Could this be an STD?

I have had a sore throat feeling in my throat for about the past 2 weeks and it also feels sometimes like my throat is swollen or that there is a lump in my throat. I have performed oral sex on my boyfriend who says he has never had sex before. Could this be an STD ?

It could be, but it could also be strep, allergies, etc.  You should really see your doctor since it hasn't improved in 2 weeks.

Oh and if he's never even had oral sex before, it can't be an std, but you sound as if you aren't sure you believe that.
