gonorrhea?  

    The disease Gonorrhea is a very common disease infection, with very serious symptoms and health risks. The center for disease control and prevention say that every year it is expect that over 700,000 persons will contract the disease. It is estimated that there are about 400,000 cases in which persons are undiagnosed with an infection. In the united states it is estimated that 1 in 679 people in fact are infected with the disease and do NOT know they have it. The ratio of uninfected people to the infected is estimated to be about 1 infected person to every 800,000 people. The health costs of this sexually transmitted disease are an estimated $1.1 billion annually, disease complications included, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

     
  How do you get Gonorrhea?  

    Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) which can be passed on by penetrative sex (when the penis enters the vagina, mouth, or anus)

     

    It can also be passed by rimming (where a person uses their mouth and tongue to stimulate another person's anus) inserting your fingers into an infected vagina, anus or mouth and then putting them into your own without washing your hands in between.

     

    Most people do not know that simply by TOUCHING an infected sexual body part you can receive an infection, by touching your eyes afterward!

     
  What are the Symptoms of Gonorrhea?  

      Some men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all. However, many men will have 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/stinging feeling when urinating, or a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis. This is often accompaned by a strong smell from the penis. Sometimes men with gonorrhea get painful or swollen testicles, but this is not so common.

       

      In women, the symptoms of gonorrhea are often mild, but many women who are infected have no symptoms. That is why it is always advisable to get a regular check up, especially if you are sexually active. 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.

       

      Symptoms of rectal infection in both men and women may include discharge, anal itching, soreness, bleeding, or painful bowel movements. Rectal infection also may cause no symptoms. Infections in the throat may cause a sore throat, but usually causes no symptoms.

     
  Tests for Gonorrhea?  

    Several laboratory tests are available to diagnose gonorrhea. A doctor or nurse can obtain a sample for testing from the parts of the body likely to be infected (cervix, urethra, rectum, or throat) and send the sample to a laboratory for analysis. Gonorrhea that is present in the cervix or urethra can be diagnosed in a laboratory by testing a urine sample. A quick laboratory test for gonorrhea that can be done in some clinics or doctor’s offices is a Gram stain. A Gram stain of a sample from a urethra or a cervix allows the doctor to see the gonorrhea bacterium under a microscope. This test works better for men than for women.

     
  Gonorrhea Treatment  

    Now the good news! In most cases treatment for uncomplicated Gonorrhea is quick and simple. We follow the latest treatment guidelines from the CDC in America.

     

    As of late 2010 the CDC is recommending a DUAL THERAPY option, mainly because Gonorrhea is becoming resistant to some types of antibiotics and also because many people who are infected with Gonorrhea are also infected with Chlamydia at the same time. Successful treatment is different for both std's. Read More from the CDC

  What Happens if Gonorrhea is left Untreated?  

    Untreated gonorrhea can cause serious and permanent health problems in both women and men.

     

    In women, gonorrhea is a common cause of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). About one million women each year in the United States develop PID. The symptoms may be quite mild or can be very severe and can include abdominal pain and fever. PID can lead to internal abscesses (pus-filled “pockets” that are hard to cure) and long-lasting, chronic pelvic pain. PID can damage the fallopian tubes enough to cause infertility or increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition in which a fertilized egg grows outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube.

     

    In men, gonorrhea can cause epididymitis, a painful condition of the ducts attached to the testicles that may lead to infertility if left untreated.

     

    Gonorrhea can spread to the blood or joints. This condition can be life threatening. In addition, people with gonorrhea can more easily contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. HIV-infected people with gonorrhea can transmit HIV more easily to someone else than if they did not have gonorrhea.
