Brief Answer:
Oral sex can lead to sore throat

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

To answer your question directly oral sex has the potential to cause sore throat. Unlikely from a single encounter which was a month back. Are you sure you did not indulge in any other sexual practices (not necessarily oral) since a month?

Let me tell you that sore throat can be from different other reasons as well. Start on Listerine mouth gargles.
Suppose the sore throat is accompanied by fever, body pain, fatigue etc please see a local doctor for thorough check up.

Have a good health.
