STI Insight: Gonorrhoea

GONORRHOEA?

Gonorrhoea is an infectious disease caused by bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoea. It can be painful and can cause serious health problems such as infertility in both men and women. Gonorrhoea is a bacterium that can grow easily in the warm, moist areas of a female’s reproductive system including the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes. It also grows in the urethra, mouth, throat, eyes and anus of both males and females.

Important statistics:

Below are some statistics that have been published By the UK Government:

  • In 2017, there were approximately 422,000 diagnoses of sexually transmitted infections made in England
  • There were 44,676 diagnosis of gonorrhoea reported in 2017
  • The impact of STI’s remains greatest in young heterosexuals 15 to 24 years old
  • A 22% rise in cases of gonorrhoea in 2017 compared to 2016, from 36,577 in 2016 to 44,676 in 2017

 

HOW IS GONORRHOEA PASSED ON?

Gonorrhoea is transmitted through unprotected sex, including vaginal, anal and oral sex, and also by sharing sex toys that have not been covered or washed. Gonorrhoea can still be passed on via fluids even if the man does not ejaculate. Infected mothers can also transmit gonorrhoea to their baby during birth, which can cause inflammation of the eyes.- although this can be easily treated with antibiotics.

WHAT ARE THE COMPLICATIONS OF GONORRHOEA?

Gonorrhoea can be treated with antibiotics, but like most STIs, other complications result from long term untreated/repeated infections. Gonorrhoea can lead to infertility and pelvic inflammatory disease.
