Sexual Transmission is The Main Cause Of Gonorrhea Infection

Main Cause Of Gonorrhea Infection

How does gonorrhea spread? Gonorrhea can be transmitted through clothing, swimming pools, sexual contact and mother-to-child transmission. Let’s take a look at the specific transmission routes of gonorrhea.

1. Contact-by-contact transmission

It means that clothes, utensils, bedpans, baths, swimming pools, old newspapers, magazines, car handrails, stamps, banknotes, syringes, etc., which are most easily neglected by people, are infected by STD patients.

Spread through swimming pools

Generally speaking, Treponema pallidum, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and HIV will die soon after they leave the human body, but if they meet the right conditions, some of them can also survive for a certain period of time.

Treponema pallidum likes to live in warm, humid and hypoxic environment. The living characteristics of Gonorrhea diplococcus are afraid of drying.

If the swimming pool water is not disinfected strictly and managed poorly, the concentration of acidity, alkalinity, carbon dioxide and disinfectant in the water reaches the standard.

Bathtub propagation

Several cases of STD patients have been found to reflect that after traveling abroad and using the hotel bathtub and towel to wash, they came back suffering from gonorrhea, condyloma acuminatum, trichomonal vaginitis and so on.

The bathtub and towel are often in a humid, warm and unventilated environment, providing a breeding and survival hotbed for most pathogens.

Dissemination through clothing

Some people once worshipped buying old clothes as a fashion, especially those from development zones or foreign countries.

The clothes of patients with venereal diseases, especially underwear, were infected with venereal pathogens and exiled in the market without disinfection. Healthy people could easily be infected by wearing them.

Of course, there are many ways to spread sexually transmitted diseases, so people should be vigilant, strengthen the awareness of prevention, and strengthen the awareness of the easily neglected ways.

2. Direct Contact Infection

Direct contact with injured skin, mucosa or secretions of STD patients can also be transmitted, such as multiple pathogens of STD, such as jujube gonorrhoeae diplococcus and Treponema pallidum, can be transmitted by kissing.

Gonorrhea diplococcus often has no symptoms after infecting the oral cavity, but it can survive in the oral cavity for a long time and become a “carrier of oral gonorrhea diplococcus”.

3. Sexual transmission

It is the main way of STD transmission. Prostitution and prostitutes are the source of sexually transmitted diseases.

4. Vertical mother-to-child transmission

Women with STDs transmit the pathogens of STDs to the fetus during pregnancy or childbirth, which causes intrauterine infection and causes gonorrhea in the newborn, or Chlamydia conjunctivitis, herpes, AIDS, etc., affecting the development and growth of the newborn.

To sum up, it is the transmission route of gonorrhea. Sexual contact, direct contact, indirect contact and mother-to-child transmission are the main ways leading to gonorrhea transmission.

Therefore, we should keep away from these behavioral habits which may be infected with gonorrhea and strengthen the prevention of gonorrhea. Strive for early detection and early treatment.

Treatment measures for acute gonorrhea include:

1. Drug therapy

Ofloxacin can be taken (which is not suitable for allergic patients), 0.4g (4 capsules) each time, once a day in the morning and afternoon, and the symptoms can be greatly alleviated after five or six consecutive days of taking the medicine. Next, take a cheaper dose of norfloxacin 10 tablets a day until you recover.

2. Physical Exercise

It not only enhances blood circulation, delivers drugs to lesions faster, but also enhances immunity and resistance. Do not have sex here, and drink more boiled water every day to help the bacteria out of the body.

3. External disinfection

The genitals can be cleaned with Iodophor and other disinfection and sterilization solutions to keep them clean and dry. In addition, we should also pay attention to the clothes do not mix with other people to prevent infection.
