Gonorrhea Treatment

Treatment and Cure

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease that can be treated. The disease can be treated with antibiotics prescribed by a doctor. Some of the antibiotics used to treat gonorrhea are ofloxacin and cetriaxone.

Currently, research is being conducted for the use of a vaginal ointment to prevent gonorrhea infection. However, it may take many years before this new medication is proven effective. The best way to fight gonorrhea infection is through prevention through abstinence. If you do decide to be sexually active, make sure to practice safe sex always.

Gonorrhea should be treated as soon as diagnosed because it can cause severe consequences. For example, being infected with gonorrhea increases a person's chances of getting HIV.
