Symptoms Of Gonorrhea Of The Throat
If you suspect it: You need a throat culture with "chocolate agar", because one cannot tell clinically if it's gc or any other sore throat cause (virus or bacteria), but you need to know precisely so that the treatment is correct - routine oran ab's may not do the trick. It's embarassaing, but letting it get worse can lead to systemic spread to joints, meninges, so find out. ...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?
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 are not from any infection from that exposure. But see a doctor if symptoms continue or you remain concerned. ...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?
Two bad ideas: Gonorrhea of the throat is very common and a person owes it both to himself/herself and anybody else who's special to be treated at once. A kiss that's more than a peck can transmit the infection, and I suspect that it's often missed by physicians since there's no history of "oral sex". Love's beautiful and all really good lovers are responsible. ...Read more
What happens if I have gonorrhea of the throat (looks a lot like strep which I tested negative for), how long would that typically last without treatment?
Can you tell me if I have gonorrhea of the throat (looks a lot like strep which I tested negative for), how long would that typically last without treatment?
A long time: It can last for weeks or even months. Especially, it can hang around without symptoms and make other people sick. It sounds like you might do well to go back to your physician and ask for a culture on Thayer-Martin media. ...Read more
Men and women may exhibit gonococcal infection of the pharynx. Gonococcal pharyngitis is most commonly acquired during orogenital contact, with fellatio predisposing to infection more so than cunnilingus. Pharyngitis is often asymptomatic; however, it may present as exudative pharyngitis with cervical lymphadenopathy.
Throat infections may be more challenging to eradicate. You will need treatmen. ...Read more

When I perform oral sex on him my throat hurts pretty bad for the next couple of days, could this be gonorrhea?
My roommate has gonorrhea. Now my throat hurts. Can I get it if he doesn't wash his hands after using the restroom or something similar?
No risk of gonorrhea: Room-mate has hopefully been treated with antibiotics. Also hope that all room-mate's sexual contacts have been alerted & treated. Encourage this, if hasn't been done yet. You will not catch it from toilet seat or door handles. Throat infection only possible if U had oral sex with him. However, room-mate should always wash his hands after restroom use, as should you. ...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?
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've notice d red bumps on back wall of throat. I've had a sore throat since Friday. Afraid about oral gonorrhea. Red bumps. Could it be?
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 infection when you had relations & if exposure to semen was mouth or eye then, it's possible to have been infected in those areas. I'm skeptical with the symptoms you pose & time since exposure should be considered. Still, gonococcal pharyngitis happens. Not hard to verify. More questions? Write me @: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi ...Read more

Can people have gonorrhea or chlamydia in their throats from oral sex? Is this dangerous if you don't know? If a cut in mouth is it in your blood?
Yes you can: Gonorrhea and chlamydia can cause oropharyngeal or throat infections from "oral sex".
