How is gonorrhea treated?

Gonorrhea is treated with antibiotics, the entire course of which should be completed to prevent the infection from returning. To minimize the risk of reinfection, it is important to tell your sexual partner(s) to be diagnosed and seek timely treatment, and to abstain from sex until the course of treatment has been completed.
