Hi
Gonorrhea,as you know,is sexually transmitted.
But using barrier protection,male or female condom,will protect against transmission.
Also if you have been under treatment its possible that you viral load had reduced significantly.

hello,
since you both not used condom, so there is chance that his body fluid may came contact with you.so chances are there to get it.

hello,

it mainly transmitted by sexual intercourse or contact with sexual fluids from infected individuals . Rarely, kissing or the use of soiled towels can also be the route of spread. it cannot be caught by casual contact.get treated by consulting a dr.

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks
