    Is gonorrhea a common infection?

    Gonococcal infections: Trends in Québec

    • Gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported bacterial STI in Canada.
    • Between 2010 and 2014, the number of reported cases doubled. This increase is largely due to better detection of the disease at extragenital sites (e.g. pharynx and rectum).

    Who is most affected?

    • In 2014, 72% of reported cases were in men. The ratio of men to women is 2.6 to 1. In young people, the ratio of male to female is 1.3 to 1.
    • Between 2009 and 2013, there was an increase of more than 50% in reported cases among men aged 25 to 39 years.
    • Between 2010 and 2014, there was an increase in the incidence of reported cases among women in almost all age groups. The increase was 17% for women aged 15-19, 35% for women aged 20-24, and 54% for women aged 25-29.
    • In men, 47% of cases of gonococcal infections are only rectal or pharyngeal infections.
