Which partners should I avoid to prevent gonorrhea?

ANSWER

Don't have sex with someone who has symptoms of gonorrhea. Has your partner complained of a burning feeling while peeing or sores in the genital area? Take a break from sexual activity until he or she gets checked out. You should get checked, too.
