Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,Gonorrhea can easily be contracted from an infected partner and men, in most cases, would begin noticing the symptoms of this infection soon. Basically, a sexually transmitted disease like this couldn’t go undetected for more than a few weeks of contracting the infection.

There is no gonorrhea test that is 100% accurate, so it's hard to be very sure.

Because whoever tested him did not actually collect the gonorrhea - testing in a Male usually shows negative tests for gonorrhea while their partners have positive tests. This is because of you have to put the swab all the way to the penis deep into the penis and so many people when they test do Not do that.

So he does have gonorrhea even though he was tested negative - so He should be treated for gonorrhea as well as you - and since you have a positive test for Gonorrhea - you should be treated for it too to prevent back & froth infection and transmission to other partner and recurrence.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Should he get retested?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 8 months ago

No need now.

However he needs to get treatment at the same time along with you to prevent back & froth infection and transmission and recurrence.

Hope this helps.
