Gonorrhea Incubation Period: How long can one go before symptoms present?

broct posted:
I'm well aware that chlamydia and gonorrhea infections may never present with symptoms. My question is, how long could an individual who does present symptoms of gonorrhea have gone between contact with the virus and onset of symptoms?

My partner and I began to see each other in mid-June. Around August 10 he presented with gonorrhea symptoms and was diagnosed and treated. I got tested and didn't have it so he didn't contact it from me.

He said that he hadn't slept with anyone else since right after we first met in mid-late June. I just read, however, that symptoms usually present within a week and maybe 30 days at the latest. His presentation would have been after 30 days. Have I been misinformed? Is there a high likelihood that his assertion that he hadn't slept w/ another since June is a lie? Would I be wrong to bring up the fidelity question again?
