User :   I have an std question. Friday night I gave a guy oral sex but did not get his semen in my mouth, Sunday morning I woke up with swollen red tonsils, (only the left one is red and hurts when I swallow) no other symptoms and no general sore throat only the tonsil hurts... could these be symptoms of gonorrhea or any other std showing up that soon? Thank you.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello
Doctor :   let me read
Doctor :   it might be a ordinary infection of the tonsil also as you have only tonsil not the throat infection
User :   ok thank you, i will get tested anyway, but at least this puts me at some ease..
Doctor :   yes testing is the only way to differentiate and to specifically say which organism is responsible for the tonsillitis
User :   ok thanks
