Recent news reports that the CDC is alarmed with the rise of gonorrhea cases that are resistant to common antibiotics. While this is a cause for much concern, the lifestyle of many citizens makes these findings terrifying. There is so much information available to everyone in the nation that many people do not have an excuse for contracting an STD such as gonorrhea. Granted, there are cruel individuals in our society who are not concerned about their well being or that of others and contribute to the spread of STDs. This is an unfortunate factor that more citizens should take into consideration when attempting to prevent becoming infected with and spreading an STD like gonorrhea.
Many citizens are aware of the severity of STDs and major cases of AIDS and HIV. Still, they continue to practice careless behavior when it comes to taking precautions to eliminate the risk of a gonorrhea infection. The STD itself has always been an alarming reality that many more adults should be concerned about. The mere fact that gonorrhea has become drug resistant should be enough information to make citizens change their sexual practices. It is believed that 700,000 Americans become infected with gonorrhea every year.
If this number is accurate, tons of citizens are going to be in for a rude awakening with regard to treatments for the STD. Gonorrhea is not just spreading, but the most common STD behind Chlamydia. This indicates that gonorrhea has become the norm among citizens and should be taken under control. Since gonorrhea is now resistant to drugs, doctors are facing an inability to treat the disease. Therefore, this means more death and unhealthy people until citizens make important changes to their lifestyle.
Contrary to what many citizens may believe or pretend, gonorrhea is not a joke. It is a disgusting sexually transmitted disease that everyone should take necessary precautions to prevent getting infected. There is some level of sympathy for those who receive news from their doctors that they have an STD such as gonorrhea. This kind of news can cause people to get angry or depressed. However, there is not much to be said for those who have not taken the steps to prevent catching gonorrhea or any other STD.
Mistakes to happen and unfortunately, everyone may not know the complete history about who they are sleeping with. That is a separate area to tackle on another day. The reality is that no one can get upset or angry about getting AIDS, HIV, gonorrhea or any other STD if they did not take prior steps to prevent themselves from being infected. For those who have become infected with AIDS or HIV through medical procedures such as blood transfusions and other risky incidents, this article for the most part does not apply. However, if you became infected with an STD such as gonorrhea, take a step back and first examine your sexual behavior up until that point before you start looking for sympathy and understanding.
