  7. 7. JournalJournal What do you know about Gonorrhea? I know that Gonorrhea is a type of bacterial STD and can be treated with antibiotics. I also know that the bacterial types of STDs are not permanent but can still be very painful. Also, the infectious types of STDs can be fatal and may very well last forever, though there are medicines to help reduce their symptoms. I also know that if an STD is not caught quickly enough, the carrier could end up in a lot of pain, or in some cases, even dead.
