Yes -plenty of germs: Doctors can test for Group A Strep -which is only one specific germ that can cause a throat infection (or pharyngitis if you want to be technical).

Signs of a sexual viral or bacterial infection in my throat? Haven't done oral in 2 months but sore throat for a few weeks now? Almost a month? : (
Maybe...: Most likely it is a usual virus that causes sore throats. I have to admit it makes me wonder why you think of an STD as a source first before the more likely usual cold virus. On the other hand, if you are highly sexually active you at a minimum need to be evaluated for the possibility of STD as a pharyngitis source. Perhaps ur dr will treat with antibiotics to "cover" for STD's as a source? ...Read more

Discharge can be normal depending on where you are in your cycle. It is an issue when it has an odor or causes bacterial or vaginal irritation. You did not mention any of these symptoms in your post, which is why I am assuming your doctor said this could be normal. Also typically uti's do not cause vaginal infections, especially when treated. If this problem persists consider asking for additional diagnostic testing.
Best of luck. ...Read more
