Throat gonorrhea?

I'm extremely nervous because I just learned that a past sexual partner of mine has gonorrhea. I've performed unprotected oral sex on him 5 months ago and did not experience ANY symptoms at all. About a month ago in july I got a serious throat infection where my tonsils were swollen and painful and it hurt to swallow. I took antibiotics and the pain went away within a few days. However my tonsils remained severely inflamed for 2 weeks. They are still partially inflamed but I can talk and eat properly. I'm not sure if is gonorrhea or not seeing as it took so long to develop. Would the antibiotics that I took take care of major infection? Should I be scared of becoming infertile? Thanks

no no no you shouldn't be scared of being infertile from oral gonorrhea.

And getting oral gonorrhea is pretty hard to get.
