Throughout Europe, 77% of adults admitted to having unprotected sex and a worrying 62% revealed they’ve never been tested for sexually transmitted infections. This, combined with the fact that the number of reported STI cases in Europe has trebled since the early 1990s, presents a worrying picture of the sexual health of European adults.
Gonorrhoea is one of the fastest-spreading sexually transmitted infections in the country, second only to chlamydia, and is commonly known as ‘the clap’. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can lead to infertility and can even be life threatening if the infection spreads to your blood and joints.
Because it’s a bacterial infection, a gonorrhoea treatment can eradicate the infection with a single dose of two combined antibiotics. Azithromycin and Cefixime are included in our Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack and are used together as a successful gonorrhoea treatment which will be prescribed by a registered doctor.
What are the symptoms of gonorrhoea?
The more common symptoms of this infection include itching, rashes, bleeding, discharge and painful bowel movements.
Some men don’t show any symptoms at all; however, if symptoms do appear they are most likely to include a burning sensation when urinating and a coloured discharge from the penis. In some rare cases, men who have ‘the clap’ will experience painful or swollen testicles.
The symptoms of gonorrhoea are often less aggressive in women, and sometimes don’t show at all. The more common symptoms include a painful or burning sensation when urinating, vaginal bleeding between periods, pain during sex, pain in your stomach, an itchy, swollen or red vagina and increased vaginal discharge.
Regardless of how mild or severe a person’s symptoms are, serious complications can arise from this infection.
What causes gonorrhoea?
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the bacterium responsible for this infection. It’s passed on during unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex or by sharing sex toys. You should note that ejaculation doesn’t have to take place in order to contract or spread this STI.
What are the risks of gonorrhoea?
If you don’t seek out a gonorrhoea treatment, the infection can have more serious consequences. Regardless of gender differences, ‘the clap’ can raise your risk of contracting HIV and put people at a greater risk of developing AIDS.
It can also lead to epididymitis in men, which is a painful condition where the ducts attached to the testicles become inflamed and can eventually cause infertility. In women, untreated gonorrhoea can increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy and become life threatening as it can spread to the joints and blood.
How can gonorrhoea treatment help?
Gonorrhoea treatment comes in the form of a single antibiotic Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack containing Cefixime and Azithromycin, which can be taken in a single powerful dose. Cefixime is not always effective against certain types of gonorrhoea, so it’s important for you to take both treatments simultaneously to ensure effective treatment against the infection.
It’s essential that you complete the entire course of gonorrhoea treatment. If you stop taking the antibiotics early, the infection may still be present in your body and its very likely that it will return.
If you have taken a positive gonorrhoea test, you need to begin treatment as soon as possible. If you buy your Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack from HealthExpress.eu, you could receive your antibiotics the very next day, delivered straight to your door.
All you need to do is complete a consultation with one of our registered doctors. You can do this online, or over the phone if you’d prefer. Once the consultation has been reviewed, a doctor will decide if this treatment is suitable for you to use and write you a prescription. Your medication will be dispensed by our registered pharmacy, which will post it to you via free next-day delivery.
