Childlessness is not a sentence to hopelessness

Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea of the Throat

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea of the Throat 

A lot of people give little to no importance to Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) even though they can have a huge impact on their sexual as well as their social life. Practicing safe sex can always ensure that you stay safe from STDs and STIs but people don’t take the necessary precautions and as a result, fall prey to infections like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. 

Both of these infections can be transmitted sexually and can have an extremely adverse impact on your sexual life. Since they can be passed upon to other people with whom you have sexual contact, it is important to get these infections diagnosed as much as possible. However, while tests are usually only done for finding the infection in the sexual organs, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea can also affect the throat. It gets particularly difficult to diagnose the infections when they affect the throat as most tests don’t even take samples from the throat. As a result, people who have Chlamydia or gonorrhea of the throat might end up passing it on to others via oral sex.  A great amount of information available on the subject at healthcentre.org

Symptoms of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea of the Throat

The diseases show little to no symptoms in most patients and this remains the biggest hurdle in identifying a problem in the first place. Since most of the patients don’t feel any symptom that might even indicate the presence of an STI let alone an STI that is affecting their throat, people don’t take any precautions while having oral sex. The signs that the diseases do show in some people include:

Swelling of the throat
Soreness experienced in the throat. You might not be able to swallow hard food as easily as in a normal situation.
Tenderness experienced in and around the throat.
Discharge coming out.
Variety of white spots sprouting all over the throat’s back
Swelling of the neck glands

Both men and women would go through similar symptoms if the disease does show symptoms. The symptoms usually start to show around three to ten days after the infection has found its way into the throat through oral sex. You can also check the symptoms from this website.

Tests for Diagnosing Chlamydia and Gonorrhea of the Throat

A special and specific test needs to be conducted in order to positively confirm the diagnosis of Chlamydia or gonorrhea of the throat. The test usually done in order to check for the infection is call the Polymerase Chain Reaction test or the PCR test. The test is considered the most reliable by all medical institutes and medical experts believe that there is no other test which can return the results with such accuracy. The PCR test works by amplifying the sample given by the patient so that even if a very small quantity of the bacteria exists in the sample, it can be detected easily. 

The sample given by the patient obviously needs to be from the throat so that it can be confirmed or denied with accuracy whether the patient is suffering from Chlamydia of the throat or gonorrhea of the throat. 

Options for Treatment

The prescription of antibiotics is amongst treatment recommendations for gonorrhea of the throat or Chlamydia of the throat. There are a number of different antibiotics prescribed by doctors according to the case of their patients. However, the most prescribed antibiotic is doxycycline. It is not necessary that it has to be an oral antibiotic though. In many cases, ceftriaxone is prescribed and is given to the patient in the form of an injection. 

It is important that you get your sexual partner tested for the same disease as well so that he/she can also be treated. If you won’t take this step then you might find yourself infected again. 

Best Way to Get Tested

If you suspect that your body is showing symptoms of Chlamydia and gonorrhea of the throat then you should go online and order a test for the diseases from an online clinic that works in your area. Once you will order the test, you will be delivered a package containing the instructions as well as the test kit. All you would need to do is to follow the instructions in order to get the sample and then send it back to the testing company. Your results would be sent to you via e-mail and based on the test, you can also ask for delivery of your medication. Such a facility is available here.

I was almost giving up hope of ever bearing a child and I just couldn't take the pressure any longer. At my weakest moment, I consulted these experts and they gave me a whole new dimension of what I needed to do. If you are childless and you are out there, don't ever give up hope until you talk to these great people.
