Gonococcus infection in women

23 Oct 2017Registered users

It seems to have been established beyond doubt that about 70 per cent of the inflammatory affections met with in married women are due to infection by the gonococcus. The reason why the disease is so common in women, who do not, in many instances, know what they are suffering from, is because they have been infected immediately after marriage by their husbands who are suffering from the effects of the disease, and who have imagined themselves cured and ready for marriage.
