Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (std). The bacteria that causes gonorrhea can infect the genital tract, mouth, or anus. You can get gonorrhea during vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected partner. A pregnant woman can pass it to her baby during childbirth. Gonorrhea is the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease (STD) in Nigeria. In fact, in 1963, WHO found Lagos to have the highest gonorrhea rate in the world. Recent surveys report gonorrhea prevalence to be as high as 28.1%. Hence it is imperative that we adopt a healthy lifestyle that keeps us far from the gonorrhea infection. This can be in form of abstinence, use of protection during sex and high standards of hygiene.
CAUSES OF GONORRHEA :
Gonorrhea is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
Gonorrhea can be passed from mother to baby during delivery.
Gonorrhea and chlamydia can be experienced simultaneously.
If untreated, gonorrhea can increase a person’s risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV.
SYMPTOMS OF GONORRHEA :g
Gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all. However, men who do have symptoms, may have:
A burning sensation when urinating; a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis; painful or swollen testicles (although this is less common).
Most women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they are often mild and can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Women with gonorrhea are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, even if they don’t have any symptoms.
