Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD), is spread through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus of an infected individual. Ejaculation does not have to occur for gonorrhea to be transmitted or acquired. Gonorrhea can also be spread from mother to baby during delivery. I recommend her to comply with her antibiotic treatment and I suggest you to get tested too to rule out this disease since in men symptoms may take up to a month to appear.
