Life offers us a lot of choices every day. You can choose either to be happy or sad, to let go or hold on, to celebrate life or to be anxious about everything, to give up or to keep moving forward and finally, to allow brokenness into your life and let it consume you or be broken yet be whole again.
Sexually transmitted diseases are one of the leading causes of mortality rate in the whole world. Every day the number of men and women affected with sexually transmitted diseases in all ages just keeps on increasing.
“With nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted disease (STD) infections occurring each year, half of them among young people ages 15 to 24, prevention of STDs is more important than ever. STDs affect men and women of all backgrounds and economic levels, and add an estimated $16 billion to the nation’s healthcare costs each year”, as Center for Disease and Control reported.
“While reported rates are at historically low levels, cases increased slightly from last year and more than 300,000 cases were reported in 2010. There are also signs from other CDC surveillance systems that the disease may become resistant to the only available treatment option”.
Gonorrhea Treatment is a very important factor that you should know about, for increase awareness and to get yourself educated too.
What Is Gonorrhea?
Gonorrhea is sexually disease cause by Neisseria gonorrhoea, bacteria that can thrive in mucous membranes.
Neisseria gonorrhoea grows in warm, moist, areas of the body like reproductive tracts (cervix, uterus and others) in men and women. This bacterium can also live in the mouth, eyes, throat and anus.
Gonorrhea is transmitted through sexual interaction with the infected person (penis, vagina, mouth or anus).
In addition, Gonorrhea can also be transmitted from pregnant mother to her baby.
Who Are At Risk Of Gonorrhea?
Persons who are sexually active are at threat of getting gonorrhoea. Research shows that infections are actually higher among teenagers and young adults.
If you have been infected with gonorrhea before, is doesn’t mean that you are resistant to the infection. Most likely, if you are exposed to the infection you can still be infected.
If you suspect that you have a Gonorrhoea, it is very important that you seek the help from your Medical Doctor, usually they will get sample of your discharge from your urethra (men) or cervix (women) and use it to laboratory examination.
Throats and anal culture are also analysed if there’s any spread of the infection. Also, your Doctor asks for urine test if there are any other infections present in your urine (Urinary Tract Infection).
I always go with an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But sometimes life can bring unexpected things into your lives. Once you acquire gonorrhea, in its earlier state, it must be treated right away to avoid further complications.
Antibiotics are actually taken of those patients who are positive from gonorrhoea test, for those who had sexual activity with person infected with gonorrhoea within 2 months and also a baby whose mother been affected by gonorrhoea.
Antibiotics are actually within 7 days for 3 times a day. Make sure that you follow this rules because the next time the bacteria becomes resistant to the medicine so it won’t be effective anymore and side-effects such as lock jaw. This actually depends on your doctor’s prescription so make sure to follow it strictly.
Failure to follow the right dosage of antibiotics gonorrhea infection may not be cured.
Some bacteria are resistant to antibiotics, so after the time frame that the infection doesn’t get better, you need be retested with bacterial culture to make sure what kind of bacterium is present in your body that causes the infection.
Abstinence From Sex
While under gonorrhoea infection medication it is very important not to have sex during the required time. It is very important not to engage in sex while taking antibiotics to make sure that your situation becomes better.
The moment the infection metastasize d in other areas of your body, you need to be treated in the hospital.
Sometimes antibiotic treatment given intravenously (IV) or into a muscle (intramuscularly) IM, depending on your general practitioner.
You have to stay for a couple of days in the hospital to finally be treated with gonorrhoea.
Having multiple sexual partners can be very risky and dangerous when it comes to sexual health. It is very important that you must practice safe sex, like using condom and dental dam, to help you be protected from STI’s.
It is worthy to have one sexual partner than having multiples ones because you are sure that you are safe and you’ll eventually avoid future risky demeanours.
Contentment is more beneficial that wanting for more and putting your life in danger in the end.
Gonorrhea is a treatable sexual infection, but you have to be very careful because once it penetrates your system and left untreated it can cause infections in your body. Studies show that if gonorrhoea it can even cause sexual impotency for both men and women.
So, do not be afraid to seek medical help right away once you’ve established that you are suffering or feeling abnormal inside and outside your body.
At the end of the day, it’s not just about enjoying and having fun, but taking care of ourselves and caring for others. I believe these are the things that make life worthwhile.
Gonorrhea treatments are necessary to free yourself from adverse effects in your body and even your life.
