TREATING CHLAMYDIA AND GONORRHEA

 

Sexually transmitted disease usually scares off a lot of people. However, it is important that people, especially those who are infected, understand what it is they are infected with and to proactively seek cure and treatment.

Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are the two most known sexually transmitted diseases today. Gonorrhea is caused by the bacteria Neisseria Gonorrhoeae while Chlamydia by the bacteria Chlamydia Trachomatis. The two have very similar symptoms, thus, it is imperative that men and women who contracted gonorrhea also undergo treatment for Chlamydia as well.

Patients with gonorrhea are usually prescribed to take antibiotics. While undergoing treatment, it is important to temporarily avoid sexual intercourse to prevent the bacteria from spreading. The bacteria infect men and women alike. It is also not constrained to the genital area, namely the vagina and the penis, but it can also be found in the throat as a result of oral sex and the rectum due to anal sex. Moreover, when seeking treatment for gonorrhea and Chlamydia, make sure that your sex partner also gets himself treated.


Like in any other sickness, it is most important to take all the medications for gonorrhea religiously. However, although the medication will cure the person of the infection, it cannot repair any permanent damage brought about by the disease. The people who have previously been afflicted with gonorrhea become vulnerable to the disease again if they engage in sexual intercourse with people who are infected. They do not become immune to the disease simply by taking medications. If you think your condition is not improving even after receiving treatment, immediately return to a doctor for your case to be reevaluated.

Chlamydia can also be easily treated and cured by taking in antibiotics as prescribed by the physician. The most commonly used treatments for patients infected with Chlamydia include a single dosage of Azithromycin or a 7-day intake of doxycycline taken twice daily. The same treatment is given to HIV-positive persons with chlamydia as those who are diagnosed HIV- negative.

As you can see, curing gonorrhea and Chlamydia isn’t as scary as you thought it would be. Early prevention would save you from a lot of problems in the future. You sure don’t want to compromise your capability to bear children in the future, do you? When you suspect yourself having any of the two diseases, do not hesitate to drop by your ob-gyn’s office so that you could easily find the quickest and easiest solution to your problem. Seek Chlamydia and gonorrhea treatment now and the sooner you would be free from your worries!
