NHS Choices - Preventing gonorrhoea
Gonorrhoea and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be successfully prevented by using contraception effectively and taking other precautions.
For example, by:
- using condoms (male or female) every time you have vaginal or anal sex
- using a condom to cover the penis, or latex or plastic square (dam) to cover the female genitals if you have oral sex
- not sharing sex toys
If you do share sex toys, wash them and cover them with a new condom before anyone else uses them.
Find your nearest sexual health clinic by searching by postcode or town.
