In brief: Yes

After invading the female genital tract, gonorrhea can infect the sensitive lining of the fallopian tubes.
These tubes are the pathway where the egg journeys to the uterus to implant for a pregnancy. Conception often occurs mid tube, with implantation in the uterus a later event. If gc has scarred parts of the tube, a fertalized egg may get stuck in the tube.
