Strep throat or what?

So I think I have strep throat and it looks like it (white patches on my throat) if I gave my boyfriend oral and just noticed that my throat looked like that what is it? my throat has been hurting for a few days now before I gave him oral... also if we had sex after the fact of me giving him oral will anything happen to my vagina? we had protected sex every time but this one time...I'm very concerned.

Hi, your symptoms may not be related to oral sex. White patches are common in many throat  infections. The sore throat which you had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor. Regards.
