Gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted infection that is easily treated providing that men seek good prescription medication immediately.
Occasionally symptomless, gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that is caused by bacteria in vaginal fluids and the penis. It mainly affects the genitals and rectum, but in some instances can even affect the eyes and throat. If the illness is left untreated, it can spread through the body and cause further complications in the male reproductive organs.
Since Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection, it can be treated with an effective antibiotic treatment. Usually, a doctor would prescribe Cefixime, which can be taken as a single, powerful tablet and is suitable for uncomplicated gonorrhoea.
The gonorrhoea infection is easily transmitted during unprotected sexual activity, including use of unclean sex toys. As with all STIs, the best advice for avoiding gonorrhoea is the regular use of barrier contraception such as condoms.
Whilst around one in ten men will not experience any gonorrhoea symptoms at all, the majority of sufferers will encounter symptoms within two weeks of becoming infected. In some cases, the symptoms may not appear until many months later, by which point the infection has had time to spread.
Symptoms of gonorrhoea include:
Gonorrhoea infections of the rectum may present symptoms of pain, itching and sometimes discharge. Less common infections in the eyes can produce swollen, painful, sore and irritated eyes, whilst infections of the throat rarely result in any symptoms.
If left untreated, gonorrhoea can lead to complications of the male reproductive organs including epididymitis, or painful swelling of the testicles. This inflammation of the epididymis can lead to infertility in some cases.
In very rare cases, the gonorrhoea infection can spread to other parts of the body, causing serious infections such as meningitis.
Whatever your symptoms, you can find an effective gonorrhoea treatment that works for you.
The best method for avoiding all sexually transmitted infections including gonorrhoea is the continued use of barrier contraception such as a condom during all types of sexual intercourse.
