Hi I'd appreciate any advice out there. Six days ago I had unprotected sex with a man who is stranger to me and have now developed a really sore, swollen throat which seems to be getting worse. The symptoms began yesterday ie five days afterwards. Could it be STD related? The sex included fairly shallow vaginal penetration (twice) plus some fairly limited oral sex (my tongue on his penis but I didn't take him fully into my mouth). I have also been sneezing, and am prone to sore throats anyway, so my 'sensible head' tells me this is just a common cold. But there's this nagging doubt, as I know I was really foolish. I'll go to the doctor this week but in the meantime, any thoughts?
