The rise of the superbug Gonorrhea
Gonorrhea is currently easily treatable with antibiotics. Emerging antibiotic resistance may soon change that.
Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae that infects the throat, genitals, and rectum. Many cases are asymptomatic, but symptoms can include burning or discomfort when urinating, abnormal bleeding between periods, and swollen testicles. If left untreated, it can cause infertility. Gonorrhea can also be passed to newborns during vaginal birth and cause blindness in the baby.
