Suffering from swollen tonsils.

I have been sexually active with a new partner for the past month or so. A couple days after me giving him oral i noticed my tonsils were very swollen but they didnt hurt that much. They have really only bothered me once or twice since they first became swollen so I never visited the doctor. They are still very swollen to this day, is it possible it is an STD?

Infection is the cause and you know the reason. So from next time you need to be careful while doing it. Also did you drink any secretions because that increases the risk of infectivity. Whatever it is the treatment for now is with the help of antibiotics.
