#16 – Gonorrhea
We couldn’t help it but mention another sexually transmitted disease on our list after featuring Syphilis. So, Gonorrhea is a disease that is pretty similar to Syphilis. Gonorrhea, just like any other STD, can easily be prevented with the use of condoms and common sense. The disease hits both reckless men and women.
If left untreated, Gonorrhea can be painful and lead to various infections of the reproductive organs and to throat infections. A pregnant woman with Gonorrhea can easily transmit the disease to her child which can have some serious consequences. Gonorrhea can also lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease which can cause infertility.
