How to Treat Non Gonococcal Urethritis?
- 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
