Doctors are concerned that super-gonorrhea has widely spread throughout England and especially among the gay men.
Public Health England has acknowledged that the measures put in place to tackle the matter.
Doctors are afraid that sexually transmitted infection that leads to infertility may become untreatable.
West Midlands, southern England and London have recorded super-gonorrhea cases.
So far only 34 cases have been officially confirmed in the laboratory but this could only be a slight exposure to an infection that is symptomless.
Infections spread faster
The outbreak used to be common in straight couples but is now being seen in the gay men too.
“We’ve been worried it would spread to men who have sex with men,” Peter Greenhouse, a consultant in sexual health based in Bristol, told BBC News.
“The problem is [they] tend to spread infections a lot faster simply as they change partners more quickly.”
There is a possibility that the gonorrhea is in their throats.
The bacterium that is responsible for causing gonorrhea is known to attack our antibiotics.
There are two drugs that are used jointly – azithromycin and ceftriaxone.
But the virus has now resisted the azithromycin. Doctors are afraid that it will take a little time before ceftriaxone also fails.
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the bacterium that causes the disease.
Unprotected oral, anal and vaginal sex is the main causes of the infection.
Close to 1 in 10 heterosexual men and over three-quarters of women and gay men have symptoms that are hard to recognize.
Some of the symptoms are yellow discharge or a thick green one. Pain while urinating and bleeding between periods are some of the other symptoms.
If untreated, one may become infertile. One may also end up with pelvic inflammatory disease which can be passed to the child during pregnancy.
