Antibiotics: You would need to see your doctor to have a culture done. There is increasing resistance to the typically used antibiotics, so be sure you are treated with the appropriate regimen. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6131a3.htm?s_cid=mm6131a3_w.

No such thing.: The only thing you can do at home is avoid having sex and transmitting the disease. Need antibiotics from doc and screening for the other unseen things that get transmitted along with gonorrhea. See doc now as this can get pretty painful.

Gonorrhea: Treatment of Gonorrhea is rather simple and straightforward. However, the optimal treatment is a one time dose of an intramuscular antibiotic that requires a prescription and administration by a healthcare provider. Both you and your partner should be treated, and best to be tested for other STDS as well. I suggest seeing your physician or many local health departments have STD clinics.

Gonorrhea: Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted bacterial infection, easy to treat. It can cause urogenital infections in both men and women, including cervicitis and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, which can lead to fertility problems. It can also cause throat infection, anal infection, eye infections, and, if it gets into the bloodstream, may, rarely, involve the liver, heart. brain, and joints.

A 21-year-old male asked:

How long can someone have gonorrhea and not show symptoms?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Killian

Misinformed?: Forever? Once infected they will have it and be contagious until treated. One does not usually get symptoms in their throat, anus, or vagina. Many times the symptoms are so minor in the vagina that they are missed. That is why there should be routine testing in all sexually active adults.
