Swollen Tonsils
I gave oral sex about four days ago. Today I've noticed that my tonsils are red, swollen, and filled with pus. It's a little uncomfortable to swallow. Is there a possibility that giving oral sex could cause this to be an STI or STD?

Hi there,
Any bacterial or viral infection of the tonsil can cause tonsillitis. The incubation period between picking up the infection and the disease breaking out is two to four days – sometimes it can be less.Neisseria gonorrhea can cause pharyngitis and is common in those who engage in orogenital sex.Syphillis can also cause tonsillitis. Chlamydia trachomatis can also be transmitted through oral sex and can cause tonsillitis. A clinical examination and throat swab may be helpful in detecting the cause. Seek the opinion of a primary care physician. Hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
