Drug Reistant Gonorrhea Is Cause For Alarm In the USA: So Get Tested!

The future of curing infection is in danger according to the newest report in September 2013 from the CDC. describes an infectious disease landscape in which 2 million people in the United States are sickened annually with antibiotic-resistant infections. The report estimates that at least 23,000 people a year die from antibiotic-resistant infections. For gynos are growing numbers of cases of  drug-resistant gonorrhea,  and a growing percentage of the organisms that cause gonorrhea are resistant to even the last line of medications currently available. Another serious threat is from methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and over 80,000 serious MRSA infections each year in the United States. Breast MRSA and genital area MRSA infections are diagnosed relatively commonly in gyno offices. A critical component of controlling these infections is to watch the amount of antibiotic use you consume. About half of all antibiotics given are probably unnecessary. Testing for serious infections, like gonorrhea, still has to be done, an we hope to develop even better tests in the future. If you have vaginal infection symptoms, if you have been in contact with a new partner, if you have had sex with a partner who has had gonorrhea, please contact your gyno for appropriate testing.
