Gonorrhea Female / Bacterial STD
Gonorrhea is a highly infectious and curable bacterial sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoea.
Like most sexually transmitted diseases, this gonorrhea bacterium has a strong affinity for the moist warm areas of the mucous membranes. Certain areas of the body (lining of the eyelid, throat, fallopian tubes, anus, rectum, urethra, vagina, cervix, and endometrium) are lined with special cells that have a rapid turnover rate and are especially vulnerable to the gonorrhea bacterium. Gonorrhea is oftentimes referred to as the clap.

Primary Mode Gonorrhea Transmission:
Any mucous membrane contact with infected secretions or semen will spread gonorrhea. The mucous membrane areas of the body are listed above. All forms of sexual activity are involved in transmission.
A woman, who has not engaged in anal sex, may be anally infected also, if she spreads the infection from her vagina, while using the bathroom, spreading the highly infectious
bacterium with toilet paper.
Although it is generally accepted that gonorrhea is not spread by sitting on toilet seats, or casual hand touching, there have been some cases where the toilet seat transmission idea has been questioned. Since a female may physically expose her mucous lined membranes, by sitting on a toilet seat, it is not impossible to surmise that transmission could be possible in this way.
I believe that exhibiting caution in a public bathroom, especially a nightclub bathroom, is in order. Try to keep your hands and body from touching all surfaces, as much as possible. Wash your hands with hot water and soap before leaving and use a paper towel, to open the exit door to leave.
(Because nasty people do not wash their hands.)
Gonorrhea eye infections can result from touching the eyes after coming into contact with the gonorrhea bacterium.
Women usually have no idea that they have gonorrhea. In order words, they are asymptomatic,
which means "exhibiting no symptoms". Just because a woman has no symptoms does not mean that they are not fully capable of spreading virulent gonorrhea to everyone who does not use correct protection.
The general state of the womans immune system will determine if woman exhibits symptoms, usually with 7-21 days of exposure. (Go to my
Natural Remedies for Allergy for more detailed information about the immune system, factors that raise susceptibility to disease and fortifying the immune system.)
Let me give you, dear woman, the facts, plain and simple: If a woman has unprotected sex with a partner that has not been tested (and proven to be free) of a sexually transmitted disease, she should assume that she has contacted some form of a sexually transmitted disease. She should go and be tested as soon as possible!
IF a woman exhibits symptoms of gonorrhea, they are usually the following:
- Frequent and painful urination. She may think that she has a urinary infection. Pus may be seen on the opening of the urethra.
- A cloudy, white streaked vaginal discharge and itching. She may confuse this with a yeast infection. The vaginal discharge may turn to yellow (colored by dead white blood cells due to the gonorrhea infection) as the bacterium floods the region and spreads. Sometimes blood is seen in the discharge and there is an unexplained feeling of not being right in the pelvic region. Unexplained pelvic pain is sometimes noted.
- Anally, with or without anal sex, defecation may be uncomfortable, or painful. They may be a discharge from the rectum, that is blood tinged or milky looking.
- The throat and mouth may be sore and red. Oftentimes there are no symptoms of mouth and throat infection.
- Inflammation of the eyelids, redness, itching and a pus-like discharge from the eyes.
How Gonorrhea Is Treated:
The most important rule is dealing with Gonorrhea is being tested for the correct diagnosis. Never forget that sexually transmitted diseases can come in threes and you have no real idea what you may have been exposed to. Anything is possible when you dont use a condom during intercourse, or a dental dam during oral sex. And condoms have never been approved to promote safe anal sex.
I have seen the websites promising to cure Sexually Transmitted Diseases by self-diagnosis and self-treatment. I know that women do not want to go to a doctor and talk about this, or worse yet, let it get out that they have contacted gonorrhea. But you simply have no choice.
You had unprotected sex and now it is time to bite the bullet!
Dont be fooled! If you have any symptoms at all, they are usually similar to Chlamydia. You really dont know what you have unless a laboratory runs a test to find out for sure. Most good doctors will go ahead and treat you for
Chlamydia at the same time he/she is treating you for Gonorrhea. The round of antibiotics usually cost less than the additional test for Chlamydia.
Antibiotics are used to treat Gonorrhea and other curable bacterial sexually transmitted diseases. Antibiotics are powerful toxic poisons that broadly kill any bacteria, good and bad, in your body. Women sometimes get a cold or the flu, or secondary bladder infection, after taking antibiotics. The immune is lowered further by the antibiotics, which are necessary to kill the gonorrhea. Go to
Yeast Infection Remedy to learn what to do to boost your resistance to more infections, prevent yeast infections during antibiotic therapy and what destroys your immune system leaving you prey to infections.
Are you one of those stupid people who believe that if gonorrhea is treatable with antibiotics, you say, Whats the big deal? I got the clap and now I am cured? So what?
You need to read further....
The most troubling aspect about gonorrhea treatment is that people fail to understand that antibiotic resistance to the disease is fast approaching. The bacterium that causes gonorrhea has been quietly mutating itself to side step an antibiotic from killing it. I dont know about you, but the idea of having disease that
cannot be cured scares the crap out of me. The gonorrhea bacterium has
already mutated in CA and Hawaii and in some cases in MA, rendering the usual
We may wake up one day and find ourselves being told, I am sorry, but the usual antibiotics use to work, but now, we need to give you this new genetically engineered antibiotic. We just dont know what the long-term effects this genetically modified substance will have upon your DNA and the correct replication of your cells. We need you to sign this paper releasing us from all future liability. We just dont know what will happen to you, down the line from taking this. It is simply unknown at this time. But we dont have a choice in the matter
its all weve got to help you
Does that this sound far-fetched to you? Think again! Antibiotic resistance is a big problem, growing BIGGER everyday. The 3.5 million people being treated for gonorrhea each year, and the rest of the people spreading it (usually unknowingly) are perpetuating this enormous problem.
Never fall under the illusion that antibiotics will always be available to cure you. During a national crisis, do you really believe that the Federal Government will favor giving you antibiotics for the clap, over an infant that is fighting botulism, or anthrax, after being infected by a terrorist? Do you really believe that those individuals diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease will receive as much attention, care and drugs, as people who have been sickened by terrorists? PAY ATTENTION: WE DO NOT HAVE A LIMITLESS SUPPLY OF ANTIBIOTICS!!!! Priorities will prevail!
What Can Happen If Gonorrhea Is Not Treated:
The Gonorrhea bacterium replicates very rapidly in the body. Even a person in prime health cannot lick it alone. Once a person is infected,
treatment is a requirement, not an option. Ignoring it will not make it go
If you neglect not seeing a doctor after having unprotected sex, the gonorrhea will simply keep multiplying. As the gonorrhea bacterium progresses toward its domination of your body, Pelvic Inflammatory disease, which can be fatal, sets in. Infertility follows.
Symptoms of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease:
· Fever, night sweats. Muscular aches, and extreme fatigue.
· Lower abdominal back pain and pelvic pain.
· Painful intercourse.
· Bleeding between menstrual periods.
· Nausea, feeling sick over certain smells, or foods. Lightheaded and dizzy. Feeling shaky inside and not well. A strong inner sense of something being very wrong with your body. Listen carefully to your body, it is seldom wrong.
Long Term Systemic Illness:
Systemic means throughout the whole body. As the gonorrhea bacterium makes it way throughout all of your cells, seeking domination, it becomes very difficult to detect. It is very smart at this point. It has modified itself to survive long term inside of your cells and is very happy to live inside of you.
Symptoms of Systemic Gonorrhea Syndrome:
Doctors are very concerned about how millions of people are diagnosed with simple arthritis, when in fact, they actually
may have a mis-diagnosed case of long-term gonorrhea infection. The worst part is, as the person is told that it is just simple arthritis, the gonorrhea marches on and the person really feels lousy most of the time. Even if joint pain is reduced, the rest of the symptoms march on and greatly reduce the quality of the persons life. The person could have been infected years earlier and does not normally associate their current symptoms with past exposure to gonorrhea. The medical term for this illness is: Systemic Gonorrhea Syndrome.
- Inflamed joints, bones, tendons and other muscular tissues.
- Mild fever sometimes intermittently.
- General lousy feeling, chronic aches, and low strength. Chronic tiredness.
- Skin lesions.
These individuals are usually handled by being told things like, You need to reduce your stress, its all in your head, I cant really find anything wrong with you, and you need to get more rest. Everybody is tired these days.
