Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease caused by bacteria. It can occur in anyone who is having sex and can be asymptomatic or cause abnormal discharge, burning with urination, testicular pain, vaginal bleeding between periods, pelvic pain, sore throat, or rectal pain, bleeding or discharge. Having gonorrhea can increase your risk of getting HIV. In severe cases, it can result in infertility, joint or blood stream infection, or increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Rates of gonorrhea are increasing throughout the U.S., and more people are getting gonorrhea that is resistant to some of the antibiotics used to treat it. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about half of all gonorrhea infections each year are resistant to at least one antibiotic.

We have been monitoring local trends in antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea to make sure that the recommended drug treatment is working. Our goal is to quickly identify, treat, and stop the spread of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea. Your first step is to get tested and treated! If you still have symptoms after completing treatment, be sure to get tested again. Use condoms to protect yourself from gonorrhea and other STDs.
