Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr.... here
User :   Is my gf at risk of an STD after giving me head(oral sex) especially when she is experiencing a mildy painful sore throat which is on and off and recently a sudden outbreak on her lips?
Doctor :   Let me read it
User :   OK.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   the chance of her contracting a throat infection
Doctor :   is possible
Doctor :   or an allergic reaction as well
User :   oh ok so that means that there is nothing particularly wrong with her in terms of STD's?
Doctor :   not STDs, but the infection is transmitted by sex
Doctor :   which can be easily treated with antibiotics
Doctor :   not a problematic STD
User :   but why would there be chances of her contracting a throat infection
User :   So it's likely it's an STD right?
Doctor :   I cannot give a diagnosis
Doctor :   without examining the patient
Doctor :   I can give the possible cause
Doctor :   terming it as STD wont be right, I guess
User :   OK so what is the possible cause then?
Doctor :   a bacteria which is present in your genitals
Doctor :   on entering her throat
Doctor :   shall produce a reaction
User :   oh ok does that mean that i have an std or something?what bacteria?
User :   not forgetting we had sex too but with a condom though
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   then the next possibility is her allergy to the condom material
Doctor :   that is the next likely cause
Doctor :   the bacteria on the genitals can settle on the condom
Doctor :   while the act of wearing it or later
Doctor :   due to contact with other parts
User :   Oh ok
User :   so does that mean I need to get myself checked for this bacteria?
Doctor :   not at all
Doctor :   the bacteria in the genitals is normal for you
Doctor :   but her throat cannot accept it
Doctor :   hope you understand
User :   yes i do understand.
User :   oh ok thank you very much.
Doctor :   thanks for consulting, bye for now
User :   bye
