Gonorėja ir nevaisingumas

Gonore is one of the most contagious sexually transmitted infections we have in the world, and can result in serious complications such as infertility if you do not get treatment on time. The gonococcal bacteria makes the infected woman sterile by spreading and damaging the fallopian tube through the cervix, but it can also make men infertile by damaging the bitumen.

Gonore makes the woman sterile by forming scars in the fallopian tube

If the gonococcus spreads to the mucous membranes of the ovary and stays undetected for too long, it will eventually occur scarring in the canal as mature eggs usually move in on the way to the uterus after conception. Over time, this will cause cysts to form, as the egg can not pass the channel. If the fallopian tube is broken, the woman will become sterile and lose the ability to make children, and in other cases it will lead to a significantly increased risk of ectopic pregnancy, where the egg can not get into the uterus and stick outside. This can be potentially fatal and is a very serious condition, requiring immediate treatment in the form of surgery.

Gonore and infertility in men

In humans, the likelihood of infertility and scarring is less because gonorrhea in men most often debutes early with clear symptoms in the form of kisses and discharge from the penis. This does not mean that men will be completely free to become infertile, as the bacterium can cause irreversible damage to the seminal and bitters if the disease is not treated in time.

Gonore and risk groups for sterility

Young women are in the high risk group of gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases. The reason for this is that young people change partners more often and practice more often unprotected sex. Young people are unfortunately also worse at testing, especially because they feel stigmatized or owls.

It is advisable that parents and young people are open to sexually transmitted diseases, contraception and tests.
Test yourself for multiple sexually transmitted diseases at the same time, because the likelihood is great that you also have more infections at the same time.

If you fall into one of the risk groups, it’s important that you get tested so that you avoid serious complications of gonore and further spread of the infection:
