Well in that case, you will have to completely abstain from sexual intercourse with your partner, until she gets treated. Once cured, you both should follow these general guidelines to reduce the risk of STDs: • Maintain a long-term relationship with just one sexual partner. • Avoid new and multiple sexual partners. • Practice safe sex using condoms, dental dams and other protections. • Go for regular tests and screenings for a timely detection of infections, if any. Remember that your risk of gonorrhea increases if you have been afflicted before, you have been afflicted before with any other STD and when you are young.
