The term is typically reserved to describe urethral inflammation caused by an STD, and the condition is normally categorized into either gonococcal urethritis (GU) or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) (Buttaro, Trybulski, Bailey, & Sandberg, 2016). Education: It is important to refrain from sex for one week after treatment showed results and symptoms resolved. Patient also needs education regarding protected sex to avoid future health issues. Treatment:Antibiotic therapy should cover both gonococcal urethritis and nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). If concomitant treatment for NGU is not provided, the risk of postgonococcal urethritis is approximately 50%. The choice of antibiotics should be based on cost, adverse effects, effectiveness, and compliance. In most situations, optimal treatment is with single-dose therapy administered in the emergency department or the physician’s office. Antibiotics used in the treatment of urethritis include the following: Azithromycin, Ceftriaxone, Cefixime, Ciprofloxacin, Ofloxacin, and Doxycycline (Manhart et al., 2016). Follow-up:return to clinic in 1 weeks for further follow up. References Buttaro, T. M., Trybulski, J. A., Bailey, P. B., & Sandberg, J. (2016). Primary Care. New York, N. Y.: Elsevier.
