GONORRHEA

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It is a bacterial infection of the urethra in men and the urethra, cervix, or both in women. Gonorrhea can also infect the rectum, anus, throat, pelvic organs, and in rare cases, the conjunctiva, which is the membrane that lines the eyelid and eye surface. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It is a bacterial infection of the urethra in men and the urethra, cervix, or both in women. Gonorrhea can also infect the rectum, anus, throat, pelvic organs, and in rare cases, the conjunctiva, which is the membrane that lines the eyelid and eye surface. It is fairly common for gonorrhea to cause no symptoms, especially in women. People who do not have symptoms can unknowingly transmit gonorrhea infections to their sex partners. The incubation period—the time from exposure to gonorrhea until symptoms develop—is usually 2 to 5 days, but sometimes symptoms may not develop for up to 30 days. Gonorrhea causes no long-term problems if it is treated before any complications develop. Left untreated, gonorrhea can lead to serious complications: In women, untreated gonorrhea can cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), which can lead to infertility or ectopic pregnancy. In men, untreated gonorrhea may cause epididymitis. Gonorrhea Rapid Screening Test is a special test kit designed to detect Gonorrhea (Neisseria Gonorrhoeae) antigen in urine/swab.
