    Gonorrhea and newborns

    When gonorrhea is transmitted to the newborn, it causes conjunctivitis, an eye infection.

    Until 2015, all babies born in Quebec were required to receive antibiotic drops in the eyes at birth as a preventive measure against neonatal conjunctivitis.

    The decline in this infection in North America led the Quebec Ministry of Health to repeal the section of the law that ordered doctors to administer this drug to newborns.

    Instead of this practice, the Ministry of Health recommends systematic screening for gonorrhea (and other STBBIs) in all pregnant women.

    These screening tests may be repeated as required, depending on the sexual activity of the pregnant woman or her partner(s).
