SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea (gon-or-e-uh) is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a type of bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoea. Gonorrhea can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, and oral sex from a partner infected in his or her throat, vagina, urethra, or anus. It can also be passed from mother to newborn during childbirth. Gonorrheal infections are curable with antibiotics.
