Experiencing gonorrhea of the mouth?

Overview of Gonorrhea of the Mouth

Gonorrhea of the mouth is an STD infection caused by oral sex. Contrary to popular belief, oral sex is not safe sex. Pregnancy may be out of the question, but STDs certainly are not. Gonorrhea of the mouth may be difficult to diagnose since it can be confused with common non-sexually transmitted conditions.

Symptoms of gonorrhea of the mouth include a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes. However, many cases of gonorrhea of the mouth do not have noticeable symptoms. With genital infections, gonorrhea symptoms include an abnormal discharge, pain during sex, burning during urination or ejaculation (in men).

Possible Causes of Gonorrhea of the Mouth

A variety of conditions can cause similar symptoms of gonorrhea of the mouth including the following:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases
    • Gonorrhea
    • Chlamydia, although rare.
  • Strep throat
  • Tonsilitis
  • Flu
  • Common cold
  • Mononucleosis

Diagnosing Gonorrhea of the Mouth

The best way to diagnose gonorrhea of the mouth is through STD testing. When testing for gonorrhea of the mouth is performed through an oral swab. However, in many cases of oral gonorrhea, the patient is also infected genitally since the infection can easily be transferred during sex acts so testing on a genital sample may yield accurate results.

A chlamydia and gonorrhea test is available at a local lab or even in the privacy of your own home with an at-home STD testing kit. When concerned about gonorrhea of the mouth, test for gonorrhea and chlamydia since symptoms are similar.

If you are not at risk for STDs or are experiencing other symptoms, consult your doctor.

Treating Gonorrhea of the Mouth

Gonorrhea of the mouth is treated with antibiotics. Be sure not to engage in any type of sexual activity until both you and your partner have been tested and treated for gonorrhea.

If caused by another bacterial infection, such as strep throat, a doctor will prescribe antibiotics. Other conditions require different treatment. Drinking lots of fluids and taking time to rest can help cure the specific ailment.
