hey...when do the gonorrhea bacteria die when its outside the body?? if you secreted some green fluid on your underwear... few days later.. you wash them... soak it in water for 8-10 hrs.. then with soap for 5 hrs.. rinse then dry them up in the sun.... ironed them...does the bacteria die??? i accidentally didnt notice that there was still a green stain left and i actually wore that underwear while i was still in the last 2 days of taking tablets of doxin when that happened...the opening of my penis kinda got swollen a little bit..after the last tablet i went back to see the doctor... he suggested urinalysis.. and the test result for bacteria is rare...but the opening of my penis didnt look as normal yet as before...im deciding to take 10 tablets for 5 days of doxin w/o the doctors permission...is this a good idea?? i dont want it to get worse again..it will cost a lot more...

thurs- had unprotected sex
sat evening-unusual itchiness on the opening of my penis.. then it became painful after being scratched
sun- white/green substance came out..went to the doctor for testing
mon-got treatment.. injection of ceftriaxon, and 14 tablets of doxycycline for 7 days...
tues- less green discharge, no more pain urinating
sat- accidentaly wore the underwear that still had a green stain
monday - last day of the tablets
tues- the opening of mine was a little swollen..went to the doctor for testing again.. only urinalysis was made
wed-result for urinalysis = bacteria = rare.. the opening was still a little swollen.. i decided to take doxin tablets again..10 tablets for 5 days w/o the doctors permission...currently done with my 2nd tablet...

pls help
