If swallowing semen caused throat infection does that mean the semen was infected with an STD or is it an intolerance to semen?

In brief: Difficult to know.

Semen containing infectious organisms usually has to hit the back of throat or tonsils in order to initiate infection because salivary enzymes often destroy most organisms, but perhaps not all.
Have seen pharyngeal and tonsillar gonorrhea, syphilitic lesions on tonsils, tongue and buccal mucosa. You should be thoroughly checked for stds including HIV and protect yourself. Doubt semen intolerance.

In brief: STD From Semen

If tour patner has std like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or herpes simplex, then by oral sex you can contact those conditions.
Sterile semen does not cause any infection in throat or oral cavity.
