Sexually Transmitted Diseases/concerned about oral gonorrhea


A bit more than 2 months ago I have oral to a man whose std status I'm not sure about. That was early January. Now in April, I have had a sore throat and stuffy nose for a week. Going to get a swab test tomorrow. The back of my throat has red bumps on it. Could this be oral gonorrhea? I recently tested negative for all stds through blood and urine tests.


Inflammation in the back of your throat suggests a fungal or bacterial growth consistent with something much less dramatic than gonorrhea! If your blood and urine tests were negative then you don't have the disease. I would be much more worried about strep than gonorrhea, which really sucks! If you want a second opinion than please consult with your primary care provider and let me know your results.
