How can Gonorrhea be Treated?

Gonorrhea is treated with antibiotics.

Gonorrhea can be cured with proper treatment. Medicines will stop the infection but will not repair any permanent damage done by the disease.

Penicillin derivative antibiotics such as ampicillin or amoxicillin are recommended for the treatment of gonorrhea. Since resistance to penicillin is increasing, other antibiotics can be given like ceftriaxone or spectinomycin.

Women who are pregnant should not be given doxycycline and are usually given an alternative antibiotic such as erythromycin.

All medications should be taken as prescribed, and the infected person should refrain from sexual intercourse during the course of treatment.

It is also important to locate and test the sexual partners of the infected person; and treat them to prevent further spread of gonorrhea.
