    How can I avoid getting gonorrhea?

    Abstinence from both genital and oral sex is the only way to be 100% sure that you are protected from gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted infections.

    If you are sexually active, you can lower your risk of gonorrhea and other STDs by following these guidelines:

    • Use a female or male condom every time
    • Have routine checkups for sexually transmitted infections - discuss the frequency with your doc;
    • Aside from total abstinence, a monogamous sexual relationship with a known healthy partner is the best way of avoiding this and all other sexually-transmitted diseases;
    • Condoms remain the best and most reliable protection against this and other sexually-transmitted diseases for sexually active people. Condoms should be used consistently and correctly when any sexual behavior falls outside abstinence or monogamy with a healthy partner. Consider using a condom or dental dam for oral sex, particularly if the risks are unknown;
    • Limit your number of partners. Your risk of acquiring gonorrhea and other STD's increases as your number of partners increases;
    • Regular check-ups. STD testing should be part of your regular exam. Do not wait for symptoms to appear. You should see your health care provider regularly if you or your partner have other sexual contacts.

    Do not become sexually intimate when drinking alcohol or using other drugs. Drugs reduce your ability to make sensible decisions.
