Gonorrhoea gains high resistance

As a threat to STD treatments, reports from medical institutions indicate that Gonorrhoea is rapidly getting highly drug resistant. If the situation goes like this, Gonorrhoea will become an untreatable disease due to the continuing emergence of antimicrobial resistance.

An injection of Ceftriaxone and an Azithromycin pill are supposed to be used in combination, while some online pharmacies are offering only oral medication. Using just one of the two drugs makes it easier for the bacterium to develop resistance. As the affected patients have inhibitions to openly consult a doctor, most of them prefer online pharmacies and that makes the situation worst.

Gonorrhoea is caused by the bacterium called Neisseria gonorrhoea. The infection is spread by unprotected vaginal, oral and anal sex. Symptoms can include a thick green or yellow discharge from sexual organs, pain when urinating and bleeding between periods. Untreated infection can lead to infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease and can be passed on to a child during pregnancy.
