Preventing gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases:
Sexually transmitted diseases can be severe and have long-life complications, and while gonorrhea is usually easily curable, neglected cases can develop complicated medical conditions like infertility and pelvic inflammatory diseases. It is easy to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases through practicing safe sex. The use of condoms is not only limited to contraception and, contrary to popular belief, you still need to wear or ask your partner to wear a condom even when there is another effective contraception like pills.
You should also tell your recent sexual partners when you are infected. This will help prevent spread of communicable diseases and can help them receive early treatment, preventing complications.
