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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Gonorrhea: It can be spread by saliva so the answer to your question is yes
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.
Yes: 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.
STD: Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection. It can commonly present with genital, rectal or oral symptoms. In the throat it typically cause a severe exudate in the back of the throat or tonsil area. If left untreated it may cause disseminated symptoms.
STD of throat: Yes, both of these can infect the throat. You can have a coating or discharge looking infection in the back of the throat. Get a culture to know for sure
Gonrrhea: I would assume you can pass it that way be careful
Does gonorrhea look just like tonsillitis or any other throat sickness? What are the differences between gonorrhea and tonsillitis?
Not usually.: Gonorrhea of the throat often produces a mild sore throat very similar to other minor viral illnesses. The symptoms generally fade over a week. Strep throat and mono usually cause a very sore throat and change in voice oftentimes with systemic illness (fever, chills, muscle ache, headache, etc.).
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.
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?
