I tested negative for gonorrhea and I'm having a sore throat every morning and eye pain in both. Is it possible it can be in my throat & eyes?
Gonorrhea can live..: Gonorrhea can live anywhere it contacts. If partner is or was positive for infection when you had relations & if exposure to semen was mouth or eye then, it's possible to have been infected in those areas.
