Gonorrhoea is an infection that is triggered by a sexually transmitted bacterium that infects both males and females. Gonorrhoea most times affects the urethra, rectum or throat. In females, gonorrhoea can also cause infection in the cervix.
According to the publication of VeryWellHealth, in men, infertility is less likely to be triggered by gonorrhoea. However, if gonorrhoea is left not treated, it can infect the male bollock or prostate gland, thereby lessening fertility.
If gonorrhoea is left not treated in males, it can lead to epididymitis, which is a gonorrhoea condition. Epididymitis leads to inflammation of a coiled tube positioned at the back of the bollock. This tube preserves and transports male gamete.
Epididymitis can also lead to inflammation to happen in a bollock. This is referred to as epididymo-orchitis. Epididymitis can be treated with the aid of antibiotics. If left not treated or chronic cases can lead to infertility.
