The recommended treatment for gonorrhea is a combination of antibiotics, typically ceftriaxone and azithromycin. It is important to follow the prescribed treatment regimen and complete the full course of antibiotics to ensure the infection is fully cleared. It is also important to notify any sexual partners so they can be tested and treated if necessary.

First-line therapy:

- Azithromycin (1 gram orally in a single dose)

Alternative therapy (if azithromycin resistance is suspected):

- Ceftriaxone (125 mg intramuscularly as a single dose)


- Doxycycline is no longer recommended as first-line treatment due to increasing resistance.
- If the patient is allergic to penicillins and cephalosporins, spectinomycin (2 grams intramuscularly in a single dose) can be used.
- Pregnant women should not receive azithromycin. In these cases, ceftriaxone should be used.
