Get To Know the Dangers of STD – Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is an STD that is caused by Neisseria Gonorrhoeae bacteria. It is transmitted from one person to the other, either through oral, anal or vaginal sex. The infection does not have any obvious symptoms, so it goes unnoticed many times. It gets transmitted from the mother to the baby, during pregnancy.

Gonorrhea is not contagious and does not spread by using a common towel, touching the doorknob, or toilet seat.

Symptoms

Symptoms are usually noticed in between two to seven days, after the person is infected by these bacteria. In case of female the warning sign may emerge even later.

  • In Females - Gonorrhea infection symptoms in females may be very mild that goes unnoticed, until they get severe. In certain cases, a burning sensation is felt, when she urinates. They may even have green-yellow colored vaginal discharge. Vaginal bleeding may be experienced by some girls during their menstrual cycles. If this infection gets pervasive and moves towards the fallopian tubes or uterus, then it can direct to pelvic inflammatory disease. PID causes fever, abdominal pain and pain during libido.
  • In Males - Males are more probable to recognize the gonorrhea symptoms. Burning sensation during urinating is often felt by infected guys. There is a yellowish-white urethral discharge that oozes out.

Visit your gynecologist or doctor, if you doubt suffering from gonorrhea. Urine test may be recommended or for girls a swab from vaginal discharge will be taken for further analysis. Doctor may also recommend other STD tests.

If the diagnosis is positive, then you will be prescribed antibiotics treatment to cure this bacterial infection. Your sexual partner will also be examined and treated simultaneously, even if he/she has no symptoms. If you have sex with more than one partner, then the person with whom you were involved in two months will be included.

With proper treatment the possibility of complications gets lessened and the chances of getting re-infected are also reduced. Being treated for gonorrhea once does not make anyone immune from having it again.

Prevention

It is recommended not to get involved into any sexual activities, if you are infected. Use condom, if you still have sex. This is the only birth control option that prevents gonorrhea.

What happens if it is left untreated?

Gonorrhea is extremely dangerous. It should not be left untreated, even if the symptoms are mild. In girls it can spread extensively causing PID, which directs scarring and infertility. New born babies can face complications, since their birth. If left untreated the babies can suffer from an inflammation in the membranes surrounding the spinal cord and brain (meningitis) or an eye infection, which can cause blindness.

In males, gonorrhea can stretch towards the structure connected to the testicle, which helps in transporting sperms (epididymis). It causes swelling and pain in the testicular region. It can possibly create scar tissue, which may cause infertility in the guy.

Untreated gonorrhea is capable to affect other parts and organs of the body in both men and women. Eyes, heart, brain, throat, joints and skin are the common areas that can get easily infected due to this infection.
