Preventing Gonorrhea

Preventing Gonorrhea: Talk With Your Partner and Doctor

Talk with your sex partner(s) about STDs and using condoms. It is up to you to make sure that you are protected. Remember, it's your body. Talk frankly with your doctor or nurse, as well as your sex partner(s) about any STDs you or your partner have or had. Talk about any sores or discharge in the genital area, and try not to be embarrassed. Being honest could save your lives.
 

Preventing Gonorrhea: Have Regular Pelvic Exams

Talk with your doctor about how often you need a pelvic exam. Many tests for STDs can be done during an exam. Ask your doctor to test you for gonorrhea and other STDs. The sooner an STD is found, the easier it is to treat.
 

Preventing Gonorrhea: Get Tested

If you are pregnant, get tested for gonorrhea or get tested as soon as you think you may be pregnant.
