In brief: Several days.

Gonorrhea is easily treated with a single dose of the following antibiotics: cefixime, ceftriaxone, cephalosporin.
Gonorrhea can take several days for symptoms to disappear. If symptoms don't go away after treatment, you should see your doctor for re-evaluation.You should avoid all sexual activity until your body is free from infection. Have your partner tested & treated to avoid reinfection.
