None are effective: There are no effective treatments for gonorrhea except for antibiotics.

Until the doctor's appointment, the person should avoid sexual contact with others, so not to spread the gonorrhea.

NO: Home remedies have no place killing off this disease. Seek simple but effective treatment with old fashion penicillin and you can be cured quickly. Comfort use of complimentary meds is fine, but get the effective stuff first.
