Yes: You develop no immunity to this germ. You can get it every time you are exposed. You can develop symptoms according to which body part may be exposed.

Sure: Absolutely. Depends on your sexual habits. If treated each time, you will not get a recurrence of your own gc, but can easily get reinfected by partners. That's why we recommend that both partners are treated for stds.

Quite possible: Gonorrhea can be transmitted via oral sex. If your partner wears a condom during the act, it cuts down the likelihood immensely.
