Patient : I just got diagnosed with gonorrhea. I have not had any sexual relations with anyone but my husband for 15 years. He denies any other relations as well, and i believe this to be true. I recently had an eye infection that took 3 prescriptions to clear up. Is it possible that I may have picked up the gonorrhea infection in my eye first, then transfered it to the genitals? I work in a pharmacy and am always getting new bugs from customers, and handling their prescriptions and money.
