Can Gonorhea clear itself?

(1/2) > >>

Ok,not on meds yet,cd4=492,vl=21k.My doc did most of the std test except for ghonorhea and chlamydia.I had a green discharge from my penis about five years ago and that was only sign I had of a symptom,didnt get it checked out.So I asked my doc to check for gonarhea and chymidia,telling him it could be from 5 years ago.He did a swab of my penis but not my throat saying that there would be puss and I couldnt swallow if I had it in my thraot.I told him that I read on internet that sometimes there are no symptoms.He thinks the gonerhea might have cleared itself,maybe I 'flushed it out" with fluids.im confused,id hate to still have gonerhea/clamydia still untreated .Im waiting for the swab test but none was done for my thraot.Could I still have gonerhea from 5 years ago?

J.R.E.:
Hello ,

 I do not believe that gonorrhea can "clear itself" it needs to be treated. Here is a link with some more info :
