Gonorrhea - What Increases Your Risk
Risk factors for getting gonorrhea include:
- Having multiple sex partners (more than one sex partner in the past year).
- Having a high-risk partner (partner has other sex partners, unprotected sex, or gonorrhea-infected sex partners).
- Having unprotected sexual contact (not using condoms).
Any child with gonorrhea needs to be evaluated by a doctor to find out the cause and to assess for possible sexual abuse.
