Answer

See the list below:

  • Instruct the patient to refrain from intercourse until all partners are treated.

  • Educate the patient about always using barrier devices when engaging in intercourse with multiple partners.

  • Inform patients that infections can spread by orogenital or genitoanal intercourse, even in the absence of penovaginal intercourse.

  • If symptoms persist or recur after treatment, patients should be instructed to return for re-evaluation
