Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Actually this will not really work for gonorrhea - you really should get an injection of Rocephin (ceftriaxone) or a pill of Cipro, PLUS we also always treat for Chlamydia with Azithromycin too.

Both of those medications are listed on different web sites as acceptable cures. There was no intercourse involved only oral sex performed on me for a very short amount of time prior to using a condom.

Which websites?

WebMD I can't find the other one.
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 4 years ago.

Well - the clindamycin is not really a very good cure and this is not recommended if you have access to the Primary medications (antibiotics) that I have recommended - no practicing physician would actually prescribe this medication as a primary medication - and the reason it is listed on the WebMD is because sometimes you do not have it available - the dosage is 300mg THREE times per day for 7 to 10 days.
