The UK has achieved an unenviable world first with news that a British man has been diagnosed witha strain of gonorrhoea so far resistant to all antibioticsnormally used to treat the disease.

The sexually transmitted bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae, identified almost 140 years ago, causes unpleasant symptoms and, often, acute embarrassment – but it is an infection we’ve become accustomed to being easily curable with a simple course of that miracle of modern medicine: antibiotics.
>>
This man’s so far untreatable case of gonorrhoea may be a first, but it’s an inevitable development in a wider crisis, where common infections have becomeprogressively harder to treat.
>>
In the United States, 30 percent of new gonorrhea infections are resistant to at least one drug, according to theCenters for Disease Control. The agency believes the trend is a public-health threat.

Each year,around 400,000 cases are reported, but820,000 new infections may actuallybe occurring, according to the CDC.

Gonorrhea is becoming harder and in some cases impossible to treat with antibiotics, the World Health Organization said.
>>
Gonorrheais a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can infect both men and women. It can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat.

Gonorrhea is caused by the bacteriumNeisseria gonorrhoeae.

Gonorrhea can be passed from mother to baby during delivery.

Gonorrhea andchlamydiacan be experienced simultaneously.

If untreated, gonorrhea can increase a person's risk of acquiring or transmittingHIV.
>>
Symptoms may be absent despite an active gonorrheal infection. Symptoms can appear anywhere from1-14 daysfollowing exposure to the infection.

Men and women experience slightly different symptoms; these can include:
>>
Men:

white, yellow, or green urethral discharge, resemblingpuspain in the testicles or scrotumpainful or frequent urinationanal discharge,
itching, pain, bleeding, or pain when passing stools
itching, difficulty swallowing, or swollen neck lymph nodeseye pain, light sensitivity, or eye discharge resembling pusred, swollen, warm, painful joints
>>
Women:

painful sexual intercourse
fever,
yellow or green vaginal discharge
vulvar swelling/bleeding in-between periods heavier periods bleeding after intercourse
vomiting and abdominal or pelvic painpainful or frequent urinationanal discharge, itching, pain, bleeding, or pain with passing bowel movements
sore throat, itching, difficulty swallowing, or swollen neck lymph nodes
eye pain, light sensitivity, and eye discharge resembling pusred, swollen, warm, painful joints
>>
Men can go without symptoms for quite a while, not knowing they have it & in turn spreading the virus.

It does not go away on it's own & if you suspect you or your partner/s have been infected you should book an appointment with your closest Sexual Health Clinic.

This can be done online or through your G.P.
>>
Gonorrhea of the throat must be tested using an oral swab test as it may not be picked up in the blood or urine.

Normally Gonorrhea is detected in both blood & urine, showing up in symptoms similar to a urinary tract infection but the pharynx is a resevoir for many disease & might only be detected through the oral swab exam.

Sores in the mouth, which may be painless.
Lesions similar to cold sores and fever blisters around the mouth.Red, painful throat and difficulty swallowing.Tonsillitis.
Redness with white spots resembling strep throat.
Whitish or yellow discharge.

Alright Ill bite. How the hell does this one work?
>>
gonorrhea sounds like spurdo mispronouncing a real disease
>>
>>244431
I guess it's down to the situation if if that person's infected then the activities they are in will put them at higher risk, (the way some diseases are more with drug users & homosexuals).

Also i'd guess that your body fighting off one disease is trouble enough but then you'd be weaker & therefor more prone to being infected with HIV.

Keep in mind Charlie Sheens wife was fucking him every night without protection for more than a year & wasn't infected (luckily).

He wasn't even taking meds for first few months apparently.
>>
>>244434
Basically the research & percentages show that yeah you are far more at risk of infection from HIV if you are infected with Gonorrhea.
>>
>>244432
Spelt like a retard took a shot at spelling it & they just rolled wit ut

Wouldn't ya know he gott it from the asians......

Yeah, AIDS is a lot harder to contract than politically correct to for them to admit. That's why it's mainly IV drug users and / people who take it up the ass.
>>
>>244442
Well of you're a regular Joe & you meet a swell Susie, hit it off, have a straight relationship with just each other & don't have the kind of lifestlye that involves drugs then you shouldn't have to be worried.

If however you are a degenerate..... well then, expect consequences for ones actions.
>>
>degenerates will soon be exterminated by mother nature
utterly based

>>244360
Hopefully more of these gook fuckers get it. Nature always has a way of thinning out the herd as long as we don't interfere.

HIV can't propagate in tiger blood.

Mostly nigger n asians..... ALWAYS niggers ir asians

>>244360
then use condoms then you fool.
We'll come up with a solution. There will always be a way to eliminate these bugs even if it isn't antibiotics
>>
>>244733
Can also be passed on through infected fluids (saliva, urine, blood, tears), oral sex & open mouthed kissing.
>>
>>244735
so basically it's a nuclear option plot by hardline puritans to scare people into becoming chaste? Got it
>>
>>244646
my finely-tuned antibodies will wipe out all the ab-resistant STD's from having fucked all those men in my youth while my rich, Christian husband suffers from them while I spend his money on all this awesome make-up so I can fuck his friends.

Sheen's wife wasn't getting shit. Ol' Tiger Blood was pounding Bree Olson. Why do you think she had to retire from porn all of a sudden?
>>
>>244435
Which is more a correlation than a causation thing. If you’re doing the type of shit that will get you gonnorhea, you’re doing the type of shit that will get you AIDS.
>>

>If you’re doing the type of shit that will get you gonnorhea, you’re doing the type of shit that will get you AIDS
doing gay men?

Nah there's worse. Some HPV strains (causing genital warts) don't even need fluids or mucous tissues. The can be trasnmitted by normal skin contact. So the skin around the shaft of your dick is vulnerable even with a condom. And there is no cure. HPV is for life, going through dormant and active cycles.
>>
>>244360
Meh. If they want to be whores, then be prepared to deal with the consequence. Should've thought about it before you stick all those dicks into your mouth/put your dick in that random ass.
>>
>>244360
Time to put more money into antibiotic research, this may require a government backed research program. Oh and antibiotic resistant infections are much less likely to infect people then regular non-resistant bacterial infections, so this crisis isn't as severe as you'd think.
>>
>>244988
LMFAO

>>244360
Good thing I don't go around breaking women with my dick so that my dick doesn't get sick.
>>

Aside fropm gonorrhorea, the vast majority of STDs are virii and antibiotics will do fuckall.
>>
Leading research shows that abstaining from sex reduces your risk of contracting an STD to almost zero.
>>
>>245793
so does using a condom
>>
>>245798
so does not shagging dirtys men and women

>>244360
wouldn't be surprised if there's a conspiracy by puritan types to make sex look bad
