Patient :Hello, I was just diagnosed with gonorrhea because my boyfriend cheated. I really don't know since when I have the infection but I am afraid that I got infected at least 3 years ago (because my boyfriend then had a throat infection which got threated with just the same atibiotics). I NEVER thought about getting checkted because I was just with him (got checked before starting to date him and was clear). I had a discomfort for about two months now in the lower abdomen (no real pain but discomfort) and since I found out, even though he always said he had safe sex I needed to know for sure. I am really concerned about infertility right now, so my question now is how posible is it after having it for years. What can I do to get it checked out?
