GONORRHEA

GONORRHEA
Gonorrhea is a curable sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a bacterium called Neisseria gonorrhoeae. These bacteria can infect the genital tract, the mouth, and the rectum. In women, the opening (cervix) to the womb (uterus) from the birth canal is the first place of infection. The disease however can spread into the womb and fallopian tubes, resulting in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID affects more than 1 million women in this country every year and can cause infertility in as many as 10 percent of infected women and tubal (ectopic) pregnancy.

Some of the symptoms of Gonorrhea include:
• No symptoms – some people and especially women may have no symptoms or very mild symptoms only; as many as 50% of female cases
• Mild symptoms
• Female early gonorrhea symptoms
1. Vaginal discharge- usually yellow or bloody
2. Yellow-green vaginal discharge

In contrast, men usually have the symptoms of urethritis, burning on urination, and penile discharge. Gonorrhea can also infect the throat (pharyngitis) and the rectum (proctitis). Proctitis results in diarrhea (frequent bowel movements) and an anal discharge (drainage from the rectum). Gonorrhea can also cause epididymitis and orchitis. Gonorrhea is most commonly spread during genital contact, but it can also be passed from the genitals of one partner to the throat of the other during oral sex (pharyngeal gonorrhea). Gonorrhea of the rectum can occur in people who practice anal intercourse and may also occur in women due to spread of the infection from the vaginal area. Several types of tests can be used to detect a gonorrhea infection. Most tests use a sample of body fluid from the affected area.
• Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT).
• Gonorrhea culture.
• Gram stain.
• Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA, EIA).

Uniqueness of Our Treatment:
Gonorrhea can be controlled by treating infected, but when half of those infected don’t know that, and then they can freely transmit the disease through sexual contact or birth. A person who is sexually exposed to an individual that is infected with gonorrhea should seek early medical attention. If the last sexual contact was within 60 days of the partner’s diagnosis, the person has to be treated for both gonorrhea and Chlamydia. Systemic gonorrheal infections involving the skin and/or joints is generally treated with ADVANCE & HIGH POTENCY SIDDHA MEDICINES. Patients should abstain from sex for 48 days after the start of treatment and should follow strict diet restriction.
