Length of Rx

It depends on the length of the antibiotic Rx that is given and whether it is completed properly. Most Rx's take one to two weeks of Rx.

How long after treatment does it take to heal from chlamydia or gonorrhea and will it be safe to have sex?

Two weeks

Chlamydia_infections
Two weeks after both partners have been treated intercourse is then safe. I always recommend repeating the test after two weeks to confirm that the infection has resolved before having intercourse again

What's the best treatment to get rid of neisseria gonorrhea infection?

Be careful please

Tetracycline
As of 2010 injectable ceftriaxone appears to be one of the few effective antibiotics. Because of increasing rates of antibiotic resistance local susceptibility patterns need to be taken into account when deciding on treatment. Many antibiotics that were once effective including penicillin, tetracycline and fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended because of high rates of resistance. Thanks

I have both chlamydia and gonorrhea I got treatment already how long before its 100 percent cured? also when can I have sex again?

1 wk after treatment

Sexual_intercourse
One week after you and your partner both complete treatment, you can resume sex. You should be cured, assuming you both took your medication exactly as prescribed. If there is any doubt, you can test to confirm you were cured 3 weeks after treatment. Please use condoms going forward, stay mutually monogamous and get full STD testing. Check out SexualHealth.com for educational and testing info.

Is there any way I can prevent bruising from Juvederm injections? Bruises seem to take forever to heal on me, so I'd like to try to avoid them when I get my Juvederm treatment. Do you have any advice for how to do that? .

Bruising

Juvederm
Icing the treated areas following juvederm treatment and stopping all blood thinners such as aspirin prior to treatment per your doctors permission will help reduce bruising

Best antibotic treatment for gonorrhea?

Cephalosporins

Gonorrhea is becoming more resistant to antibiotics that have previously been used for treatment. The CDC came out with new guidelines which recommend oral cefixime and the injectable antibiotic ceftriaxone.
