Frequently asked questions

What kills oral chlamydia?

Either the immune system or antibiotics will kill oral chlamydia. The immune system may be able to kill the bacteria causing the infection, but it can take several weeks. Antibiotics are the best way to kill oral chlamydia, as they destroy the bacteria's cell wall, making it unable to reproduce or survive.

Can oral gonorrhoea spread to the rest of the body?

Normally, you cannot spread oral gonorrhoea to other parts of your body, as your antibodies will prevent this from happening.

What antibiotics treat oral chlamydia and gonorrhoea?

Oral chlamydia is usually treated with doxycycline. Oral gonorrhoea is usually treated with an antibiotic injection, such as ceftriaxone.

Both infections can also be treated with azithromycin, but this is less common as bacteria are becoming more resistant to it. Only certain antibiotics are used to treat oral chlamydia and gonorrhoea to prevent the risk of further antibiotic resistance.

Can I kiss if I have oral chlamydia and gonorrhoea?

Oral chlamydia has not been found to be transmitted through kissing, but oral gonorrhoea might, although this is rare. It’s best to avoid kissing if you have an oral STI until you’ve had treatment and are no longer infectious.

Your doctor will let you know when you can resume sexual activity after treatment and whether you’ll need to take another test.

Can a blood test detect oral gonorrhoea or chlamydia?

As oral chlamydia and gonorrhoea are caused by bacteria on the surface of the body, they aren’t tested for using blood tests. A swab of the infected area is the most accurate way to test.
