Oral sex spreading unstoppable bacteria 07/09/2017

By James Gallagher Health and science reporter, BBC News website
Oral sex is producing dangerous gonorrhea and a decline in condom use is helping it to spread, the World Health Organization has said.

It warns that if someone contracts gonorrhea, it is now much harder to treat, and in some cases impossible.

The sexually transmitted infection is rapidly developing resistance to antibiotics.

About 78 million people pick up the STI each year and it can cause infertility.

Dr Wi said antibiotics could lead to bacteria in the back of the throat, including relatives of gonorrhea, developing resistance.
