painful. If women consulted a physician as soon as they noticed any of 

the symptoms referred to above, they would save months and years of 

suffering and expense, because the disease would often be taken in 

hand while still limited to the cervix, and not, as is now often the 

case, after the inflammation has extended into the uterus and 

Fallopian tubes. 

 

=Self-treatment.= I do not believe in self-treatment because it is 

generally unsatisfactory and may often even become dangerous, and I 

decidedly advise every woman who suspects that she has contracted 

gonorrhea to apply at once to a competent physician. But it happens 

not infrequently that a woman is so situated that she cannot consult a 

physician. And in the meantime there is danger of the gonorrhea 

spreading further and further. In such cases it is advisable for the 

woman to use an injection until such time when she can consult a 

physician. The injection I am going to advise may in itself produce a 

cure; and, if it does not produce a complete cure, it at any rate 

improves the condition, prevents the extension of the disease, makes 

subsequent treatment easier, and besides is perfectly harmless. The 

best injection for self use in gonorrhea is tincture of iodine; the 

proportion is two teaspoonfuls to a quart or two quarts of water. If 

the case is very bad, such an injection may be taken twice a day. If 

the case is not very bad, once a day is sufficient. After using the 

tincture of iodine for five days to a week, it is good to change off 

to lactic acid. Buy a pint or so of lactic acid in a drug store, and 

use one tablespoonful to a quart of water. It is preferable to have 

the water hot, about 100 deg., but where this is inconvenient it may 

be used lukewarm. The lactic acid injection is used for three days, 

then the iodine injection is resumed, then again the lactic acid, and 

so on. I know of many cases that were cured by this treatment alone. 

And I might mention that these injections are generally also very 

efficient in leucorrhea, as stated in the chapter on Leucorrhea.

The mucous membrane, or the lining of the vulva and vagina, in little 

girls is very tender, and therefore very readily subject to infection. 

An infection of the vulva and vagina due to the gonococcus or to some 

other germ is very common in little girls. At least it used to be, 

particularly among children of the poor, in institutions and
