Why Gonorrhea Testing Matter
With early diagnosis and antibiotic treatment, STD gonorrhea can be cured. The earlier the treatment actions are taken, the easier it is to be cured, and less lesions will occur. So the early diagnostics are important to the treatment of this disease. In developed countries, regular screening test are recommended for the women active at sexual action. Rapid test kits such as NGH rapid test cassette and NGH antibody dot test kit are a good choice for this purpose.
There is a close connection between gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia, syphilis and HIV infection. For example, studies prove that 50% of the persons who infected with gonorrhea also are infected with Chlamydia. So, all the patients who have tested positive for gonorrhea should test for other sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia, syphilis and HIV.
Gonorrhea is a serious sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae. After Chlamydia, gonorrhea is regarded as the second most common STD.
Infected women are asymptomatic half the time or have vaginal discharge and pelvic pain. The common symptoms in men are burning with urination and penile discharge. If gonorrhea is left untreated, it may spread all over the body, causing epididymitis or pelvic inflammatory disease, affecting joints and heart valves, and can cause infertility in as many as 10% of infected women.
Newborn infants can be infected during delivery, which causes eye infections in neonates and can eventually leads to blindness.
