I gave oral sex few times (to my husband).Didnt get the vaccine. I worry I have high risk oral HPV 16.I have bad teeth. Afraid oral HPV wil turn cancer?

However, other STDs are possible, especially gonorrhea. "Neg for strep" suggest you saw a doctor for testing. If you didn't have throat culture for gonorrhea, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
