Oral gonorrhea or clymydia

How common is this? My son had sore throat and viral infection which triggered an asthma attack and his doctor said that there was a virus going around it's possible I may have that, but I performed oral sex about two weeks prior I don't have any cold symptoms but my throat started hurting and it is difficult to swallow food or even just to swallow

Even if you have oral gonorrhea, you wouldn't pass it to your son. (There was a recent study that suggest that French kissing, or kissing with tongue, may transmit it, but it still requires a lot more research to prove it, and I'm assuming you aren't kissing your son with tongue.) Regular, casual contact doesn't transmit gonorrhea.

You should get checked for it - they can test your throat for it - though it's possible you have the same virus your son has.

Hope you both feel better soon!

Thanks, I wasn't referring to kissing my son, lol, I threw that out there because he did just have a virus with cold-like symptoms so I probably have genital focused anxiety and the same virus he has
Lol one never knows here, and lots of people think that a casual kiss (the kind that might pass between a father and son) can transmit oral gonorrhea. I cover all bases, just in case. :)

Yes - I think your diagnosis is accurate. Hope you are both feeling better now.
