Symptoms of an oral STD

Can STDs Be Passed on Through Oral Sex?

Yes, it’s possible to catch an STD in your mouth or throat if you have oral sex with someone infected. There won’t always be symptoms, but if any appear, they could include a sore throat (chlamydia), swollen lymph nodes (gonorrhoea) and small sores (syphilis and herpes).

The symptoms that you’ll notice if you catch an STD in this manner will usually be localised to the area infected, meaning they’re completely different to catching the STD in your genitals. In this article we take a look at the potential symptoms of an oral STD.
