About two weeks ago I had unprotected sexual intercourse with my partner. A week after I started noticing a burning sensation when I passed urine and a discharge. I went to see the doctor right away and he diagnosed gonorrhea. He prescribed me 2 doses of Cipro XR 1000mg to be taken twice a day. That was 4 days ago and I'm still feeling the same symptoms. Yesterday, I went to see my family doctor and he prescribed me 2 more doses of Cipro 750mg along with 7 doses of Doxycycline 100mg to be taken twice a day. So far I'm still having the symptoms.
Do I have to wait more time for the medicines to take effect, or is it possible that the infection might be resistant to the treatment? Also, are the treatments for rectal gonorrhea the same, or if not, which are such treatments?
I was tested for gonorrhea but the results aren't out yet. They also gave me a smear test and found an infection. Possibly chlamydia. I was given 3 of the 500ml ceftriaxone on three consecutive days. They also precribed me doxycline tablets, which has to be consumed twice a day. How long does it take for the bacteria to clear up fully in my system? Is it normal for me to experience a low sex drive. I haven't been able to get a fully erected penis for awhile now, since i felt discomfort while i urinate. Is this normal? I'm pretty worried about it.
Well, the problem is this, while we (my partner and I) were taking Doxycycline we both stopped having discharges, one day after we finished our 4 day treatment of Doxy, the discharges returned. I had penile discharges and my partner had anal discharges. (i forgot to mention this early, but we are two gay men)
Regarding the lab results, due to a problem with my health insurance i could not receive the results. I'm getting tested again to see what do i actually have.
From personal experience chlamydia and gonorrhea are treated with different antibiotics. I
started getting discharge 3 days ago, went to see a doctor 2 days ago, and since they did not know what it was i was given antibiotics for chlamydia (azithromycin 2 tablets) and benzathine penicillin injection for gonorrhea. After taking azithromycin, symptoms were nearly gone in 24hrs ( i hope because of the tablets).
Possibly you were not treated for the right condition??
