Treating Gonorrhea through home remedies and natural treatments

Natural cures for gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is also known as the clap. This is one of the most common STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), and it affects more than 90 million individuals every single year. This disease can happen in both men and women, and it should not be confused with Chlamydia which is a similar but distinct bacteria STD.

Gonorrhea is caused by a bacterium called Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This is a bacterium that does not go away on its own and requires immediate treatment. In most cases, this pathogen affects the urethra, rectum, and throat and causes painful swelling, burning, and foul discharge. After gonorrhea is diagnosed, then a course of antibiotics is usually prescribed. There are many symptoms that can be felt in both men and women.

Symptoms that are happening in men are frequent urination and sore throat; unusual discharge from the penis, usually green, yellow, or white in color; urine tinged with blood and urination accompanied by pain or burning.

Symptoms that are happening in women are inflamed cervix; fever; severe abdominal pain; painful intercourse, vaginal itching; sore throat; increased urination; urination accompanied by burning or pain, and unusual vaginal discharge, sometimes accompanied by yeast-like smell [1].

The symptoms of gonorrhea begin to appear two to ten days after you have been infected. In males, sometimes symptoms can be delayed up to 30 days. Talk with your doctor if you suffer from gonorrhea because he or she will tell you which the best natural treatment for you is. We do not guarantee that they will help you for sure.
