Re-testing +: The most important criteria for effective gonorrhea treatment is for both partners to take their medication at the same time and sequence as well as avoiding sexual contact until re-testing in the form of a gonorrhea culture shows that both parties are negative. There are resistant strains of G.C. brought back from Vietnam by our soldiers that may require a antibiotic change by MD.
