How long it takes for the gonorrhea symptoms to go away? - Online Doctor Chats
After taking zinnat the discharge of gonorhea should clear
but confirmatory is when it comes back negative on tests
I did not understand your second question
Can you reframe the second question?
Emmm but he still have diacharge jelly foam from watery
After he took one shot zinnat he still hv burning pain when passing urine and he still have discharge yellow and whitish colour
Mostly we need to wait for about a week or 10 days to see if it clears
Tests will be able to confirm
The discharge should be examined under a microscope
But he didn't do any test for gonorrhea... He just ask opinion from doctor and take the antibiotic
You need to avoid having sexual intercourse until both of you are clear
How do I know that clear from gonorrhea ..?
It is mostly done by microscopic examination of the discharge and other fluids and swabs
If the not done ... And how do I know that he's clear from gonorrhea ? What is the sign ?
blood tests that test serology for gonorhea can also be done though less sensitive
I mean the discharge change to clear and no burning sensation when passing urine ...?
I think that you should not take risk]
What do u mean by less sensitive .?
If discharge is clear, still it may have some gonococci
Emmmm so what should I advice him ?
less sensitive means lesser ability to come back positive when infection is present
I think he should get tested and be sure that the infection is clear
But for now he still have discharge n it's whitish n sometimes yellowish colour ... after took zinnat 1gm before that it's watery he said a lot discharge and his underwater always wet like a swimming pool
It is a must as it may affect his health in the long run
Gonococci can be very hard to treat especially if it is resistant to the antibiotic that he may be taking
Thus first thing is that you should not take risk and should not have sexual intercourse with him until he is clear
U mean in the long term it's will occur again ?
It can recur
first we have to know for sure that he has gonococci
But he already took the zinnat 1gm and I'm waiting that there's improvement but I don't know how long and what it's shown to prove that he's heal from gonorrhea
We cannot give definitive diagnosis until proper tests are run
Only tests can prove that
So I still need to bring him to see Gp and take the sample ?
we cannot judge it reliably from visual inspection
Get him properly tested
if he does not have gonorhea than the whole worry is unnecessary
But the symptom is the same as I read in the internet
I understand that
I would still insist on getting tested and properly treated
Could u pls tell me ... How do I know that the antibiotic is working ... What is the changes between before n after take then zinnat ...? I mean improvement
discharge may disappear in 1 weeks time
The colour of discharge should become more clear than before
He don't have fever since he complain to me that he have discharge n burning sensation when passing urine
These should subside
In case of UTI different set of antibiotics may be needed
In such a scenario even urinalaysis is needed
Ok .... U mean after a week the discharge should be subside that's mean he's heal from gonorrhea
urine culture and sensitivity done
within a week
Could u pls tell me what is the antibiotic to treat uti ?
What is the result should I know regarding urine c&s ?
Urine culture and sensitivity should be before taking antibiotics
whatever antibiotic the bacteria are sensitive to should be taken after consultation with a doctor
Thank u doctor ... I really appreciate info that u give it to me...
Thanks for conulting
Ur welcome ...bye
