How is gonorrhea transmitted?

Dr Louisa Draper

"The best way to protect yourself is to use a condom every time you have sex and to avoid unprotected sex until both you and your partner have tested negative for STIs."

Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection which is transmitted during sex. Find out how you can catch it and what you can do to avoid getting infected.

How you can protect yourself:

Use a condom!

You should only have unprotected sex once both you and your partner have tested negative for STIs.

Get tested!

If you have had unprotected sex with a partner who has not recently tested negative, you should get tested. It is generally recommended that sexually active people get checked on a regular basis, at least every six months.

Get treated!

If you test positive for gonorrhea, make sure you get treated without delay. This way you avoid potential complications and protect your partner from catching it.
