STILL ON GONORRHEA
💫Do know that the involvement of the prostate, epididymis, testicles, fallopian tubes and the ovaries can lead to infertility because these organs or the reproductive system as a whole is no longer in order😕.
💫Infection of the eye can occur most commonly in newborns who are exposed to infected secretions in the birth canal.
💫When the baby is born, there is itching and if left untreated can damage the cornea of the eyes which would ultimately lead to blindness.
💫It is because of this reason that silver nitrate, erythromycin, or tetracycline is added to the eyes of newborns to prevent or control infection by Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
💫Also, because the disease does not usually present symptoms in women, it is adviced that all pregnant women be tested before they give birth.
💫Throat infection with the bacterium is always possible when there is oral sex and the bacterium gains entry to the mouth and from there to the throat🤷♂️.
