I went to a pharmacy to get treated of gonorrhea and the pharmacist directed me to go for herbal treatment rather. that thr is no good drugs for it?
Gonorrhea Treatment: In the summer of 2012, the CDC updated the guidelines again - recommending that all gonorrhea cases be treated with injectable, rather than oral, antibiotics.
