How to prevent STI or STD?

Posted: November 6, 2011 in HEALTH AND WEALTH


Doctors treat chlamydia with prescription oral antibiotics such as azithromycin (Zithromax), doxycycline or erthromycin. You may be directed to take your medication in a one-time dose, or you may receive a prescription medication to be taken over the course of five to 10 days. The infection usually resolves within two weeks, and during that time, you should abstain from sex. Your sexual partners during the last six months should also be treated for chlamydia, even if they have no symptoms. The antibiotics will cure the infection, but they do not make you immune to it. So, it is possible to be reinfected.

 

What is Doxycycline?

Doxycycline is a tetracycline antibiotic. It fights bacteria in the body.

Doxycycline is used to treat many different bacterial infections, such as urinary tract infections, acne, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, periodontitis (gum disease), and others.

Doxycycline is also used to treat blemishes, bumps, and acne-like lesions caused by rosacea. Doxycycline will not treat facial redness caused by rosacea.

Doxycycline may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

You can also buy a tetracycline hydrochloride if you think you are already infected.

  3. Upon the completion off two research on space sledp and snoring, both showed
    that 5 astronauts totally stopped snoring even though in
    space. Along with that, many astronauts whoo suffered from sleep
    apnea (a situation in which a person stos breathing momentgarily in their sleep) had been cured of all symptoms whilst in space.
    Numerous scientists believed that they had the answer to their query
    and with out a particjlar amount of gravity snoring
    is highly unlikely.
