Gonorrhea: DSTD (Excerpt)

How can gonorrhea be prevented?

Use latex condoms correctly every time you have sex .

Persons who choose to engage in sexual behaviors that can place them at risk for STDs should use latex condoms every time they have sex. A condom put on the penis before starting sex and worn until the penis is withdrawn can help protect both the male and the female partner from gonorrhea. When a male condom cannot be used appropriately, sex partners should consider using a female condom.

Condoms do not provide complete protection from all STDs. Sores and lesions of other STDs on infected men and women may be present in areas not covered by the condom, resulting in transmission of infection to another person.

Limit the number of sex partners, and do not go back and forth between partners .

Practice sexual abstinence, or limit sexual contact to one uninfected partner .

If you think you are infected, avoid sexual contact and see a health care provider immediately.

Any genital symptoms such as discharge or burning during urination or unusual sore or rash should be a signal to stop having sex and to consult a health care provider immediately. If you are told you have gonorrhea or any other STD and receive treatment, you should notify all of your recent sex partners so that they can see a health care provider and be treated. This will reduce the risk that your partners will develop serious complications from gonorrhea and will reduce your own risk of becoming reinfected. (Source: excerpt from Gonorrhea: DSTD)

Gonorrhea, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)

By using male latex condoms correctly and consistently during vaginal or rectal sexual activity, you can reduce your risk of getting gonorrhea and its complications. (Source: excerpt from Gonorrhea, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

Gonorrhea: NWHIC (Excerpt)

Because gonorrhea is highly contagious and yet may cause no symptoms, all men and women who have sexual contact with more than one partner should be tested regularly for the disease. Using condoms (rubbers) during sexual intercourse is very effective in preventing the spread of infection. Diaphragms may also reduce the risk of transmission. Constant awareness and precautions are necessary because a person who has once contracted the disease does not become immune--many people acquire gonorrhea more than once.
