Risk Factors of Gonorrhea
Meningitis, endocarditis, septic arthritis and skin pustules are some of the complications that can arise in a person suffering from gonorrhea. Untreated gonorrhea can result in urethritis (inflammation of urethral structure), prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland) and epididymitis in men.
PID is the most commonly occurring complication in women whose infection has not been treated. Perihepatitis, septic arthritis, septic abortion, blindness caused by conjunctivitis and infertility are the risk factors affecting women with gonorrhea.
Neonatal blindness is also common if no preventive measures are taken during childbirth. Chlamydia is also fairly common in people having gonorrhea.
