- Finish the entire course of antibiotics your doctor prescribes, even if you're feeling fine and symptoms go away.
- Notify any and all sexual partners of infection. They should be treated or tested so the infection is not passed back and forth.
- Be retested if your symptoms continue or you think you have been reinfected. Having the infection once does not confer immunity to repeat infection.
- Use latex condoms during sexual intercourse.
