See below: Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (std) caused by a bacterium. People get gonorrhea by having sex with someone who has the disease. “having sex” means anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Gonorrhea can still be transmitted via fluids even if a man does not ejaculate. Gonorrhea can also be spread from an untreated mother to her baby during childbirth.
