Fast, same-day STD testing
“How do you get gonorrhea?” is a more common question than some people realize. That’s perhaps in part because of all the misinformation on the web and elsewhere about what causes STDs like gonorrhea. We’re planning to set the record straight once and for all.
How do you get gonorrhea…
Yes. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease, which means it can be spread:
If you think you have gonorrhea, how do you get gonorrhea testing? It’s pretty simple. STD testing is available from primary care physicians, STD clinics and online STD testing companies. Gonorrhea testing can be conducted with a simple swab or urine sample and results are generally available in a few days.
Any STD testing facility that provides gonorrhea testing should also offer gonorrhea treatment (or a physician who can write a prescription for the treatment). So how do you get gonorrhea treatment to cure the infection? Simply take the full round of antibiotics as prescribed and the infection should clear up.
Naturally, gonorrhea symptoms are caused by having gonorrhea. But some STD symptoms (like burning urination, genital discharge, swollen testicles, and spotting between periods) may be caused by other conditions as well.
For example, yeast infections in women may mimic gonorrhea.
After STD testing confirms that you have gonorrhea, antibiotics can completely cure the infection. That’s because it’s a bacterial STD – that can only be spread through sexual contact.
