Gonorrhea

What is Gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea is a bacteria most frequently spread by sexual contact (also known as the clap or the drip). Gonorrhea is the 2nd most common notifiable disease in the US.  It can also be spread to a newborn from an infected mother.

Gonorrhea is usually transmitted sexually through oral, anal, or vaginal sex.  Infection could also be spread to a child being born to an infected mother. Patients who have been diagnosed with 1 STD are at an increased risk of being infected with other STDs.  Most commonly, people diagnosed with Gonorrhea are also infected with Chlamydia.

The infection usually begins 1-14 days after an exposure to an infected partner.

Who is at risk?

Anyone who has had a new sexual partner or multiple sexual partners is at risk.  Sex without protection is another risk factor.  Partners who have Gonorrhea can reinfect each other if not treated properly.

What are the signs and symptoms?

If symptoms do occur, it is usually within 14 days of infection. In women, the most common symptom is a mildly odorous, thin vaginal discharge.  In men, burning with urination and discharge from the urethra are the most common symptoms.

Serious complications can develop in both men and women if left undiagnosed or untreated such as sterility and life-threatening spread of the infection into the bloodstream.

Testing

All patients who are concerned about exposure to STDs, have any signs or symptoms of STDs, or have been diagnosed with other STDs should be tested for Gonorrhea.  The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that clinicians screen all sexually active women, including those who are pregnant, for gonorrhea infection if they are at increased risk for infection.

Testing is done by a simple urine sample.  For best accuracy, the person providing the sample should wait at least an hour before urinating for the test. Menstruation can decrease accuracy of the test.  Results are usually available in 2-3 business days.

Treatment

Fortunately, most Gonorrhea infections can be completely cured.  Reinfection is possible if sexual partners are not treated or from a new sexual partner.  It is important that all sexual partners be tested and treated if needed.  People diagnosed with Chlamydia should avoid sexual contact until at least 7 days after treatment is completed and all sexual partners have been tested and treated.

Gonorrhea occasionally has treatment failure and for that reason, a test of cure should be done 1 week after completing treatment.

Condoms should be utilized to prevent the risk of transmission of STDs (although abstinence is the only way to 100% protect yourself).  Vaccinations that prevent certain STDs such as Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and HPV should be considered.

One in every five people in our country has contracted a Sexually Transmitted Disease.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) there are 20 million new infections in the United States every year. Do not become a statistic; know the facts about Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

Most Sexually Transmitted Diseases have little to no warning signs or symptoms; the only way to know for sure is by testing.  If symptoms are present it might be more serious than you think.  Symptoms can vary greatly including but not limited to:

  • Dark color or heavy odor in urine
  • Discharge from genitals
  • Abnormal spots or rash
  • Burning during urination
  • Bumps, warts or blisters on genitals
  • Pain during sex or urination

Sexually Transmitted Diseases have many misconceptions as they have no discrimination as to sex, race, age, sexual orientation or religion. The facts are simple: Sexually Transmitted Diseases are transmitted by sex regardless of mode of transmission (i.e. oral, anal, or vaginal). The only fool proof way to avoid a Sexually Transmitted Disease is through abstinence.  STDs can still be spread even with the use of a condom. Get tested and do it often so you do not spread what can be prevented.

There are billions of dollars spent in the United States health care system each and every year in the treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Prevention and testing are necessary to prevent possible lifelong chronic health issues. What is your piece of mind worth?

Vegas STD Testing offers discrete, private and confidential testing for Syphilis, Chlamydia, Hepatitis, Herpes, Gonorrhea, and HIV/AIDS. Our highly trained staff is here to ensure all privacy laws and HIPAA regulations are followed. You are much more likely to contract HIV when one or more STDs are already present. Even after treatment, there is no guarantee that a Sexually Transmitted Disease is gone without retesting.

Our Northwest location is in the Rainbow Promenade across from the Best in the West Shopping Center off of Lake Mead and US-95.
