Brief Answer: Yes. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. Inoflox (norfloxacin) is used to treat bacterial infections of the prostate and urinary tract. It also treats gonorrhea. In case of a suspected gonorrhea infection you can take the drug twice daily for 5 days. You may have nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, lightheadedness, muscle and joint aches, or headache after taking it. Do not combine it with any other drug use. Do consult your physician for stronger prescription medicines in case the symptoms persist. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal. For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Rakhi-Tayal

Brief Answer: Can be due to oral sex. Detailed Answer: Gonorrhea can survive in the eye, rectum, mouth, penis, throat, or vagina. This means that it can be transmitted through any variety of sexual contact. Anal sex is a more common mode of transmission than oral sex. Regards.
