In brief: Not necessarily

Cefuroxime will inhibit sensitive strains of gonococci, but not touch chlamydia, trichomonas, hiv, and although somewhat effective against syphilis, depending upon the stage of the disease it may not be a good choice.
You should be tested for other causes beyond the illness for which it was prescribed, and be careful. I cannot think of a sexual experience worth dying for.
