I have a gonorrhea in throat. Can this be lead in HIV? How can I cure this disease just in house? What is the causes why i have this disease?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Gonorrhea by itself will not cause HIV, but being infected with it can increase the likelihood of HIV transmission, although orally the risk is still extremely low. You must go to the doctor to get treated for it. Infection occurs via oral/genital or oral/anal contact, but typically via oral/penile contact.

In health,
