Gonorrhea is an infection with the bacteriaum 'Nisseria gohorrhoea (GC) which causes gonorrheal infections "the second most commonly reported communicable disease" and which are "easily treated with appropriate antibiotics, but drug-resistant strains are on the rise." (Cook County Department of Health, nd)
This condition is caused by bacteria. It is passed from an infected partner during sexual activity. This contact could be with the genitals, mouth, or rectal area.
The lack of difference in the rates of repeat gonorrhea infection by region of birth might be attributable to access of care. In the U.S. Army, all active duty personnel have access to free medical care. In this regard, African-American personnel, who are from the south and are low-income before military service, would then have higher health care access. This may result in rates of repeat gonorrhea infection being similar by region of birth after joining the U.S. Army. Another possibility is that region of birth is a key determinant of gonorrhea incidence, but not for repeat infections, and other behavioral, biological, and socio-cultural factors may influence the risk of repeat infection among women. Newmand and Berman (2008), report
Give background/facts of STDs. “These findings are helpful for understanding chronic pain patients and the challenges they face, but why is teaching important for this group? Patients facing these hardships feel a lack of control over their lives, and have reduced self-confidence. This increases the risk that chronic patients will not adhere to treatment protocols and will have reduced ability and desire to self-manage care (Barrie, 2010). During a teaching session, the nurse is able to provide nonjudgmental and respectful support. It is an opportunity to honestly discuss the importance of compliance, risks and adverse effects associated with that treatment, and to provide information about pain relief
People who practice anal intercourse can get gonorrhea of the rectum. Even women who do not
exposure, but they can take up to 30 days to develop. Gonorrhea symptoms in women include:
Phylogenetic trees are a useful tool in looking at individuals (Hill et al. 2016). Knowing this, we can look at the evolutionary history of that particular bacteria, and discover how it has evolved. Phylogeny can trace closely related bacterial species to Neisseria gonorrhoeae. From this, we can discover characteristics that have been derived in gonorrhea that differ from the common ancestor of the bacterial species. N. menigitidis and N. lactamica are the closely the evolutionary history of diseases. The bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae was primarily found within infected related bacterial species to N. gonorrhoeae (Bennett 2007). Each pathogen is known to effect humans. Since N. gonorrhoeae have uniformity, the closely related species help to sort out and identify these strains using multilocus sequence typing (Bennett 2007). The uniformity in the strains of gonorrhea suggest they have a fitness that is
Gonorrhea is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. If gonorrhea is not treated early, it can cause serious problems, especially in women. About one million American men and women contract gonorrhea each year. Transmission is very easy to contract gonorrhea. You can contract it from unprotected anal, vaginal, and oral sex. Gonorrhea can be found on the tip of the penis, in the anus, in the vagina, in the throat, and also in the eye. You can also get gonorrhea from secondary contact. For example, if you have gonorrhea and you touch the infected part with your hand you now have the disease on your hand if you now touch your eye it is possible for you to get it in your eye. Symptoms are not always obvious. It is possible to have gonorrhea and not have any symptoms. If symptoms do appear it will usually take from one to two weeks for anything to appear. Some possible symptoms could be discharge from the penis or vagina, the need to urinate often, burning or pain when urinating and in women bleeding between
Gonorrhea and chlamydia are sexually transmitted diseases that tend to be more apparent in males than females. Men tend to develop symptoms within days of the initial infection; they usually manifest as inflammation of the urethra, painful urination, and abnormal discharge. Symptoms are so obvious that men seek immediate medical attention before complications occur; women on the other hand, tend to have little to no symptoms at all. A female’s symptoms are so mild that they are often mistaken as a simple bladder or vaginal infection and go untreated. Unfortunately, these diseases do not go away on their own if gonorrhea and chlamydia are not properly treated
Sexually transmitted diseases in the United States are on the rise after several years of decline. Three STD’s in particular are a concern to health care providers: gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis. The CDC reports that the reports for chlamydia are up 27% from four years ago (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2016). The numbers are even more startling when looking at these three STD’s in St. Louis city. I ask these questions when writing the brief: 1.) Does St. Louis address these rising concerns differently than other metropolitan areas in the nation? And 2.) What have other cities done in the United States to combat the growing number of teenagers and young adults with STDs.
Sexual Transmitted Infections (STIs) were previously known as “venereal diseases”, which is derived from Veneris or Venus, Roman goddess of love. A STI is a germ (virus, bacteria, or parasite) that can cause illness inside a person without exhibiting symptoms and is usually spread by vaginal, anal, or oral sex. A STD however refers to the infection causing the symptoms/problems. According to our textbook, there are over 20 known types of STIs and approximately 110 million people are living with one in the United States. Though they are called “sexually” transmitted infections, they can also be contracted through contact with blood and breastfeeding. American ecologist and
Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted contamination that has been known not resulting to medieval times. The exact time when gonorrhea began can't be found. Most auspicious records of the pain are found from 1611 when the English parliament embraced a law to guarantee that the spread of the sullying is diminished and controlled. This demonstrates the measure of the general wellbeing issue this spoiling had acted then. Regardless, and, in light of present circumstances the clarification behind the illness was unknown.This was trailed by a relative law in 1256 in France amidst the standard of Louis IX. The side effects of the spoiling were watched when the crusaders lay attack of Acre. After the Pope Boniface secularized the showing of pharmaceutical,
STD’s stand for sexualy transmited diseases and they are very dangerous. Two STDs are gonorrhea and genital warts. Both of these STDs have many similarities. Gonorrhea and genital warts are similar because they both can be contracted the same way which can be through having sex. They can also be prevented the same way which is to practice safe sex, wear condoms, and not to have sex with more than one person. They are also alike because the can be treated in similar ways because they can both be treated by medication. The more both diseases are left on they get worse and worse causing other bad things. That is how both STD’s are similar.
Syphilis is an infection caused by a bacteria called Treponema Pallidum (CDC, 2004). This bacteria is extremely fragile, and cannot be spread during contact with
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the obligate human pathogen that causes the sexually transmitted disease (STD) gonorrhea. This Gram-negative diplococci/gonococci does not infect other animals or experimental animals and does not survive freely in the environment. The gonococcal infection occurs in the upper or lower tract, pharynx, ophthalmic area, rectum, and bloodstream. During the 1980’s gonorrhea was also referred to as “the clap” when public awareness was quite minimal. This was one of the venereal diseases prostitutes hoped to contract since it resulted in infertility by pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). As documentation, diagnostic testing, and public awareness improved, there has been a decline
