What is gonorrhea?
Also called “drip” or “the clap,” gonorrhea is an incredibly prevalent STI among sexually active individuals. According to CDC estimates, approximately 1.14 million new gonococcal infections occur in the U.S. each year.
Caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacterium, gonorrhea may be transmitted through oral, vaginal, or anal sex with an infected partner. It’s a highly contagious infection, easily spread from one person to another.
