I am writing this beacuse I am worried that I might have an oral gonorrhea infection. The risk situation occurred about four weeks ago when I had very brief unprotected oral sex with a european sex worker. I performed cunnilungus on the girl for about 30 seconds. The cunnilungus was shallow and the girl had just had a shower so I don't think there were any vaginal fluids involved. We also did some (rather deep) french kissing.
I know putting me in this situation is very stupid and I fell heavily burdened with guilt.
About a week after the situation I experienced a very sore throat. Because of my current situation I have not been able to test myself for gonorrhea ( however I just today tested negative for HIV, which I know is a bit early but at least indicational). Even though I havn't tested I have been taking some antibiotics. And yes - I know self medication isn't to be recommended - but at the time I felt I had no choice.
The first week after the situation I took a dose of ciproflaxin (500mg) twice daily for seven days. After that week I took one single dose of azitromax of 1500mg. Still feeling a sore throat a week later I took a single dose of cefixime 400mg combined with azitromax 1000mg. After this the sore thorat cleared up.
However I am still feeling a bit strange in the pharynx - a bit like a cold with some mucus/slime, nasal congestion and a very slight discomfort. I am not having a sore throat.
1. Might this be oral gonorrhea?
2. Did the encounter described above pose high risk for oral gonorrhea?
3. Is it likely that the medication I have been taking should have cured a possible infection?
I know all of this might sound like I am totally crazy, but I really need your advice. Thanks for your help!
