In brief: No
Strep throat is not an std.
But other microbes can be - chlamydia and gonorrhea can be passed on this way. Both you and your consort need to be treated as people with std - simultaneously. See your doctor.

In brief: Gonorrhea?
Having semen hit the back of the throat has the potential to inoculate that area with bacteria.
The main one to come from the penis and produce this may be neisseria gonorrheae (the cause of gonorrhea). Would discuss this with the doctor who is treating your sore throats, and with your sexual partner.

In brief: Unlikely
Strep thoat is not usually an std.
White patches in the throat are more suggestive of virus than strep. The only way to know if it's actually strep throat or not is with a step test. What does the doctor who is giving you the antibiotics say?
