Hi, I’m Dr. Savage. You’re wondering how to
treat gonorrhea. Gonorrhea, first of all, it’s an STD, it’s a bacteria. It actually
is a curable condition. It’s actually cured through certain different antibiotics that
should be appropriately chosen by your physician, either at a health care clinic or your primary
care physician. Whoever it may be, the doctor will write for that, their appropriate antibiotic.
Often it will be in the form of a pill, but you may also receive either an intravenous
or an intramuscular shot of antibiotics as well. If your physician prescribes more than
one antibiotic, each one of those medicines that’s prescribed should be taken exactly
as directed. If it’s an antibiotic, take it until it’s gone as directed by your physician.
And with that treatment also, on thing to mention is informing your partner and having
the other partner treated and at the same time, not, not engaging in sexual activity
during and a period of time afterwards the treatment. So at that point you’ll actually
be cured of gonorrhea. I’m confident this has been informative. I’m Dr. Savage, here’s
to your health.
