There’s conflicting information out there about gonorrhea during pregnancy being linked to miscarriage. Many sources claim that an untreated infection can be linked to risk of miscarriage, and at least one study has found that having untreated gonorrhea can be linked to increased risk of a preterm birth. If you have gonorrhea during pregnancy, you may have a greater risk of miscarriage, infection of the amniotic sac and fluid, preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM), and preterm birth, although prompt treatment reduces the risk of these problems. Gonorrhea, if untreated, can lead to an increased risk in miscarriage and premature birth. In addition, gonorrhea can be passed from mother to newborn baby during vaginal delivery, which can lead to a severe eye infection if left untreated. If detected, gonorrhea is very easily treated in the infant.

If this happens, this could lead to the embryo implanting itself in the fallopian tube causing a tubal pregnancy, which is a serious complication that will result in a miscarriage and can be life. Gonorrhea is a common STD in the United States. Untreated gonococcal infection in pregnancy has been linked to miscarriages, premature birth and low birth weight, premature rupture of membranes, and chorioamnionitis.

If you come into contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus of. In this condition, the cervical muscles are weaker and are not able to hold the fetus. It may occur as a result of a previous injury to the cervix such as after a surgery.

Due to the weakness of muscles, the cervix may open too early often during the second trimester of pregnancy resulting in miscarriage. It can increase the risk of having a preterm baby. Rarely, the new baby can get the infection during delivery and have a vaginal discharge after birth. Although there is no conclusive evidence that gonorrhea causes pregnancy loss, several studies have linked the sexually transmitted infection with miscarriage, preterm labor, and ectopic pregnancy (if it goes untreated long enough to cause PID).   Gonorrhea infection during birth can also cause life-threatening health problems for a baby. You can protect yourself against gonorrhea by using condoms during intercourse.

If you already have it, gonorrhea.

  • An old saying we used in our early days of nursing, 1970’s:
    Beware, beware of the toilet seat;
    For the spirochete can jump six feet ��������

  • Can a person get infected with Gonorrhoea or Chlymidia if an uncovered dildo is inserted in his anus?
    Assuming that this dildo was not shared during the act with other person but may be it was used one hour ago before this incident by some other person.
    So, basically, I just want to know for how long does the above mentioned STIs survive outside human body on a surface such as a dildo?

  • G’day Doc my son caught it & he had injection + 2 tablets you described late yesterday afternoon. He said he now doesn’t have any of the symptoms, i also said to him see that will make you put a raincoat ( condom ) on in future ��. Your explanations are very very thorough, keep up the great work & men always remember NO BALLOON NO PARTY ����. PS men are lucky now back in the day they used to use the umbrella to treat it, I’d say it would be more painful than the sti but thankfully I’ve never caught it

  • I had this last year but the only person that could have possibly given it to me, (I get tested after every partner) tested negative for it. Is there an explanation for this?

  • I’ve slept with so many girls off Tinder, always been good and wore a condom. A few days ago I slept with a new one and we were really drunk and agreed that I don’t wear a condom. Feel like I may have contracted it, I have a very mild itching sensation in my urethra and I noticed a couple drops of some white fluid come out of the tip of my dick about an hour ago. The 1 damn time I don’t wear a condom, I probably caught an std lol.

  • Can cefuroxime axetil 500mg can cure gonorrhea? If it can how many would i take each day? And how many days? 7days? Thanks if noticed ��

  • Hello doctor, I got tested positive for Chlamydia. They gave me Azithromycin 4 tabs. And doxy for 14 days. 2 per day.
    Although my symptoms went away for few days. But now they soon came back. There is zero chance of me getting reinfected. Please help. What should I do?

  • I got tested positive for Gonorrhea last week and the main most irritating symptom is painful erections, like painful to the point where I can’t have them. Is that a common symptom of Gonorrhea?

  • Hi DOC
    Thanks for the information
    I am having great respect for you after this video
    My question is:
    Does pain in chest and body also a sign?

  • Gonorrhea is an Australasian word. A gonor is person who is socially isolated. A Rhea is a flightless bird with a small head and a big bum, that scratch’s a lot. Those aborigines were pretty creative when it came to naming things. They got the letraset long before the Poles did. They also invented the language “Guugu imuthirr” which people naturally speak when at the dentist.

  • But what if you have discharges right. But the symptoms are almost the same as Hemorrhoids than what do you do? Like do you ask for a test for hemorrhoids an it comes back an they can see what you have?

  • Give a like for awareness of video not for geting the illness…:))))
    Proud to be a virgin at 24.PS I never thoght I would say that in my life. And one thing: I AM ATHEIST!!!NOT CHRISTIAN!!!!

  • I already treated with doxyciline twice the first time includes the cetrafioxine injection last week. but somehow when i wear tight underwear my tip of penis somehow stick but the discharge is only too little. Sometimes its uncomfortable. What can i do?

  • Can I get medicine discreetly need to know asap. Man I was a 31 old virgin a month ago messed with this chick and caught it on first go. Never again. Fk! I’m pissed off with myself. Need to go to hospital in the morning.

  • Hi Dr.Sam, is Gonorrhea and Chlamydia the same? And what is the total cost of the whole process?(getting tested, doctor’s consultant, treatment)?
    And do you have an email account where I can ask you question personally?

  • Hey Sam thinks for the info. They gave me Rocephin 250mg and 1 gram of Zithromax at the hospital. And what kind of accent is that u have? lol

  • learnt a lot. but for studies sake is it possible or are the chances of nonsexually active teenages or adults or a virgin having Gonorrhea symptoms?

  • Syphilis is called “the great deceiver” because its symptoms can be so varied. Nothing can rule it out for sure other than being tested by a doctor. See a doctor and follow their instructions.

  • @Dr Sam Bailey. I was tested positive for Gonorrhea and I was given levofloxacin 750mg for one week I took them all as directed by the doctor but all the minor symptoms such as abdominal pain,Genital itching,and nausea went away but I still had pains in my penis when I urinate and I’ve realized there is always a little bit of urine that comes out after urinating what might be the cause for this?

  • would it be fair to say a smooth circular rash on the penis 5 days after exposure that left after a month, with no other possible symptoms what so ever since, from the event being nearly a year ago, would rule it out? I realise you could not give specific feedback without siggesting doctor, but typically, does it ‘require’ in almost all cases, rashes on the hands and palms, or the other symptoms described?

  • so I was freaking out just about 5 minutes ago till I received a call from my doctor, I had the same symptoms and it turned out it just a kidney infection When I visit the hospital the doctor gave me a shot and 4 pills of antibiotic, if you are having these symptoms you should go straight to your doctor so you’ll feel better mentally what I did I just went straight to the emergency room $400 fuck it

  • Six with min??
    Couldn’t t figure out what it meant
    So I checked out the NZ guide to NZ ENGLISH
    IT MEANS…..don t blush… it means..SEX WITH MEN…

  • Im Male and had sex with someone with a condom. The next day my penis has a warm/burning sensation. Shaft and towards the bottom under my sack area. It’s been 5 days and still have a warm/burning feeling. It does feel like it goes away some times but will come back. Or it’s very mild. I don’t have any other symptoms besides that. No discharge and no burning when I pee. Any idea what it could be? Could it be an allergic reaction? Maybe to the condom or lube used? If so how long does it usually last? Thank you.
