Hello and thanks for your question.
The very first thing to do is to return to your health care provider for an evaluation and testing. Repeat urine tests would determine if you have recurrent or persistent gonorrhea (GC) or other sexually transmitted infection. For example, depending on what antibiotic you were given, it's possible that your GC was antibiotic resistant; alternatively, there could be a second diagnosis.
Be well, BY
