Gonorrhea (Definition)

I had oral sex for the first time with a very experienced guy and now I have a sore throat could I have gonorrhea?

I had oral sex for the first time with a very experienced guy and now I have a sore throat could I have gonorrhea?

Probably not : I assume it was fairly recent and gonorrhea would not show up immediately. Most likely you have traumatized your throat. You should be more in control of depth and speed and not let the guy force you or be rough. Gargle with warm salt water and avoid additional trauma and if your throat does not feel better in a few days than see a doctor. Also, you should be tested for stds on a regular basis. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

Possibly: Gonorrhea can unfortunately also be in the throat if your partner also performed oral sex as well on you. He might want to have throat cultured to be sure but he should definitely be treated as well. ...Read more

Yes : you may have made your own diagnosis. The way to confirm or rule it out is to get a swab culture, and this is a doctor's office. There are Public Health Service stations and community clinics that can deal with this efficiently. ...Read more

I tested negative for gonorrhea and I'm having a sore throat every morning and eye pain in both. Is it possible it can be in my throat & eyes?

I tested negative for gonorrhea and I'm having a sore throat every morning and eye pain in both. Is it possible it can be in my throat & eyes?

Gonorrhea can live..: ....anywhere it contacts. If partner is or was positive for gonorrhea at the time you had relations with him and if your exposure to his semen was orally or ocularly then, it is possible to have been infected. I'm skeptical with the symptoms you pose. and time since exposure should be a factor here. Not hard to verify though. More questions? Write me @: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read more

Allergy?: Such a long lasting problem, with all those negative tests, probably is more likely to be an allergy of some sort, rather than infection. Discuss that possibility with your doctor; or perhaps ask for referral to an otolaryngologist (ENT). Good luck. ...Read more
