Gonorrhea is curable and the infection is treated with antibiotics. The problem is that there are now strains of gonorrhea that are becoming resistant to antibiotics. Theses antimicrobial resistant strains of gonorrhea are typically found in Asia. However, there have been cases reported in Hawaii and the West Coast of the United States. It is important to tell your doctor if you suspect that you contracted gonorrhea in these areas to ensure proper treatment.
Here are some important things to remember when receiving treatment for gonorrhea:
- It is very important to finish ALL of the doctor prescribed medicine even if the symptoms go away.
- All partners should be examined and treated.
- Sexual contact should be avoided until the patient and all partner(s) have been treated and cured.
- It is possible to contract gonorrhea again if you have sex with an infected person.
- If you continue to exhibit symptoms after treatment, see your doctor.
Often times people infected with gonorrhea are also infected with Chlamydia, as a result doctors it is common for doctors to prescribe medicines to treat both STIs at the same time.
