Lately in the school we had long conversations about sexually transmitted diseases. There is one that especially interested me. Professor told us any sexually active person can be infected with gonorrhea. Also, one more interesting fact about this STD is that many men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all. All this, and much more, forced me to ask more about gonorrhea, for example are there some complications and how it is diagnosed?

Gonorrhea is sexually transmitted disease caused by Neisseria Gonorrhoeae. That is bacterium that can grow and multiply easily in the warm, moist areas of reproductive tract. It is spreaded through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth or anus, and is very commonly. Also gonorrhea can be spread from mother to baby during delivery. People who have had gonorrhea and received treatment may get infected again if they have sexual contact with infected person. Symptoms might occur sometimes, two days after infection and lasts for 30 days. Here are included symptoms such as painful or burning sensation when urinating, increased vaginal discharge, or vaginal bleeding between periods. Rectal symptoms both with women and men include discharge, anal itching, soreness, bleeding, or painful bowel movements. Complications in women are pelvic inflammatory disease. It can lead to internal abscesses and long lasting chronic pelvic pain. In men, gonorrhea can cause epididymitis, painful condition of testicles that can lead to infertility if left untreated.
