Brief Answer:
No, it does not happen as rule

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcamagic.

Gonorrhoea does not have 100% infectivity rate and it is not necessary to contract disease after having single time unprotected sex.

To be precise there is just 5 % risk of contracting disease gonorrhoea after having sex with infected person.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to contact me back.
Thanks and regards.
