It is very unlikely.
The combination azithromycin and ceftriaxone shot are curative in more than 99% cases.
Mild symptoms are expected to persist for up to a week.
But the infection should have cleared already.
Ok because i noticed there wasnt a leakage of any kind in my underwear but when i milked and squeezed slightly there was a little bit of cloudy discharge.
Do you have any burning or pain?
there isnt pain in my right testical but a little discomfort
not much but slight
could be mental because of being paranoid
that is also normal.
yes I understand.
Do not worry.
this is not concerning.
and no burning when I urinate
when do you think the slight discharge will fully subside
your infection has cleared.
how do you know for sure?
and when is it ok to get tested again to make sure
supported by the current studies.
Repeat test is not recommended as that can remain positive falsely for several weeks.
Gonorrhea and chlamydia culture ( not the same test you had) can be ordered if the suspicion is very high for reinfection.
ok so I should wait probably 3 weeks or so?
Trust me I have more than 15 yrs' experience--we do not recommend repeat testing after full treatment for just ocassional discharge
yes correct at least 3 weeks.
ok great. I was worried because I heard that gonnorhea is getting difficult to even cure now
not with the treatment you received.
That is the CDC recommended treatment proven effective.
ok well thanks so much i feel better now. when will the occasional discharge fully subside? after 7 days you think?
yes within 7 days
do not worry.
great thanks for your help!
and enjoy your week
