I'm 18 and I've never had intercourse however my boyfriend has had intercourse once (2 years ago with someone else). We have performed oral sex on each other but have not had intercourse. We don't use a condom for oral sex. Ever since I've been with him I've noticed that after I perform oral sex on him a couple of days later I get a sore throat. He is the first guy that I have given oral sex to however so I don't know if it's just my technique or an STI or something?
Please reply back as I'm quite concerned about this.
Sore thorat can be due to various reasons as infection,cold and flu,allergy etc and the most common cause is viral infection.But if the symptoms are present after oral intercouse then it could be indicative of any sexually transmitted disease as Pharyngeal Gonorrhoea,Chlamydia etc.
Kindly visit a Primary Physician for evaluation and avoid having oral intercourse until the diagnosis is confirmed.
