Often painful: Gonorrhea in women may be very painful (pelvic inflammatory disease can be caused by gonorrhea). Men usually have urethral (penile) pain but gonorrhea may extend into deeper (and more painful) structures. In both sexes, gonorrhea can cause more remote and painful infections involving the liver and joints among other sites. ...Read more
No: Early recognition and proper rx of this problem with prescription meds solves many problems.Although the gc symptoms may be so noticable that few can overlook them, there are often more than one std present at a time & all need to be recognized & eliminated.This reduces spread and the life altering complications(ie infertility) involved.Since rx for one std may not eliminate all, get evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Be careful please: 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. ...Read more

No risk, no worry: Probably only a few minutes, i.e. when the infected fluid dries. But it doesn't matter, really. Gonorrhea and other STDs are never caught from a contaminated environment. There is no risk from sharing toilets, towels, clothing, or touching contaminated surfaces. Use common sense hygiene but otherwise don't worry about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A few things: Gonorrhea can sometimes be resistant to standard antibiotics. It is also possible to get reinfected through sex with another infected person. Stop having any form of sex until gonorrhea is completely treated. See an infectious disease doctor for a culture to find sensitivities and resistances of the gonorrhea and then take complete round antibiotics ...Read more
No - different area: Gonorrhea in men usually causes a urethritis - which is an infection of the urethra, which is 'inside' the penis - not on the outside. If you are worried about an external dermatitis, it must be something else other than gonorrhea. It could be 'fungus' since I notice you've got 'jock itch' listed above. I suggest you see an ID doc- those doctors specialize in this kind of thing. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can veetid cure these uti, gonorrhea, clap? Had pain in testicles after anal sex. Took 9 pills symptoms cleared up. I ran out of meds & symptom return
STD: Perhaps it can help with some forms of uti. But, it will not treat gonorrhea or chlamydia. I am not sure where you got information that would tell you that pain in the testicles was an infection or an std. Nothing that is contagious would show up that quickly after a sexual encounter. Perhaps you can re-ask the question and include all of your symptoms. ...Read more

Trichomonas isn't a likely cause of abdominal pain, but still could be checked by a DNA test (better than the older microscope test). Return to doctor or clinic ASAP. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was diagnosed with gonorrhea a week ago. I got the shot to cure it, but I was wondering will the vaccine cure infection in varius parts in the body.?

Both the shot and oral treatment are required for reliable cure. They will work in all parts of the body. (The shot was not a vaccine.)
