Learn How to Get Rid of Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea, a common infectious disease, is a sexually transmitted disease that can cause infertility and can spread through the blood stream into the joints, causing inflammation and swelling, or gonococcal arthritis.

If gonorrhoea is left untreated for a long time, could cause pelvic inflammatory disease or worse yet; Epididymitis. One medical journal states that there are approximately four million new cases of gonorrhea annually in the United States alone.

Gonorrhea is caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae. A recent medical report has it that Neisseria gonorrhoeae is becoming resistant to whatever drug it encounters. Since this disease is spread by sexual contact, the infection is thus transmitted from person to person through oral, vaginal, or even anal sex. But be that as it may, gonorrhea cannot be spread by toilets or bathrooms.

Below are some of the symptoms of gonorrhea:

Gonorrhea In Men:

  1. Painful Urination (Telltale Symptom)
  2. Drops of pus from the penis
  3. Painful swelling of the testicles
  4. Painful swelling in one or both knees, ankles or wrist.
  5. Rash or sores all over the body
  6. Sterility (If left untreated for a long time)

In Women:

  1. Slight vaginal discharge
  2. Blindness of the unborn baby if pregenant.
  3. Pain in the lower belly
  4. Sterility (If left untreated for a long time)
  5. Urinary problems

Note: Most women are asymptomatic to gonorrhea.
I have listed two ways of managing and preventing gonorrhea.

TIP #1: Help Yourself:

The best way to reduce contacting gonorrhea or any other sexually transmitted disease is to avoid sexual intercourse. If you must have sexual intercourse, then stick to a mutual uninfected partner or use condom if you have multiple sexual partners.

TIP #2: Antibiotic

Neisseria gonorrhoeae the bacterium that causes gonorhea is increasingly becoming resistant to many antiobiotics. The first was penicilling and now tetracycline.
Nevertheless a few antibiotics will help suppress the disease. I have listed two of those.
Note: Seek local advice about which medicines are effective in your area.

  • Co-trimoxazole

Co-trimoxazole can be used in treating gonorrhea.

1. Using tablets with 400mg.
2. Sulfamethoxazole and 80mg of trimethropim.

Dosage: Consult a professional health worker in your area.

  • Kanamycin

Kanamycin is very effective in suppressing gonorrhea.

Take one injection of 2 grams of kanamycin

  • Streptomycin

Although this medicine is commonly used in treating tuberculosis, it could also be used in managing gonorrhea when no other antibiotics are available.

Take one injection of 2 grams of streptomycin.

Note: Only use streptomycin for gonorrhea that is resistant penicillin when no other medicines are available. Too much use of streptomycin for diseases other than tuberculosis reduces its usefulness for that illness.
