I gave my boyfriend unprotected oral sex 3 weeks ago. I got tested for oral chlamydia/gonorrhea a week ago and it came back negative. My boyfriend hasn’t been sexually active for 1 year and has had no symptoms, he also got checked and results were negative. However I have now got a sore throat, loss of appetite and excess throat mucus and I am worried I may have an oral Sti?? Could this be the case? I also have a strange lump on the back of my neck towards my upper back?

Hello Anonymous,

No, that is not what I said. You can only get an STD if you have sex (anal, oral, or vaginal) with a person who is infected with or has a STD.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your question.

Sexually transmitted diseases are transmitted from an infected person to a partner via oral, anal and vaginal intercourse. If you know for a fact that your partner is not infected, there is no risk. Otherwise, always use protection because the risk can exist.
