Gonorrhoea Prevention Singapore

Gonorrhea Prevention in Singapore: Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted illness. It causes pain with urination and other symptoms. It is treatable, but if untreated can lead to sterility.

Prevention/Vaccination

There is currently no vaccine against gonorrhea. However, condoms work well for preventing gonorrhea. Using a condom when having any type of sex, whether vaginal, oral, or anal, will prevent most cases of gonorrhea. While performing oral sex on a woman is a low-risk activity, it can be made safer by using a dental dam, which is a sheet of latex placed over the female genitalia to form a barrier (much like the barrier formed over the penis by a condom).

To completely prevent gonorrhea, one would have to abstain from sex completely, or have sex only within the context of a long-term mutually monogamous relationship.
