sore throat after oral sex

May 30, 2013

Hi i performed unprotected cunnilingus 2 days ago. I have now a sore throat and feel like i have a cold. could this be symptom of STI?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

It is possible. Certain STD's such as Chlamydia, Syphilis, and Gonorrhea can be transmitted orally. Of those, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea can cause a sore throat.

You could wait a day or two to see if the sore throat resolves itself. If not, a throat swab can be taken at your doctors or local clinic. They can test the culture to see if you have been infected with an STD.

In health,
