Details
Who should take the test?

Gonorrhea is known as a widespread infection. Therefore, it is important to get tested if there is suspicion or as a preventive measure.

Gonorrhea can cause infections in and around the genitals, rectum, and throat. Without treatment, the bacteria can penetrate deeper layers of tissue, where they can cause chronic inflammation. For women, this can lead to significant complications: inflammation of the fallopian tubes and ovaries can result in adhesions and consequently infertility. Additionally, an untreated gonorrhea infection can increase the risk of HIV infection.

Our Gonorrhea Test for Women is suitable for sexually active women who want to stay informed about their sexual health. Women under 25 years old and older women with new or multiple sexual partners should get tested for gonorrhea every year.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is transmitted through sexual contact and often presents without symptoms in women. Gonorrhea can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. Symptoms such as discharge and burning during urination indicate the infection. Without treatment, the bacteria can penetrate deeper tissue layers, leading to chronic inflammation. This can result in significant complications for women, including inflammation of the fallopian tubes and ovaries, which can lead to adhesions and infertility. Untreated gonorrhea infection can also increase the risk of HIV infection.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

How is gonorrhea transmitted?

Gonorrhea is typically transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex, with an infected person. It can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth.

Who should consider taking the Gonorrhea Test for Women?

The test is recommended for sexually active women who want to monitor their sexual health, especially those under 25 years old and older women with new or multiple sexual partners.

What are the symptoms of gonorrhea in women?

Symptoms may include burning sensation during urination, increased vaginal discharge, and spotting between periods. However, gonorrhea can also be asymptomatic in many cases.

Why does a gonorrhea infection often lead to infertility in women?

This is because the infection often proceeds without symptoms, remaining unnoticed and untreated. The bacteria can then ascend unchecked. The inflammation spreads to the uterine lining, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. The consequences of such a long undetected infection include chronic lower abdominal pain and infertility. Therefore, regular testing for gonorrhea should be conducted even without symptoms.

What happens if I become infected with gonorrhea during pregnancy?

Infection with gonorrhea during pregnancy can cause inflammation of the cervix and uterine lining. This increases the risk of complications such as preterm birth.
