Gonorrhea or Strep-Throat?

A few weeks ago, I had a very sore throat a week after performing oral sex on a partner. This sore throat was accompanied by very bad body aches, a low-grade fever, a slightly red sore throat & peeling hands (a symptom usually associated with strep throat). I am extremely susceptible to strep and get it as much as twice a year ever since I was a little girl. To me, this infection seemed to me like strep (I get it often so I know the feeling!) & from what I have read about gonorrhea/chlamidya, the sore throat is very mild with those diseases and not accompanied by other symptoms. After about 3 days, the illness went away & I have felt completely normal ever since. Could this be gonorrhea/chlamidya or could this be a normal throat infection such as strep? Please help! :) Thanks!
