Immediate: There is no real time limit to the effects of gonorrhea. A cervical infection of any type can obstruct the cervix. Chronic infection causes prolonged inflammation that can prevent pregnancy. After the acute phase of illness, scar tissue is constantly remodeled. The healing process can block the fallopian tubes years into future. Any evidence of cervical infection should be treated immediately.
