Gonorrhea is a highly contagious sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is spread through unprotected sexual contact with an infected person, making it the most commonly reported notifiable disease in the United States. If left untreated, gonorrhea can cause serious health problems, including pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and an increased risk of HIV. Treatment includes antibiotics and regular testing to ensure that no secondary infections have developed. Early diagnosis and treatment is important for improving overall health outcomes and reducing the risk of transmission.
