What is the Cure For Gonorrhea?
With the rise of bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) some people are asking "is Gonorrhea curable?" Among the modern STDs it is both very common and very curable. It is a disease prevalent in the African American community. It is also growing among people between 15 and 24 years old, but anybody can get it.
As Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection it can be cured through the use of a course of antibiotics, though antibiotic resistance has made curing the disease more difficult, especially if the disease has gone untreated for a long period of time.
The disease can be spread through many forms of sexual contact including, vaginal and anal sex. It can also be spread from using and sharing sexual aides. Mothers can spread it to babies during the birthing process through contact in the birth canal. However, the exposure to the disease can be limited when a doctor is made aware of the infection early. They will take steps to prevent contamination.
Once the disease is contracted it can be spread to the genitals, rectum, throat and eyes. It can affect blood, tissue, joint health and reproductive functions.
The disease can first be recognized when there is itching, bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort in the genital area. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all. When symptoms are recognized getting treatment quickly is essential to preventing tissue damage and infertility.
