Treatment of Gonnorhea

Adults with gonorrhea are treated with antibiotics. Uncomplicated gonorrhea should be treated with antibiotics because of emerging drug-resistant strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

Antibiotic resistance is making gonorrhea increasingly difficult to treat. Symptoms should be observed by a doctor if they have not improved after a few days. If the treatment is working, further testing can be conducted.

Amoxicilin is a known antibiotic that treats symptoms of gonorrhea. Avoid having sexual contact in any form of sexual practice while on treatment. You can buy Amoxicillin from any pharmacy, as it is an easily available drug. You can also order Amoxicillin online.

Preventions of Gonorrhea

  • Avoid casual sex and multiple sexual partners
  • Be in a healthy and long-term monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner who has been tested
  • Practice safer sex by using condoms correctly and regularly.
  • If you have been diagnosed with or treated for gonorrhea, inform your partner. If you and your partner have been diagnosed with gonorrhea, do not engage in sexual activity until your treatment is complete.
