Gonorrhea and Z-Pack

I was very sick in December and was prescribed a five day dose of azithromycin in the form of a Z-Pack. I was recently told by someone I had sex with that they tested positive for gonorrhea. I have had no symptoms and it has been over two months now. Is there a possibility that the Z-pack effectively treated the gonohrrea?

That is not the recommended treatement for gonorrhea. But unlikely that you had gonorrhea with no symptoms. But you should test.

Was partner M or F? Oral sex? Protected sex?

Thanks for the response - it was unprotected sex and oral sex with a male. Again, it has been 2 months since the experience and I never had any symptoms, and I still don't, and now I feel fine. But now I keep thinking I have it because it's been put into my head.

Well not only should you do some STD testing but HIV testing also for unprotected anal sex.

USE CONDOMS.
