Gonorrhea is caused by a bacterium called Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

A person can get infected with gonorrhea by having any kind of sexual contact with an infected person. It can also be spread from an untreated mother to her baby during childbirth.

► Those with multiple sexual partners.

► If one of the partner has a past history of any sexually transmitted infection.

► People whose indulge in unsafe sex and do not use a condom during sex.

► Those who indulge in alcohol or use illegal substances.
