Expert Q & A Answers About oral chlamydia

Can I get gonorrhea from giving someone oral sex? What symptoms should I look for?

I’m a 18-year-old female and I’m worried that I might have gonorrhea. About three days ago I had oral sex with a guy (without a condom) and now, since this morning, I have a very sore throat. I’m feverish and achy. He didn’t come in my mouth. Is that the only way to get gonorrhea? Does it sound like I have symptoms of gonorrhea or do I just have the flu?

Could my vaginal discharge have caused my partner’s throat infection after he gave me oral sex?

Since as long as I can remember, I've always had some light, vaginal discharge. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend performed oral sex on me for the first time. A week later, he had a high fever and his doctor diagnosed him with a "throat infection" (not strep). Did my discharge cause this infection and is it an STD?
