Gonorrhea (trigger or cap) – contagious sexually transmitted disease, which is spread by sex contact, can be transmitted from the mother to the fetus during pregnancy, and very rarely through contaminated objects (clothing, crop, shunter) and its causing the so called bacteria Neisseria gonorrhea. A source of infection is an infected person and is transmitted by direct sexual contact through the skin and mucous membrane of the genital organs. The clinical picture of gonorrhea is different in men and women.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced a dramatic announcement urging people to use condoms during sexual intercourse, due to an elevated degree of gonorrhea, which, unfortunately, in some cases has become antibiotic-resistant.
“The bacteria is extremely intelligent. Whenever we apply a new series of antibiotics to treat the infection, it develops and becomes resistant. The fact is that poor countries do not have a monitoring system and its diagnosis, “explains Theodora Vi, an expert at the “WHO”.
Based on data collected from as many as 77 countries in the world, the World Health Organization has issued a statement warning the alarming results that this bacteria is more resistant. Apart from the fact that the old antibiotics no longer work on the bacteria, it’s worrisome that even the new generation of antibiotics are not effective in some cases.
According to the “WHO”, the gonorrhea infects as many as 78 million people annually, and the number of infected people is steadily increasing.
Symptoms may be mild or unbearably painful and cause abdominal pain and fever with high temperature. If a pregnant woman has gonorrhea, she can infect the baby during her birth, or while it passes through the birth canal. Infection can cause blindness, an infection of the joints, or an infection of the blood that can be life-threatening.
