LONDON (Reuters) The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea risks becoming a drug-resistant "superbug" if doctors do not devise new ways of treating it, a leading sexual health expert said.
Catherine Ison, a specialist on gonorrhea from Britain's Health Protection Agency said a World Health Organization (WHO) meeting in Manila next week would be vital to efforts to try to stop the bug repeatedly adapting to and overcoming drugs.
"This is a very clever bacteria. If this problem isn't addressed, there is a real possibility that gonorrhea will become a very difficult infection to treat," she said in a telephone interview.
Gonorrhea is a common bacterial sexually-transmitted infection and if left untreated can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility in women.
Globally, the WHO estimates that there are at least 340 million new cases of curable sexually transmitted infections -- including syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis -- every year among people aged 15 to 49.

Hot to rot ping.
Now I know why mom always used to say “wait until your married”.
Yep, let’s all keep our pants up.
The talk about AIDS and VD in general is definitely a situation in which “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
and in this country syphillis is making a comeback
now remember to tell all those 12 year old girls to be sluts so Planned Parenthood can do more abortions.
I’ve been with the same chick for 14 years now and very content (never thought I’d say that)
we only had to worry about herpes in my day...(70s)
be discreet boys and girls
how did we ever let so many of our womenfolk get so skanked up?
“how did we ever let so many of our womenfolk get so skanked up?”
They don’t have enough men to choose from to help show them the advantage of being women, for one thing...they have (men and women) become 25 year old “students” who live off their parents.
Have you seen some of the men?
Glad I’m married I only have the Mr to worry about...
Now if I got something, I would go muzzie on his ‘little friend’...*splat*! infidel! heh heh
Owwa ak jack!
Here’s an idea: celebacy before marriage and monogamy after. That should prevent infection.
Assuming your partner does the same, and neither brings something nasty into the relationship from earlier history.
Unfortunately, a person can be completely monogamous and still pick something up.
Works every time.
The latest WHO scare ... WHO cares what WHO thinks? No credibility anymore.
Ok, Thats it. No more sex for me. Well...., not if I ever go back to England.
What about rape? As if it isn’t bad enough that children, women, and men are raped but now there’s things like HIV and superbugs to add to the damage.
Is this the same thing as gonghorrea? Or are they two different things but just kinda close? :)
Exactly. And choose a spouse who has not slept around. Perhaps one day, only the socially conservative will be left standing....
men today are either faggy or wiggery
you can’t deny young girls are much much more skanky than in my day...early 70s
they are way too sexualized too early
