sex during Gonorrhea treatment

Postby scarred » Wed Apr 02, 2008 8:28 am

I was given a shot to treat my gonorrhea and against instuction, only one day after, had sex 5 times over 3 days. This was with the use of a condom so my partner was safe but what are the consequences to me?

There should not be consequences to you and hopefully the condom did the trick for your partner(s) but she(they) should be checked for infection anyway. Incubation period can be up to 14 days so it would be wise for them to be tested in a couple of weeks.
