My throat has been dry and a bit sore for 2 weeks. Slight blood in the mornings. It started after unprotected, rough oral sex. I'm worried I might have caught an std/throat cancer? It's dry/bit sore.

Don't worry about throat cancer which is extremely unlikely in a woman your age. It is most likely related to the sex, but even very rough oral sex should not cause soreness that lasts for 2 weeks. Get checked, get treatment if needed, feel safe, protect yourself in the future. ...Read more

But only if the other person had an std at the time of sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably no STI: Sore throat is rarely due to STI; it's more likely you just have a cold virus. Gonorrhea is the most common STI that can do this, but most oral gonorrhea causes no symptoms at all.
