What can cause almost immediate sore throat (within an hour) after performing oral sex on female?

Sore Throat: There are a lot of reasons we have temporary sore throats. We can have eaten something that irritated us; we can be a bit dehydrated; we can be all worked up with adrenaline and other hormones when we are sexual and can experience a drying of the throat. Infections, which I assume you are most worried about do not become symptomatic within any close time frame of just one hour. ...Read more

I have a sore throat a day after performing oral sex. Can an STD cause a sore throat within one day? I'm scared to get tested.

I have a sore throat a day after performing oral sex. Can an STD cause a sore throat within one day? I'm scared to get tested.

Probably not an STD: One day is too soon for an STD or any other infection to cause symptoms, and most oral/throat STDs don't cause sore throat anyway. This is pretty common after oral sex. Maybe minor trauma if the exposure was vigorous and deep, but for the most part the cause is unknown and should clear up in a day or two. If not, see a doctor. You know it's silly to avoid testing for fear of the result! ...Read more
