Gonorrhea is a very old sexually transmitted disease which dates back to 16th century. It is caused by the organism Neisseria gonorrhea. It has been the most common sexually transmitted disease with men complaining of burning micturation and women complaining of vaginal discharge. At one time, gonorrhea was so prevalent that in 1161, the British parliament passed a law to treat the people suffering from gonorrhea and prostitutes transmitting the infection. As the disease was sexually transmitted, it was believed to be spread by prostitutes. The Government of America even warned its service men not to come in contact with prostitutes during the war. Gonorrhea primarily affected males between 20 to 24 years of age for males and females between 16 to 19 years of age. After the identification of gonorrhea as the cause of major communicable disease in the 1970s, CDC was set up following which there was a decline in the rate of gonorrhea since 1999.
