Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can infect both men and women. It can cause infections in the genitals, rectum, and throat. It is a very common infection, especially among young people ages 15-24 years. Gonorrhea is caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a bacterium that can grow and multiply easily in mucus membranes of the body.Gonorrhea bacteria can grow in the warm, moist areas of the reproductive tract, including the cervix (opening to the womb), uterus (womb), and fallopian tubes (egg canals) in women, and in the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside the body) in women and men. The bacteria can also grow in the mouth, throat, and anus. Gonorrhea symptoms in women: Greenish yellow or whitish discharge from the vagina, Lower abdominal or pelvic pain, Burning when urinating, Conjunctivitis (red, itchy eyes),Bleeding between periods, Spotting after intercourse, Swelling of the vulva (vulvitis),Burning in the throat (due to oral sex),Swollen glands in the throat (due to oral sex).In some women, symptoms are so mild that they escape unnoticed. Many women with gonorrhea discharge think they have a yeast infection and self-treat with over-the-counter yeast infection drug. Because vaginal discharge can be a sign of a number of different problems, it is best to always seek the advice of a doctor to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.

Scope and Importance
Gonorrhea symptoms in men: Greenish yellow or whitish discharge from the penis, Burning when urinating ,Burning in the throat (due to oral sex),Painful or swollen testicles, Swollen glands in the throat (due to oral sex).In men, symptoms usually appear two to 14 days after infection. Gonorrhea treatment in adults:Adults with gonorrhea are treated with antibiotics. Due to emerging strains of drug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that uncomplicated gonorrhea be treated only with the antibiotic ceftriaxone (Rocephin) given as an injection in combination with either azithromycin (Zithromax, Zmax) or doxycycline (Monodox, Oracea,Vibramycin) two antibiotics that are taken orally.Some research indicates that oral gemifloxacin (Factive) or injectable gentamicin, combined with oral azithromycin, is highly successful in treating gonorrhea. This treatment may be helpful in treating people who are allergic to cephalosporin antibiotics, such as ceftriaxone. Gonorrhea treatment for partners:Your partner also should undergo testing and treatment for gonorrhea, even if he or she has no signs or symptoms. Your partner receives the same treatment you do. Even if you've been treated for gonorrhea, you can be reinfected if your partner isn't treated. Gonorrhea treatment for babies: Babies born to mothers with gonorrhea receive a medication in their eyes soon after birth to prevent infection. If an eye infection develops, babies can be treated with antibiotics.5 conferences were organized on Gonorrhea in 2011 it has been increased to 7 in 2012 and 8 in 2013 and again it has been increased to 10 conferences in the year 2014.
Global gonorrhea diagnostic market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period owing to the growing prevalence of the disease worldwide and unmet need in the faster diagnosis tools. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prevalence rate of gonorrhea was around 106 per million per year in past few years. According to the official data presented by CDC, 333,004 cases of gonorrhea were registered in the U.S. in 2013. It is estimated by CDC that more than 820000 people in U.S. get gonococcal infections each year, yet less than half get reported. In the UK around 28000 cases are reported each year.
