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.

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.

  • 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’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.
