Sexually transmitted disease is also known as veneral disease which usually spreads infections by sexual activity, especially vaginal intercourse and anal sex. Certain bacterial infections include Chlamydia, gonorrhoea, and syphilis. It can usually pass from pregnant women to infants before or after birth. Many STDs can easily be transmitted through the mucous membrane of penis, vulva and urinary tract. It is suggested that safer sex such as use of condoms is the reliable way of decreasing the risk of sexually transmitted disease. It can even be transmitted by body fluids, blood transfusions. Medical workers, hemophiliacs and drug users are at higher risk of this disease. Sometimes it is left to be asymptomatic and in women it can cause the serious pelvic inflammatory disease.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae is also known as Gonococcus. It is a gram negative dipplococci bacteria and is caused by sexually transmitted genitourinary infection gonorrhea and other form of gonoccocal disease including septic arthritis and gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum. It is oxidase-positive and aerobic, which survives phagocytosis and grows inside neutrophils. Gonorrhea is most commonly spread through vaginal, oral and anal sex, babies can also be infected during childbirth. In males it usually affects the urethra, rectuma and throat region whereas in females it affects the cervix which marks the dividing line between the lower reproductive tract and upper tract. The cervical infection can be symptomatic and asymptomatic but without treatment it can spread and ascend to upper tract includes fallopian tube and endometrium which further leads to dead gonococcal transmission , and in fallopian tube it leads to Salpingitis risk of developing ectopic pregnancy. Reinfection is possible if its ability to evade the immune system by varying the surface proteins and usually resembles the shape of coffee beans, is usually isolated on Thayer martin agar in the atmosphere which is enriched with carbon dioxide.


It affects both men and women with equal potency.It only spreads while having unprotected sex, as the infection can not be spread through normal physical contact as the bacteria cannot survive outside the body for long period of time.The bacteria usually grows in the reproductive tract and the throat.It is preventable.The symptoms are not seen right after acquiring the infection.This infection can be treated with antibiotics.If the infection is left untreated it can lead to infertility and spread to the bloodstream.The infection can be cured.Pregnant women should be more cautious about this infection. One must slow down the sexual activites after treatment.Testing for gonorrhea is simple and painless.


N. gonorrhoeae infect the columnar epithelium , because stratified squamous epithelium is resistant to invasion. Mucosal invasion by gonococci bacteria results in an inflammatory response which produces a purulent exudate which consists of serum and desquamated epithelium. The endotoxin exhibits the cytotoxicity causing sloughing of the epithelial cells, when endotoxins activate it leads to acute inflammatory response. It ascends to urogenital tract and pelvic inflammatory disease in post-pubertal females. It further invades lymphatics and blood vessels which causes inguinal lymphadenopathy and disseminated gonococcal infections. When the immune system gets involved it causes local and systemic infections. The gonococcus bacteria first attach to host cells and adhere to microvilli by hair-like protein (pilli) and show antigenic variation that aids in escape from the immune system for different cell receptors.
