Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

Well,if she performed unprotected oral sex on you there are chances of contracting herpes,syphilis,HIV,HPV,gonorrhea,chlamydia etc.

Most of these have different incubation periods and may manifest over time.
If you have any symptoms like lesions,itching,pustules etc in or around the oral cavity in the next few weeks then you need to see a your physician for testing immediately.Even if there are no symptoms,you can be tested after 4-6 weeks of exposure.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them,

Regards,
