Chlamydia and gonorrhoea are the two most common sexually transmitted diseases. Both of these diseases are caused by bacteria and can be transmitted through vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse with an infected partner.
The two different bacterial pathogens infect the urethra, anus, or throat through sexual contact. Once inside these organs, they can attach to the host tissue and cause an inflammatory response.
People with chlamydia experience their first symptoms within a few weeks of contracting the infection. With gonorrhoea, there's no surety of when the symptoms will occur. Often, there are no symptoms at all.
These sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are common in both women and men. However, more cases in women are reported. The infection rates are highest amongst women within the age groups of 15 to 24.
Healthcare professionals recommend that all sexually active women and men get themselves tested regularly every year to reduce the risk factors. Having sexual activities with multiple people without contraception can result in the transmission of these diseases.
