Gonorrhea - Facts You Must Know About It?

Gonorrhea is a bacterial disease that is transmitted through intimate contact. If not treated on time, gonorrhea can become serious. Every year millions of people get affected with this disease across the globe.The area of infection predominantly involves the anus, vagina, penis and urethra.

Symptoms of gonorrhea
Gonorrhea often shows no symptoms. It is found that only two out of ten women show signs of gonorrhea and one out of ten men show signs of gonorrhea. This disease can take as long as 14 days to show any signs of its existence. Some common signs in women include menstrual irregularities, throwing up, abdominal pain, painful intercourse, swelling of the vulva, frequent urination and yellowish vaginal discharge. Some common signs among men include burning sensation while urinatingand discharge of pus during urination. Some common symptoms include itching of the anus, throat selling, oral infection and painful bowel movements.

Gonorrhea complications

  1. Complications in pregnancy: Apart from premature labour and stillbirth, gonorrhea can get passed on to the fetus as well. Some other symptoms include eye infection and joint and blood infection. If the fetus gets an eye infection, antibiotics drop is prescribed by the Doctor.
  2. Infertility: If gonorrhea is not treated for a long time, it can lead to infertility. Women might find infections in regions such as the uterus, fallopian tube and ovaries. Men might find infection in their testicles, urethra, etc. It can lead to a condition known as the epididymitis. If this condition is not treated, men can become permanently infertile.
  3. Arthritis: Arthritis can lead to a condition known as the disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI). This is a condition, which leads to arthritis or soring of skin. Women are more prone to developing this condition than men. Some common symptoms include fever, joint pain and fever. If DGI is not treated on time, it can lead to permanent damage of joints.

Gonorrhea is easily treatable and medication involves antibiotics along with other drugs. In case a pregnant woman gets diagnosed with gonorrhea, antibiotics are not prescribed. It is strictly advised not to involve in any sexual activities while the treatment is underway. Some of the common precautions that should be taken while undergoing treatment involves the following:

  1. Taking the medication on time. At times, symptoms go away, but completing the full medication course as prescribed by the doctor is required in order to completely get rid of the bacteria.
  2. Gonorrhea medicines should not be shared with anyone
  3. Consulting the doctor every three months to ensure that the disease is fully cured
  4. To make sure that your partner gets treated along with you in order to mitigate the risk of recurrence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

What are the most important medical screening tests for me as a woman?

MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Medical screening tests depend on your age, medical history and family history. If one or more of your blood relations have diabetes, then u need to get yourself tested. The frequency of testing depends on your age. Usually a woman should undergo Pap smears for cervical cancer screening every 2-3 years

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If you insert any liquid on the vagina it increases the chance of infection inside the vagina and ultimately you r at risk of getting infected. So refrain from any such activities. Of course you can kiss on the vagina but please do not apply anything there.

There is no need to discontinue work when trying to get pregnant. Standing for long hours, as required by a lecturer, will not interfere with your possibility of pregnancy. So you are free to pursue both your job and dream for motherhood. Good luck.

Dear user. In my opinion, you cannot convince him. I am sure that this is your first sexual intercourse. But he may not agree because he may not know the medical reasons of your lack of blood during intercourse. You should urge him to take up a sexual education session. Take care.

I suspect the hymen is still intact. So it is causing pain and semen gets spurted out. Have a check with any doctor. Sometimes the tough hymen needs to be pierced surgically. See a doctor.
