Gonorrhea - Symptoms & Treatment


Gonorrhea, a highly transmittable sexually transmitted disease (STD), is one of the most frequent STDs in the United States . The reason of gonorrhea is a bacterium that spreads during sexual contact. The disease can also be conceded from a mother to her child during birth. Gonorrhea generally spreads during sexual contact. It can also be vertically transmitted, where infected mothers can exceed gonorrhea to their newborn infants during delivery. This causes conjunctivitis (eye contagion) which, if left untreated, can cause blindness. In women, the cervix is the most frequent site of illness. Yet, the disease can extend to the ovaries and fallopian tubes, ensuing in pelvic inflammatory disease; this can cause infertility and other serious harms.

Gonorrhea is more frequent in large cities, inner-city areas, populations with lower overall levels of education and people with lower socioeconomic condition. Lots of people who enclose gonorrhea too have one more common STD called chlamydia. So when doctors identify or expect a case of gonorrhea, they often screen for and treat other STDs too. In males and females, gonorrhea that goes concealed can spread through the blood to parts of the body that are far from the reproductive organs, and lead to tenderness in the joints, the skin, the bones, tendons, heart, or even the area around the liver. If untreated, gonorrhea infection may persevere for lots of months, even without symptoms. During this time, harm to the reproductive organs in women can occur.

Causes of Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea induced by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The bacterium is increase through semen or vaginal fluids during defenseless sexual contact, heterosexual or homosexual, with an infected partner. An infected mother may spread gonorrhea to her infant during vaginal childbirth. You cannot catch gonorrhea as of a towel, a knob, or a toilet seat. The more sexual partners you have, the superior your possibility. Casual contact, for instance kissing, doesn't spread the disease. Gonorrhea infections are observed most often in adolescents and young adults. Infectivity in children is a sign for child sexual abuse and should be reported as such.

Symptoms of Gonorrhea

The Possible Symptoms of Gonorrhea includes:

  • A burning consciousness or pain even as passing urine.
  • Sore throat.
  • Tender or inflamed testicles.
  • Painful sexual interaction.
  • Fever (if the contagion spreads to the fallopian tubes and stomach part).
  • Vaginal release.

Treatment of Gonorrhea

A class of antibiotics identified as the fluoroquinolones (examples are ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, and levofloxacin) is extensively used in the treatment of gonorrheal infection. The patient should not have penetrative sex until they have returned to the clinic and it is established that the contagion is gone. The doctor or health consultant will inform the patient which sexual activities are protected. Because more and more strains of gonorrhea are becoming drug resistant, it's imperative that you take the full lessons of medication. While over-the-counter ache relievers may decrease signs or symptoms, these medications won't treat gonorrhea.
