Gonorrhea Prevention


The most effective way to prevent an STD is to abstain from sex. Other preventive measures include:

  • Always use latex condoms during sexual activity
  • Have sex with only one partner (who has sex only with you)
  • Have regular checkups for sexually transmitted diseases

Some other barrier methods of contraception may provide some protection. Talk to your doctor about your options.
