gonorrhea is a contagious disease transmitted most often through sexual contact with an infected person. The infection is easily spread and occurs most often in people who have many sex partners. Gonorrhea is caused by neisseria gonorrhoeae, a bacterium that can grow and multiply easily in mucus membranes of the body. It is a very common infectious disease in the U.S. Each year, according to the CDC, there are as many as 700,000 new cases, with less than half of them reported to the CDC. There were 334,826 reported cases of gonorrhea in the U.S. in 2012. Sexually active teenagers have one of the highest rates of reported infections.


Symptoms in men may include:
Abnormal discharge from the penis (clear or milky at first, and then yellow, creamy, and excessive, sometimes blood-tinged), painful or frequent urination or urethritis, anal itching, discomfort, bleeding, or discharge, sore throat (rare) and pinkeye (conjunctivitis) (rare).

Other Symptoms:
Disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) occurs when the gonorrhea infection spreads to sites other than the genitals, such as the joints, skin,heart, or blood. Symptoms of DGI include: rash, joint pain or arthritis and inflamed tendons.

To diagnose gonorrhea, your doctor will use a swab to take a sample of fluid from the urethra in men. The specimen will then be sent to a lab to be analyzed. You also may be given a throat or anal culture to see if the infection is in your throat or anus. There are other tests which check a urine sample for the presence of the bacteria. You may need to wait for several days for your tests to come back from the lab. Gonorrhea and chlamydia, anothercommon sexually transmitted disease, often occur together, so you may be tested and treated for both.

Gonorrhea may not cause symptoms until the infection has spread to other areas of the body. In men, symptoms are usually obvious enough that they will cause a man to seek medical treatment before complications occur. But some men have mild or no symptoms and can unknowingly transmit gonorrhea infections to their sex partners.

To reduce your risk of gonorrhea infection:

Use condoms correctly every time you have sex.

Limit the number of sex partners, and do not go back and forth between partners.

Practice sexual abstinence, or limit sexual contact to one uninfected partner.

If you think you are infected, avoid sexual contact and see a doctor.

Any genital symptoms such as discharge or burning during urination or an unusual sore or rash should be a signal to stop having sex and to consult a doctor immediately. If you are told you have gonorrhea or any other STD and receive treatment, you should notify all of your recent sex partners so that they can see a doctor and be treated.

The best way to treat gonorrhea for men will be using traditional Chinese herb medicine, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a very good choice. It is totally natural and without any side effect can be caused by antibiotics. If you strictly obey the diet during the treatment, it can help kill all types of bacterium and virus which cause male urogenital system diseases, it can also kill mycoplasma and chlamydia.
