Gonorrhea Symptoms And Treatment

2:41 AM 0

Gonorrhea Symptoms  And Treatment

Everything you need to know about gonorrhea, the causes of gonorrhea, symptoms and how to treat it.First of all I will start by explaining what gonorrhea is.


          What Is Gonorrhea ?
Gonorrhea is defined as a sexual transmitted disease that is caused by a bacteria called Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, this bacteria can be contracted from one person to another, through unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person [anal and vaginal oral sex], which may lead to infection of the urethra, [the urine tube]. And this bacteria may also affect the cervix if you did not treat it on time. Gonorrhea infection can exceed to higher portions of reproductive organ" causing  inflammation of the prostate and inflammation of the epididymis disease in men, apelvic in women. Gonorrhea can also cause "Gonococcal Proctitis" which means, inflammation of the anus and rectum. It may also infect the throat, resultig to Gonococcal pharyngitis, which means inflammation of the pharynx that causes soreness.

To a lower extent, gonorrhea can spread to other parts of the body through bloodstream. Resulting to arthritis, fever and a characteristic rash, in pregnant women with untreated gonorrhea. This bacteria called "Neisseria gonorrhoeae" may spread to the eyes of their babies during delivery, thereby causing "Gonococcal Ophthalmia" which means a several eye infection in newborn babies.

A lot of people who are infected with this bacteria, will have no symptoms. More especially the women' they are more likely to have no symptoms at all than men. When the bacteria causes symptoms,they usually develope within ten days (10) after unprotected sex with an infected person, men may develop a discharge from the urethra, " the opening at the end of penis where the urine comes out" looking red around the urethra, urinating frequently, pains and discomfort when urinating. While in women, they may develop pain or discomfort when urinating, a virginal discharge, discomfort in the anal and frequent urination. The disease will spread to the uterus and fallopian tubes causing fever, abnormal menstrual, bleeding and pains during sexual intercourse.

In cases of gonococcal pharyngitis, the infected person may have a sore throat or may not have any symptoms. Because many people with gonococcal pharyngitis do not have any symptoms, but when they occur " they commonly include: persistent urge to move the bowels or mucus pus, itching or rectal pain and rectal discharge that contains blood. When gonorrhea spread through the bloodstream' it can cause swelling in the several joints, a characteristic rash, pain and fever. And newborn babies infected with this bacteria "gonococcal ophthalmia" the symptoms appears one to four days after delivery, and it affects one or both eyes as shown in the picture. And the symptoms includes: swelling of the eyelids, eyes discharge that is thick which contains pus, and redness of eyes. If you did not teat it, it may cause blindness.


                  Prevention

Gonorrhea as a sexual transmitted diseases can be prevented through:

1. Having sex with uninfected person.

2. Always using comdom "male or female comdom" during sex.

3. Avoiding sexual intercourse.

Gonorrhea is a horrible disease, so to prevent gonococcal ophthalmia in new born babies, all pregnant women are advised to conduct gonorrhea test during their first prenatal.women at risk of infection during pregnancy are also advised to repeat the test  during third trimester. Newborn babies can be treated at birth with eye ointment or anti-inffective eye drops.

                   Diagnosis

Doctors can suspect gonorrhea based on signs and symptoms, your sexual history and the results of physical and gynecological examinations. They can also confirm diagnosis of gonococcal infection by swabbing the affected area. "Throat, cervix,urethra and rectum" then they will send the sample to a laboratory to check if bacteria grow. It can also be teasted for gonorrhea infection. 
Gonorrhea rapidly improve with antibiotics therapy, when an infected women is not treated. This bacteria can spread to the fallopian tubes, causing miscarriages and infertility. In those suspected  of having the bacteria that has spread beyond the genital tract and other fluids, e.g joint fluid or blood .

                Prognosis

Gonorrhea infections are diagnosed  and treated correctly and rapidly,recovery is usually complete unless pelvic inflammation disease develops. Pelvic inflammation disease is more likely to develop when there is delay in treatment, causing abdominal pain, infertility, scarred fallopian tube, and chronic.
Professional health practitioners, recommended that all patients treated gonorrhea should be treated chlamydia infection too. Because 35-50 percent of female and 15-25 percent of male with gonorrhea infection also have chlamydia infections.

After menstruation or sexual intercourse, a lot of women carry out douching for microflora purification using a solution made by adding 1 spoon of vinegar to 1 liter of water.

How To Remove Stretch Marks

How To Remove Stretch Marks.

About 80% of women out there have stretch marks, according to the research conducted at University of Michigan Health System. But while they are very common  and there is  absolutely nothing wrong with having  stretch marks, many women can still feel self-conscious about these little lines.
According to  Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr Arash Akhavan stated that the most typical areas for stretch marks to occur are the abdomen. (from weight gain or pregnancy), shoulders, breast and hips. Also the buttock and thigh areas of the body. That is to say, if you are looking for ways to  minimize your appearance, listen very well. "If you actually want to have some sort of lasting benefit in the look of your stretch marks, you need to develop collagen, according to Dr. Akhavan.
Here is how to remove stretch marks.
     Before I commence, I want you to understand stretch marks.



To understand stretch marks I want you to know that,  the topmost layer of the skin, is called the epidermis while the second layer below  is the dermis, which contains bundles of collagen. Some people have genetically thick skin with a lot of elasticity, while others have less, which makes them more prone to develop stretch marks in some areas of the body.
According to Dr. Arash Akhavan, stretch marks are caused when there is a period of rapid growth in the body system" that suddenly stretches the skin, and in turn, pulls on your collagen bundles in the dermis. During this time, those bundles tear away from each other, and then when the skin returns to its normal state (e.g. it stops growing), “that most superficial layer "the epidermis"can appear wrinkly and stretched because it is not supported by the same collagen structure underneath,” Dr. Arash Akhavan explains.

           Causes Of Stretch Marks




What causes this "rapid grow?
Here I will explain to you what causes this "RAPID GROWTH" that makes stretch marks to occur.
That triggers stretch marks? Dr. Akhavan says that growth spurts from puberty, pregnancy, rapid weight gain, or increased muscle mass from working out can all be the culprit. Any growth that suddenly stretches the skin will stretch your collagen bundles, he says, which then leads to stretch marks if your skin genetically has less elastin.
It is literally impossible to 100 percent get rid of them," Dr. Akhavan notes, but there are things that you can definitely do to improve them, reducing their appearance, which revolves around building collagen.


    Understand How To Minimize Your Appearance




According to Dr. Arash Akhavan, there is no approved prescription creams for stretch marks.However, he suggested using creams that contain retinoids over others at-home topicals. Some (at-home topical creams) can make your skin inflamed" he says, so while you are using the formula your stretch marks will not be as visible, but the cream is not actually changing your skin in any way.

In his experience as a dermatologist, Dr. Akhavan says that retinoids are a go-to ingredient that have shown improvement. I have never seen any other creams marketed toward stretch marks that works, just ones that contain retinoids. He noted
Paula's Choice Resist Retinol Skin Smoothing Body Treatment, as the best cream you can use to minimize stretch marks.

         Understanding More On Retinol 
                           Cream
Dr. Arash Akhavan highly recommends using retinol creams, because they contains vitamin A-derived product commonly prescribed for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The way they work for wrinkles is by building collagen, making collagen bundles thicker and healthier, he says So, using the same retinol creams for stretch marks also leads to some improvement in their appearance. Obviously prescription retinoids are a little stronger than over the counter, so you will see more effect there. 
Note:  You can not use retinol while pregnant, and these creams don't work preventatively [e.g they only work on stretch marks after appying them).

            The Laser Treatments
There are FDA-cleared devices that actually have good studies that support them,Dr. Akhavan recommends using the ICON 1540 Fractional Laser as it is "the only FDA-cleared laser for the treatment of stretch marks. In studies, patients have shown between a 50 to 75% improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks, he stated.

          How  does fractional laser work?
You are first numbed, and then the laser delivers pulses of energy into your skin  without causing any harm to it. Tricking your cells into thinking they are injured, Dr. Akhavan explains more. This causes your body's natural healing process to kick in, triggering your cells to release all the chemicals they need to create new collagen in that area. This process eventually improves the appearance of your stretch marks. It is the ICON 1540 that actually has the FDA-clearance for treatment of stretch marks mostly, but other lasers that develop collagen would theoretically work as well,  Dr.Akhavan says. For more information about [Fractional laser]  contact your dermatologist.


          The Use Of Micro-Needling 



This is my first choice, and it is the safest option and would be tag as laser treatment for Stretch marks" according to Dr. Arash  Akhavan .This minimally invasive treatment which works on all skin tones because it does not cause hyperpigmentation, is done by a derm or aesthetician to create tiny punctures in the skin using micro-fine needles. [From 0.5 to 2 millimeters in diameter]. This act then triggers the body's wound healing process, similar to how laser works" Stimulating collagen and elastin production.

According to Dr. Arash Akhavan, the only drawbacks both laser treatments and micro-needling require multiple sessions and a lot of patience. It is going to take time to see the results, he says, so from any single micro-needling session or laser treatment, it is going to take about four months to see the collagen generation, Dr. Arash Akhavan  explain. These are all ways to remove stretch marks and treatments that requires doing  them regularly and you have to be patient with the results. And believe me within a space of one month your stretch marks will be removed.

How To Prevent Pregnancy Naturally

How to prevent Pregnancy Naturally


A alot of women are looking for ways to avoid pregnancy without using contraceptive pills or any other form of chemical birth control. But if you can  carefully monitor your body reproductive cycle and avoid sex during times when you are fertile, you can prevent pregnancy without using other forms of contraception. Using natural birth control methods can help you understand your body system better and have greater control over your sex life. And prevent pregnancy naturally

Steps To Prevent Pregnancy Naturally


         

             Know your ovulation period

 Ovulation occur when one of your ovaries releases an egg cell that begins to travel down the fallopian tube. The egg is ready to be fertilized during the next 12 to 24 hours if it meets a male sperm cell. If it meets a sperm and gets fertilized, the egg implants in your uterus; in other words, you become pregnant. If the egg doesn't get fertilized during that 12 to 24-hour period, it is released along with your uterine lining, and you have your period
  • For most women, ovulation happens about halfway through the menstrual cycle. The average cycle last for  28 days, but it can range from 24 or fewer to 32 or more. When you have your period, the cycle begins again.





    Know what it means to be fertile


When ever you have sex, sperm cells are ejaculated into the body, where they can live for up to five days.You can get pregnant if you have unprotected sex during the five days before ovulation and up till the day you ovulate. This is considered your fertile time, and to prevent pregnancy, you have to avoid unprotected sex during this period

•It sounds simple, but it's actually quite difficult to pinpoint exactly when this window ends and begins, since every woman's cycle is different.
  • The point of using contraceptive methods, natural or not, is to prevent sperm from meeting your egg cell during your fertile period.






To understand how natural contraceptive works 

   Natural contraceptive also called fertility awareness or natural family planning, has two parts. First, you have to track your body reproductive cycle well enough to point out when your fertile period begins and ends. Second, you have to avoid having sex during times when there's a chance you could get pregnant. When used perfectly, this method is 90 percent effective. When used typically, it is 85 percent effective (one percent less effective than condoms)


  • Tracking your body's reproductive cycle involves three daily tasks: taking your basal body temperature, checking your vaginal mucus, and recording your findings on a calendar. The combination of these tracking methods is called the sympto-thermal method of fertility awareness. Over time, you can analyze this data and have a good idea of when your fertilemo  begins and ends.
  • The tricky part is figuring out exactly when you can and can't have sex. Most women avoid sex for a stretch that starts a few days before the fertility window begins and ends a few days after the fertility window ends to play it safe. If you want to keep having sex, you can also choose to use a condom or another contraceptive method during this stretch.
  • Tracking your cycle is not an exact science. Factors like weight gain or loss, stress, illness and aging can change your cycle drastically from month to month. For natural contraception to be effective, it's essential to use all the tracking methods as strictly as possible, and interpret the data ovehelpful.

         Get a basal thermometer


 Your basal body temperature is your lowest temperature over a period of 24 hours. Your body experiences a slight rise in temperature just after ovulation. Monitoring your basal body temperature over time can give you an indication of when your peak fertility time is about to begin. Basal body thermometers are available in drugstores, and should come with a chart to help you track your temperature every day.
  • It's important to get a basal body thermometer, which measures your temperature's changes in small increments. A regular thermometer that you might use to check for a fever will not give you exact enough measurements to be helpful.




Record your basal body temperature every morning


To accurately track your basal body temperature, you must take your temperature at the same time every day. The most accurate way to do this is to take your temperature right when you wake up, before you get out of bed and start moving around. Keep the thermometer by your bed and get in the habit of taking your temperature first thing in the morning.

  • Basal body temperature can be taken in your vagina or in your mouth. Taking your temperature in your vagina will give you the most accurate reading from day to day. Whether you take your temperature orally or vaginally, do it the same way every day to ensure your readings are as consistent as possible.
  • To take your temperature, follow the instructions that came with your thermometer to set the thermometer and then insert it in your vagina. When you hear it beep after about thirty seconds to a minute, write down the exact temperature on the chart that came with your thermometer or in a diary. Make sure you record the date along with the temperature.




Search for a temperature spike that last between seven to twelve days


Before you ovulate, your average body temperature will range between 97.2 and 97.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Two to three days after ovulation, your body temperature will sharply rise between 0.4 and 1.0 degrees. This higher temperature usually lasts between seven and twelve days before dropping back to the lower temperature. Tracking this temperature spike from month to month will reveal a pattern, allowing you to begin anticipating when your body will next ovulate.



Track your temperature every day for three months


Do not rely on this method for accurate information about your reproductive cycle until you've taken your temperature for three months or more. If your cycle is regular, three months' worth of data should be enough to help you predict when your fertility will peak in the following months.
  • If your cycle tends to be irregular, you may need to take your temperature for six months or more before you can rely on the patterns that emerge.

  • Note that illness, stress, drinking alcohol and other factors can also affect your body temperature. That's why it's important to use this method with other tracking methods to back yourself up in case the basal body temperature pattern is thrown off for any reason.




  Interpretation the pattern to anticipate ovulation


 After three or more months of tracking your temperature every day, use your findings to try to anticipate when you'll ovulate next. It will be difficult to know exactly when you're going to ovulate, but several months' worth of data can help you find a general period during which you will be fertile. Interpret the data in this way:

  • Look at your chart and find the day when your regular spike in temperature occurs each month.
  • On a calendar, mark the two or three days before this temperature spike as the days when you are likely to ovulate. Remember, your temperature doesn't spike until two to three days after ovulation.
  • To practice natural contraception, avoid unprotected sex for at least five days before ovulation is supposed to begin, up through ovulation day.
  • Using the temperature method with other methods will give you a more accurate idea of when you'll be fertile.
  • Using the temperature method with other methods will give you a more accurate idea of when you'll be fertile.





Always examine your cervical mucus every morning



Start Checking  your cervical mucus after your period begins to taper off. Cervical mucus, which leaves your body as vaginal discharge, changes in texture, color and smell throughout your cycle. By checking it every day, you can use the patterns you find to predict when your body is fertile.

  • To check your mucus, wash your hands, then insert two fingers into your vagina and 






      Find out the texture and color


These characteristics of mucus change from day to day as your hormone levels fluctuate. The presence of certain types of mucus will indicate that your body is about to ovulate or has ovulated. Here are the qualities mucus has at different times in the cycle:

  • During the three to five days after your period ends, you'll probably have little to no discharge. It's highly unlikely you'll get pregnant during this time.
  • After the dry period, mucus will be cloudy and a little tacky. It's improbable (but not impossible) that you'll get pregnant if you have sex during this time.
  • Following the tacky discharge, it will start to become white or yellowish and creamy, similar to lotion. You are more likely to become pregnant if you have sex during this time, but your fertility has not yet peaked.
  • Following the creamy discharge, you'll notice thin, stretchy mucus with the consistency of egg whites. It might stretch between your fingers without breaking. Ovulation occurs on or after the last day this mucus is produced. When you see this kind of mucus, you are extremely fertile, and the likelihood of getting pregnant is high.
  • Afterward, it will return to the cloudy, tacky stage for several days.
  • The cycle ends when your period comes.



 Keep a record of your muscus characteristics

Write down the color and texture of your mucus every day. You may want to use the same chart you're using to track your temperature, so you have all the data in the same place. Remember to record the date as well. Here are examples of some detailed entries you might write:
  • 4/22: Mucus is tacky and white.
  • 4/26: Mucus is whitish and runny, like egg whites.
  • 4/31: Period started; heavy flow





After recording, interpret your cervical mucus patte



Your cervical mucus data will become more meaningful if you track your  patterns over several months, preferably three or more.Start looking for a regular pattern so you can try to predict when you will be fertile in the coming months.

  • You are most fertile when your mucus has the consistency of stretchy egg whites. Err on the safe side by avoiding sex for a few days before and after your mucus takes on these qualities each month. You might want to stop having sex when your mucus changes from tacky to creamy.
  • Compare the data to your basal body temperature patterns. Your mucus will probably turn stretchy and wet several days before your body temperature spikes. Ovulation will typically happen between the change in muc
  • us and the temperature spike.



You have to know your menstrual cycle



 Aside from taking your temperature and testing your mucus, you can use a calendar to track your cycle and help inform your predictions about when you're fertile. Most women with regular periods have a cycle that lasts between 26 and 32 days, although there are some women with shorter or longer cycles. The first day of your cycle is the first day your period starts, and the last day is the beginning of your next period.

  • For many women, the cycle changes a little from month to month. Stress, illness, weight loss or gain, and other factors can change your cycle.
  • In order for the calendar method to be useful, it should be used in conjunction with the other tracking methods.


Track your menstrual cycle calendar

You can track your circle the first day your cycle starts each month, mark it with a dot, or use another way of identifying the first day of your period. At the end of each cycle, count the number of days your cycle lasted.

  • Track your cycle for at least eight cycles to start gaining accurate data about the length of your cycle.
  • Keep a total of the number of days in each cycle and look for patterns.


Do not rely on this method without others


          You  might be tempted to skip taking your temperature and checking your mucus, but the calendar method alone is not reliable enough to accurately predict when you'll be fertile. Use the calendar method to help reinforce the patterns you recognize from the other methods.

  • There are too many factors that can affect the length of your cycle for this method to be completely reliable on its own.
  • If you experience irregular periods, this method may not provide useful information.

Find out when you are most likely to be fertile

Your period of fertility begins at the time when all the patterns align to indicate that you are about to ovulate. After using each tracking method for a period of several months, you should be able to have a pretty good picture of when your body will be fertile. You are probably fertile when.

  • Your records indicate that your basal body temperature will spike in three to five days, when you will ovulate.
  • Your cervical mucus is white or yellow and creamy, just before it becomes wet, stretchy and similar to egg whites in texture.
  • Your calendar shows that your first fertile day has begun.

Use the pattern to know when you will be fertile


You have to first of all find the shortest cycle you've ever tracked. Subtract 18 from the number of days the cycle lasted, and write down the number. Next, find day one of your current cycle on your calendar. Use the number you wrote down to count forward from the first day of your current cycle. The day you land on should be your first fertile day.

  • To find your last fertile day, find the longest cycle among all the cycles you've tracked. Subtract eleven from that number of days, and write down the number. Find day one of your current cycle, and use the number you wrote down to count forward that number of days. The day you land on should be your last fertile day.


Make smart decision on when to have sex


      For most women the window technically lasts for about six days: the day of ovulation and the five days before it. Some people prefer to play it safe by avoiding sex for at least a week before they predict ovulation will occur, and several days afterward. Others stop exactly five days before they think they'll ovulate. Once you have enough data at your disposal, the choice is yours to make.

  • You might want to be very cautious at first, as you are getting used to using natural contraceptive methods. Give yourself time to get to know your body before taking risks.
  • After using the  symptothermal  method for six months or a year, you may feel you understand your reproductive cycle very well. You can then narrow the time during which you avoid sex, resting easy that you can rely on your meticulous records.


 Apply other forms of contraceptive if your cracking failed


If you forget to track your temperature while on vacation, or haven't checked your vaginal mucus this month, do not rely on natural contraception to prevent pregnancy until you have at least two or three months' worth of careful records to fall back on again. In the meantime, use condoms or another form of contraception to prevent pregnancy.
