Have sore throat after oral sex. Is oral sex reason for the sore throat?

So... I gave my boyfriend oral sex for the first time the other day. Probably around 3 days later I started noticing my throat felt weird- I thought I was getting a cold. I woke up this morning and it was a lot worse. It isn't a regular sore throat though. Theres this big white thing on my right tonsil, and thats the only thing that hurts. And it only hurts when I swallow. I went to the doctor today when I noticdd it was bothering me more, and he said it was strep. But now that I think of it, could it have anything to do with the oral sex? I've had this happen before and have been sexually active before this relationship.

Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your given history in detail.
In your description yo have mentioned that you have had a sore throat 3 days after having oral sex.
It could be a coincidence. But the other possibility is that you could be having an allergy to penile secretions. As you have said that it has happened a second time, it is possible to be allergic in nature.
Infections can occur after oral sex. Penis has a lot of bacteria and you could get infected. You can try gargling after you are done with the act.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Hi there ~

There are a few Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) that can give you a sore throat when you have oral sex for the first time and your male partner is a carrier. I would have you tested for these and please see a doctor for the right evaluations in terms of labs and investigations. I suggest that you also see a sexologist for safe sexual practices. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
