Can Gonorhea clear itself?
« on: July 19, 2006, 09:32:13 PM »
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?

Hello ,

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


Current Meds ; Viramune, Epzicom, 20mg of Atorvastatin, 25 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide.
Amlodipine Besolate 5mg-- Updated 9/24/2017

Diagnosed positive in 1985,.. In October of 2003, My t-cell count was 16, Viral load was over 500,000, Percentage at that time was 5%. I started on  HAART on October 24th, 2003.

 As of 9/18/2017,  Viral load remains <40
CD 4 @358 /  CD4 % @ 13

My doctor told me that gonorrhea in the throat can clear itself.

No, according to everything I've read on the subject, it won't go away on its own.  Symptoms might appear to be relieved, though.  Get it checked out.  Many guys who have it in their throats only notice a sore throat, but can pass it on, definitely.  If you've had it for five years, you'd have known that you infected someone along the way, I imagine.  Best wishes.

They mailed me my results which read"culture negative ,all normal,no infection.So,the green/yellow discharge if it was Ghonerea did indeed clear itself. However,Im skeptical of these results because I read that when you get cultured from the urethra,you should not urinate before the culture.Well i did as I drink lots of water when I get home from work and that day of the test was no different. Also when I got there I told the first women who saw me I had a sore throat so she cultured my throat.Then the physician assistant who saw me who cultured my urethra did not want to culture my throat as though it would be a waste of time because there was no discharge or puss.So Im not sure if the thraot was checked.  ok,lack of communication on my part.I should have made sure just what was tested.Ill have to talk to my hiv doc when I see him or go to an std clinic. :-\Thanx for listening. :)
