  • 1. Gonorrhea Dominic Garihan 2 nd Period November 12,2010
  • 2. Gonorrhea
    • Definition: “A common treatable sexually transmitted disease which primarily infects the reproductive tract and which is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhea .” (Dr. Chang )
  • 3. Symptoms
    • “Some men will be asymptomatic, but most will experience urinary discomfort and a purulent urethral discharge.” (Chang)
    • “In women, the disease is more likely to be asymptomatic. Women with symptoms may have purulent vaginal discharge, urinary discomfort, urethral discharge, lower abdominal discomfort, or pain with intercourse.” (Chang)
  • 4. How Do You Get It?
    • “ Causes: Bacterial infection through intercourse
    • { DR. Chang}
  • 5. How do you Prevent It?
    • “safe sex. This includes the use of barrier contraceptives, such as condoms, and the avoidance of high-risk sexual behaviors. Contact tracing is another important element to STD treatment. It notifies the patient’s sexual partners of their exposure to gonorrhea or other STDs.” (Dr. Chang)
  • 6. How do you Treat it?
    • “ Treatment for gonorrhea consists of antibiotics . With the development of penicillin-resistant strains of gonorrhea, effective therapy relies on antibiotics to which gonorrhea remains susceptible, such as ceftriaxone. In uncomplicated cases of gonorrheal infection, such as cervicitis, a single dose is given.” (Dr.Chang)
  • 7. Journal
    • What I know about STD’S is that they can kill you if you don’t get it checked and it isn't good for your body. To prevent this happening to you use “Protection” so that you don’t get STD’S but it doesn't always works. But this diseases some of them you don’t die from it but also most of them you do die but you just have to be careful what you do and know what you do before you do it.
