Cure Gonorrhea without Going to the Doctor, Cure Gonorrhea without Going to the Doctor

Treatment Available Online


The treatment that we offer is second line treatment for those who don’t want an injection or don't want to go to the doctors surgery.

Sex without using a condom can increase your risk of getting a STI. Also, sex toys should be washed and covered with a new condom each time they are used.

The treatment for gonorrhoea that we prescribe is two tablets of Suprax (400mg) and four tablets of Azithromycin(2G). Both are taken together as a single dose.

You will need to complete an online or phone consultation before a treatment can be sent to you but don't worry, this is a fairly simple and very discreet service


Testing for Gonorrhea


If you have put yourself at risk and are concerned, then you should wait 14 days before taking a test as it may take this amount of time before the infection can be detected.

If you visit your GP you will probably be signposted to a genitourinary medicine, GUM, clinic which may also be called a Sexual Health Clinic. If you find it difficult to either get an appointment at a clinic or are simply short of time or indeed too embarrassed to go to a clinic, you can choose to order a test from us at Webmed Pharmacy.

You can get a test kit from our web site

Our test kits are sent to The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) in London. They are the largest independent providers of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the UK. Once the lab has received your sample, your results will be available 2-3 days later.

The kits are posted in discreet plain unmarked packaging with no indication of their contents or who it‘s from.

How Does Gonorrhoea Infection Treatment Work?


The Treatment That We Offer Is Second Line Treatment For Those Who Don’t Want An Injection Or Are Unable To Get To A Sexual Health Clinic.

Cefixime belongs to a group of antibiotics called cephalosporins which are related to penicillin. It works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form cell walls.

The cell walls are vital to their survival and thus this causes the death of the bacteria and the subsequent elimination of the infection. The combination of the two antibiotics Suprax (Cefixime) and Azithromycin taken as a single dose will treat urogenital and rectal gonorrhoea in both women and men.read more

Home gonorrhoea treatmentThe World Health Organization, WHO, has estimated that one million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) occur every single day. (1)

Overall, in the UK the cases of sexually transmitted infections are increasing.

In England alone, in 2018, there were 447,694 new diagnoses of STIs, a 5% increase on the 422,147 in 2017. (2)

Gonorrhoea increased the most, by 26% to 56,259 cases, the largest number since 1978.

The number of gonorrhoea cases has been increasing for years among both men and women, despite repeated warnings from public health doctors about the risks of unprotected sex.

Gonorrhoea, sometimes referred to as "The Clap", is a bacterial infection passed between people through unprotected sex.

About 50% of women and 10% of men are unaware that they’re infected as they don’t experience any obvious symptoms and this means that the infection can go untreated until the disease has progressed. This can lead to serious long-term health problems and infertility.

If symptoms are experienced, they usually occur about 10 days after being infected. Men and women are affected differently: (3)

Men may experience

  • Burning sensation/pain when urinating

  • Inflammation of the foreskin

  • An unusual discharge from the tip of the penis that may be green, yellow or white.

  • Tenderness or pain in the testicles

While women may experience

  • Burning sensation/pain when urinating

  • Bleeding between periods and/or heavier periods

  • A change in vaginal discharge which may be thick and green or yellow in colour.

  • Lower abdominal discomfort

  • Bleeding after sex

Testing

If you have put yourself at risk and are concerned, then you should wait 14 days before taking a test as it may take this amount of time before the infection can be detected.

If you visit your GP you will probably be signposted to a genitourinary medicine, GUM, clinic which may also be called a Sexual Health Clinic.  If you find it difficult to either get an appointment at a clinic or are simply short of time or indeed too embarrassed to go to a clinic, you can choose to order a test from us at Webmed Pharmacy.

For test kits click here.

Our test kits are sent to The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) in London. They are the largest independent providers of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the UK. Once the lab has received your sample, your results will be available 2-3 days later.

The kits are posted in discreet plain unmarked packaging with no indication of their contents or who it‘s from.

Treatment

If your test is positive for gonorrhoea we can refer you to a GUM clinic for treatment. The first line treatment, as recommended by the British Association for Health and HIV, BASHH, is an injection of a single antibiotic.

If you can’t get to a GUM clinic, unable to get an appointment or have a needle phobia then our doctor can prescribe second line treatment that comprises of two different antibiotics that you take orally. As our treatment is second line, and therefore not considered to be as effective as the first line treatment, we provide a free “test of cure” that you can send to the lab 14 days after treatment to make sure you are clear of infection.

We will ask that you complete a simple medical questionnaire that our Doctor can assess for your suitability and, if approved, be prescribed the oral antibiotics to treat the infection.

Your treatment will be delivered in discreet, unmarked packaging with no mention of the contents or who it’s from. You can have your parcel delivered to your home or work address and, if in an area where we use DPD, you can have it diverted to a local pickup shop where you can collect it at your convenience.

The symptoms for all STIs are very similar and it’s better to get tested to find out which STI you may have rather than trying to guess from your symptoms. Then you can receive the most appropriate treatment and be sure of treating the infection successfully.

This is especially important for gonorrhoea as there is evidence of a resistant strain of gonorrhoea emerging in the UK and unnecessary prescribing of antibiotics can contribute to this.

Online Testing And Treatment For Gonorrhoea

Posted 14 May 2019 in Gonorrhoea Articles, Sexual Health

Stained cellsGonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection and can be caught by having unprotected sex with an infected person. It can affect both men and women. Symptoms do not appear until about 10 – 12 days after infection and some 50% of women and 10% of men are unaware that they have it, because there may be no obvious symptoms. This can lead to long term health problems and infertility. (1)

Symptoms in men are a burning sensation when urinating, pain in the testicles, a discharge from the penis that may be white, yellow, or green, and inflammation of the foreskin if present. In women there will also be a burning sensation when urinating, vaginal discharge which may be green or yellow, lower abdominal discomfort, bleeding after sex, and bleeding between periods. (1)

If you are concerned that you may have been at risk, you need to wait 14 days before taking a test because it may not be detected earlier.

At Webmed Pharmacy we can supply test kits  and treatment for both men and women.  Click here for test kits.

In all mainland UK except the Scottish Highlands and islands, the kits will be delivered the next working day by DPD in unmarked packaging. All other areas will receive their discreet parcels by Royal Mail special delivery the next working day. (2)

You then take your sample using the test kit and send it in a pre-paid envelope to The Doctors Laboratory in London. Results will be available 2 – 3 days later, and we will contact you by email or SMS to tell you that there is a message waiting for you in your secure inbox at Webmed Pharmacy.

If your test proves positive for gonorrhoea or chlamydia we will then ask you to complete a simple medical questionnaire online so that our doctor can assess you for your suitability and, if approved, can prescribe the oral antibiotics that you need to cure the infection. (3)

For Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea treatments, click here

If you have already tested positive using a home test kit from another site or a clinic, you can still complete the online questionnaire and if approved our doctor can prescribe the oral antibiotics. You should then take another test in order to ensure that you are free of infection 14 days after gonorrhoea treatment online, and we supply a FREE test kit to you for this purpose.
