I'm a 21 year old female, and have recently given up my virginity to my boyfriend of a few years, who was also a virgin until recently. Before we decided to go the whole way, we would have occasional oral sex. Everything was fine, no irritation, nothing I had to be concerned of. A week or so ago, my boyfriend and I had sex for the fourth time in a two month time period. I performed oral without 'finishing the job' so to speak, but tried attempting deep-throat which I couldn't as it affected my gag reflex and caused discomfort. Now, I have light sore throat symptoms without it progressing and becoming a cold. As I recall, nothing seemed out of the ordinary, there wasn't anything visually off about him or his jinx, nor had he complained he had difficulty urinating or anything like that. Also, before we had met up a week ago, I had just recovered from a nasty sore throat + cold, so I still had some mucus trapped in my chest.
I've read on here from a doctor's response about gonorrhea of the throat, and how it's difficult to transmit and that the person's throat pains were more than likely coincidental, and in a case like mine the person didn't finish the oral performance either. I'm just concerned, is this something to be worried about?
