A week ago I gave my male partner oral sex (deep throat) for several minutes. He said that he had been tested recently and we then had protected intercourse.
About 4 days later, I came down with a really bad sore throat that lasted 2 days and went away, no other symptoms, although my throat continued to feel puffy. I thought it was allergies because I was out the night before the soreness while it was really cold and raining but I wasn't dressed adequately. I also hadn't been eating or sleeping enough for almost a whole month prior, due to anxiety and depression so my immune system was probably shot.
Now my tonsils are still a bit big and my throat feels weird, not painful, I just feel stuffy in my throat and nose areas. The weather has been crazy so I don't know if it's that.
My question is, should I wait until my throat is no longer puffy or hurting before getting a throat swab for Gonorrhea or Chlamydia? Is it possible that a false positive could come up for one or both of those if I have some sort of other infection or issues in my throat?
