Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Gonorhea is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, where this infection can infect men or women. The infection spreads through risky sex, especially sex with patients who have been diagnosed with gonorrhea. Complaints of gonorrhea infections in women in general are almost the same as complaints of vaginal infections in general, such as:
1. leucorrhoea, greenish and rather thick
2. complaints of frequent urination or pain when urinating
3. pain during intercourse
4. lower stomach pain
6. more menstruation
The diagnosis is made by a history of contact with a gonorrhea patient, physical examination, and a definite diagnosis is obtained by supporting a vaginal swab wherein the bacteria that causes gonorrhea is found.
whereas syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by bacterial infection of Treponema pallidum, in women the initial complaint can be experienced after 2-3 weeks of contact with patients with syphilis. So, after contracting an infection or bacteria entering the body, a woman can feel complaints in the form of round wounds in the area around the vagina called the chrancre, where these wounds do not hurt, but are very easily transmitted.
In general, syphilis infections generally experience four stages of pain travel, from the primary to tertiary stages. Stage one and two are phases of disease that are easily infected, while the tertiary phase causes disturbances that pose a risk to the health of the body with all its complications. In women, the initial stage is the appearance of a painless, infectious chrancre that can disappear on its own after 3-6 weeks. Sometimes a woman is not aware of this chrancre. Then the advanced stage two complaints appear, in the form of irritation in the female, skin rash or red skin rash, swollen glands, hair loss. Furthermore, if the latent phase is experienced by patients with syphilis, then this stage does not give significant complaints, and can last for years, but the infection is still in the body to develop into a tertiary stage where this condition can cause complications in the body system, such as disruption in the brain , stroke, inflammation of the lining of the brain, blindness, personality disorders, memory problems, heart disease, dilation of blood vessels. An alarming risk if a pregnant woman is infected with syphilis, where the infection can cause abnormalities in the baby, such as bone disorders, swelling of the liver, yellow baby, eye disease.
However, the diagnosis of syphilis is confirmed by a history of contact with patients who have been diagnosed with syphilis, the results of a physical examination, and the results of investigations in the form of vaginal swabs. Definitive diagnosis is made by swab examination with found syphilis-causing bacteria.
Therefore, any complaints that you feel in the form of genital wounds, lower abdominal pain, vaginal discharge, and irregular menstruation, are common complaints that can be experienced by patients with vaginal discharge or vaginal / female infections. Other non-specific infections or fungal infections can also cause similar complaints. However, indeed, the suspicion of gonorrhea infection that you may experience can be stronger especially if the above complaints are accompanied by contact with previous gonorrhea patients. It is necessary to ensure this condition with further examination, i.e. consult again with an obstetrician or genital dermatologist for a supplementary examination to confirm the diagnosis of gonorrhea or not.
Even if the complaint is caused by a gnorrhea infection, then this infection (which has been running for a month) can be cured both with medication and care by a doctor. However, it is necessary to prevent the recurrence of infections or the prevention of other sexually transmitted infections, namely by avoiding risky sex and changing partners. Take care of the health of your reproductive organs for your health, your future and your children 's future.
For now, a number of things you can do:
1. control back to your obstetrician or dermatologist, if necessary ask for a second opinion from another specialist
2. Follow the necessary follow-up checks
3. Get enough rest
4. avoid sex
5. regular exercise
