I stupidly had oral sex (first tiime) with another male yesterday and am very worried I could have caught an STD has my throat is dry and sore. The guy I was with says he gets tested regularly but I don't know for sure. He did not come in my mouth and he did not have oral with me. Worst part is I am married which makes it all worse, how long should I wait to get tested and what for?
So you gave oral sex, well you can get gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis. Oral STD's are not common and most of the time if you get gonorrhea you do not show any symptoms. And a sore throat the next day would be too soon for a symptom.
You can test 1 week post exposure with a throat swab for gonorrhea, 6 weeks for syphilis and 4 months for herpes (herpes and syphilis is a blood test).
