How can getting tested prevent gonorrhea?

ANSWER

Get tested -- and have your sexual partners get tested. Ask them if they’ve been screened for gonorrhea. If they haven’t, have a conversation about getting tested. Knowing if you or your partners have gonorrhea can keep the disease from spreading if you -- and they -- practice safe sex.
