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

Awaiting tests, but today I noticed sore throat when I swallow. Performed oral sex on woman 7 days ago and unprotected sex. No other symptoms. If it's oral gonorrhea, does the soreness get worse? What are characteristics of sore throat? Come and go?

Awaiting tests, but today I noticed sore throat when I swallow. Performed oral sex on woman 7 days ago and unprotected sex. No other symptoms. If it's oral gonorrhea, does the soreness get worse? What are characteristics of sore throat? Come and go?

Usually no symptoms: Oral gonorrhea almost always (95% of the time) is asymptomatic, with no sore throat at all. On the infrequent occasions it causes symptoms, they would not come and go. Also, cunnilingus -- oral-vaginal contact -- rarely transmits gonorrhea or other STDs. Most likely your symptoms have nothing to do with that exposure. But see a doctor if symptoms continue or you remain concerned. ...Read more

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

I got diagnosed a week ago with gonorrhea and got treated. My fiance is going to get treated. But right now he is having a sore throat is that a sign?

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

What were results: Of the original "testing"? What were you tested for? You should be tested for all STDS, particularly if oral is is without barrier prophylactic (condom/dental dam). If original tests negative, be sure ALL STD testing was done & consider asking ur partner to receive same. Then discuss safe sex, including oral sex with ur doc! Ur worth it! At the same time, could just be dry throat, but safety 1st! ...Read more

I had protected sex yesterday and today I have a sore throat, head, back and inner thighs, is this a coincidence or could something be wrong with me?

No STD. Exercise?: No STD or other infection can cause symptoms in under a day. Maybe muscle aching due to vigorous sex or new position(s)? Sore throat sometimes can result from vigorously performing oral sex. But if it's an infection, STDs don't cause such symptoms; it sounds like a cold or something similar probably acquired at least a day or two before the sexual exposure. See a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more
