I have got the shot for gonorrhea but have a little discharge & discomfort?

A 'shot" of pain?: Your antibiotic shot is NOT a immediate "cure" for a serious infection such as gonorrhea. It will take some time for the medication to work and it Is very important that you return to the MD to be re-examined and have a follow up GC culture to be certain the infection is gone. There will be some "discomfort and discharge" until that return appointment. ...Read more

I got diagnosed e gonorrhea and I was given a shot! The symptoms went away does that mean its gone n that's all it took?

I got diagnosed e gonorrhea and I was given a shot! The symptoms went away does that mean its gone n that's all it took?

Shot plus pills: The current recommendation for treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhea is a shot plus some pills. The pills can either be a single dose taken once or a longer 7 day pill treatment. If you were only given a shot, that might not be adequate treatment. It's a good idea to be retested "a test of cure", one week after the treatment to be sure it worked. Be sure sex partners have been treated correctly too. ...Read more

Hello, Last October I was diagnosed with gonorrhea and given a shot along with doxycycline. I took the antibiotics but missed three doses during the?

Probably OK, but...: In addition to the shot of ceftriaxone, doxycycline was given both to increase reliability against gonorrhea and to treat for possible chlamydia, which is often present at the same time. Missing a few doses of doxy probably didn't harm anything. However, you should have been retested after 3-6 months. If that wasn't done, you should be tested now for both gonorrhea and chlamydia. Good luck! ...Read more

I got treated for gonorrhea with the shot, a week later I still had a lot of discharge so they gave me azithromycin, 2-3 days later it burns after pro

Go back: The current recommended standards for treatment would include two agents to start with (a cephalosporin and azithro or another drug to treat non-gonococcal urethritis). Since antibacterial resistance has become a major issue you would be best to be seen by a doctor expert in the area of STDs. Probably need culture and sensitivity. ...Read more

Yellow discharge and a little itching after 2 days of gonorrhea medication I got a shot and 2 azithromycin pills please help?

Probably OK: It can take a week for gonorrhea symptoms to clear, especially if you also have chlamydia, present in almost half of people with gonorrhea. Your treatment (ceftriaxone and azithromycin) will cure both. But if these symptoms started only after treatment, it could be yeast triggered by the antibiotics. Return to the doctor or clinic if symptoms get worse, or if still there a week after treatment. ...Read more
