What are the complications of gonorrhea?
Left untreated, complications of gonorrhea can include joint infections, increased risk of HIV infection, pelvic inflammatory disease in women and inflammation of the epididymis in men. Pregnant women with gonorrhea can also pass the infection to their baby during childbirth, which can result in infections of a baby's eyes or joints.
