What is Gonorrhea? | Symptoms, Diagnosis, Preventing & Treatment

Risk of infection:

One of the most common questions regarding gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is what is your likelihood of catching them. In general, gonorrhea has a higher risk of communicability the more times unprotected sex is had with an infected person. In addition, female to male transmission is significantly less than male-to-female transmission. This is thanks to the large surface area of the vagina which is more common to receive the bacteria than that of the penis. The same can be applied to homosexual male relationships where the receptive partner is more likely to be infected.
