Reproductive Health Daily

Repro Health Daily is a social media based sexual health and reproductive health education organization. We operate under the premise that despite some teens and young adults understanding how they can best protect themselves while being sexually active and/or preparing to have a child, the regular reinforcement of these factual messages (the 'daily' in our name!) in a non-threatening, engaging way - via social media sites with their peers - normalizes healthier, safer behaviors.

Repro Health also offers reproductive and sexual health education programs. We are happy to present to classrooms, schools, and organizations. We can train teachers in how to implement them via social media and tailor them to their audience, or offer virtual lesson plans.

Feel free to ask us any questions about reproductive health that you may have. We can post the questions anonymously as well. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter and continue the education and discussions!

In light of our most recent unit on gonorrhea, we thought you guys might like this article!

Now that we’ve talked about symptoms and transmission, it’s good to know what happens in diagnosis and treatment for gonorrhea.

Diagnosis and Treatment

—A doctor or nurse can obtain a sample for testing from the parts of the body likely to be infected (cervix, urethra, rectum, or throat), and in some cases can use urine to test.

—Antibiotics can successfully cure gonorrhea in adolescents and adults.

—However, drug-resistant strains of gonorrhea are increasing in many areas of the world, and successful treatment of gonorrhea is becoming more difficult.

—It is now recommened that two kinds of drugs be used to treatment gonorrhea.

—It is important to take all of the medication prescribed to cure gonorrhea. ¬†Although medication will stop the infection, it will not repair any permanent damage done by the disease.

 

Prevention Reminders!!

—Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, can reduce the risk of transmission of gonorrhea.

—Any genital symptoms such as discharge or burning during urination or unusual sore or rash should be a signal to stop having sex and to see a doctor.
