Gonorrhea Dilemma


Q: When I went in for my first prenatal visit, I was of course tested for any and all STDs. I recieved a call the following week informing me I tested positive for gonorrhea. I informed my boyfriend and he had no problem with being tested so we can both be clean. We continued to have unprotected sex until I recieved treatment, which was an injection I cannot pronounce or spell and azithromyocin. Then we ceased sex. Now here's the nerve wrecking issue. I accompanied him to a free clinic where he recievedSTD testing via urine sample. A week later, he called for hus results as instructed and she said she would call him back. She never did that day so he followed up with her the next day. She then told him immediately that his testing came back negative for everything and he needed to not worry. She told him that it was very well possible for one partner to have gonorrhea and the other to not. We have been together a total of 8 months only the last four being monogomous. I had been using protection with the other guy. The last time the other guy and I were intimate I did not self lubricate well and he decided to remove the condom without my consent. I imediately ended our session. Must have been perfect timing because he ejaculated as soon as he removed his penis and ejaculated on my back instead of inside me. I don't know all the details of my boyfriends sex loo ife during our first four months together exceot there were two other women and one of the two he could kot trust. So,...my question is this... ...how soon can a person catch gonorrhea after the first exposure and why did my boyfriends test come back negative when mine was positive? Niether of us trust the results he was given and do jot plan to return to that clinic for further testing. We both agree another form of testing is needed for accuracy.

Symptoms:  No symptoms for me or my boyfriend.
