I've been retreated for gonorrhea on July 20th since the first treatment didn't work. I got my period on July 24th and finished on July 27.i started?

The question?: You didn't actually ask a question. Most often the reason that treatment for gonorrhea fails is that everyone who needed treatment didn't get treated and so you got re-infected. However, there has been increasing resistance of gonorrhea to antibiotics and testing for sensitivity may be needed to be sure which antibiotic is best to treat you. Hope this answers your question. ...Read more

Orgasm: Orgasm both helps relieve the pain of menstrual cramps, but can also induce cramping (which lasts a short time). Clitoral stimulation may be inducing cramps in you if it is close to your period, but usually the effect is to make the cramps less painful. I would recommend taking Ibuprofen 600 mg about an hour before you plan to be intimate to help lessen cramping, unless you have been told by a doctor not to take Ibuprofen (issues with easy bleeding/bruising, gastric ulcer).

7 to 21 days: Most of us have already had varicella (chicken pox) or been immunized, so we are immune. "Last day or first" is not an issue.
