I engaged in both oral and vaginal sex and have a sore throat and yellow tongue. safe to say no genital symptoms means it's not oral gonorrhea?

Can't be sure: The only way to be sure if this is gonorrhea is being tested. You could be exposed in more than one area and only be symptomatic in one. If you suspect any std, your partner should be evaluated/treated as well. Good luck!
