This is a kind of bacteria that can develop and grow easily in the warm, damp areas of the reproductive trails like the cervix (part that is opening to the womb), uterus (womb), fallopian tubes like egg canals in women and urine canal or urethra in men and women. The bacteria can also grow inside the mouth, throat, eyes, and anus.

Causes of Gonorrhea:

This virus can affect any person who is sexually active beyond any age or group.   Some research says if a woman has vaginal interaction with a man who has the infections, there are 60   to 90 percent chances that she can get affected by this virus, whereas if a man has vaginal sex with a woman who has the infections, the probabilities are lower, 30 to 50 percent. Generally, this infection is found in sexually vigorous teenagers and young adults.  It can also be transmitted from a mother to a baby. Symptoms are even been found in the teenagers of 15 to 20 years.

In men initially no significant symptoms are found. However, the man who is affected by the disease can have very frequent urination; sometimes in the urine an existence of blood particles are found; a yellow discharge from the penis that looks like pus or redness on the penis and swellings in the glands in the groins.

Exams and tests:

The doctors mostly do various physical examinations of the patient.  They check the softness of the area of sex organs in a woman and the pus-filled emancipations from the vagina or penis. In the laboratory the sample discharges are been put on a special bacteria shield and it is been checked if the bacteria grows and till what extend. They also conduct a white-blood cell count. At times, a fever can also show the infection. Nowadays, most of the clinics have kept urine kits which can monitor the gonorrhea germs. As Gram stain is found as a quicker laboratory test that can be done in some clinics. This Gram stain of a sample that is taken from the urethra or a cervix helps the doctors to see the Gonorrhea bacteria through microscope. But this works well in men than the  women.

Some doctors also suggest that in some certain cases the Cefixime 400 mg should be taken orally once a day or Ceftraxone 125 mg IM can also be taken as single dose. Or else Ofloxacin 400 mg can be taken orally in a solitary amount with Azithromycin 1 g. Patients always should check with the doctor or consult a doctor before taking any antibiotics. Some most recent treatment includes Ceftriaxone, Cefixime, Hydration, Ofloxacin etc. The numerous antibiotics can successfully treat gonorrhea in teenagers as well as adults.
