4 days ago I gave oral sex to a woman that I do not know. Now I have a cough, runny nose and itchy throat. Is it a possibility that I have an STD? Or is this just a general case of typical spring time allergies?
As you suggest yourself, your symptoms probably are due to a garden-variety cold or allergies, not sexually acquired. Undoubtedly the onset is merely a coincidence with your exposure; or, if you also kissed her, perhaps you caught a cold from her the old fashioned way.
See numerous other threads in the past couple of months about the low risk of STD transmission by oral-genital sex, especially cunnilingus.
