How to Treat Non Gonococcal Urethritis?


Medical Treatment:
  • Non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) is usually treated with an antibiotic course to kill the bacteria that caused the infection
  • Healthcare professionals will give you more advice at the GUM clinic. If your urethritis is caused by gonorrhea, it may be differently treated
  • Treatment with antibiotics may be started before you receive your test results
  • Most people with NGU are prescribed antibiotic tablets or capsules. It may be:
    • Doxycycline (twice a day for 7 days)
    • Azithromycin (just once as a single dose)
  • You should return to the GUM clinic or sexual health clinic if the symptoms of non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) do not get better two weeks after you start to take antibiotics
