Strep Throat and Oral Sex

  • My girlfriend and I recently had sex (about 4 days ago). I am faithful in that I have not had sex with anyone other than her. The day after we had sex, she went to the doctor and was told that she has strep throat. This morning I woke up with discharge coming from my penis and it burns when I urinate. Can I catch a disease if she had strep throat when she gave me oral sex?

  • Yes, it's possible - it looks like that's what's happened. The discharge and pain suggest an infected urethra, and you'll need to get to a doctor for a course of antibiotics.

  • I am not a doctor, but strep can be a pretty nasty bug that doesn't live only in the throat. I would suggest you seek medical attention.

  • is there a name for the type of infection that this would cause?

  • An infected urethra is called urethritis.

  • I also gave her oral sex that night. If she had a venirial disease, would I have gotten something in my mouth or throat?

  • It's possible for some diseases to be transmitted that way, though for most it's not a common method of transmission. If you have no symptoms in the mouth or throat there's no point in worrying - or diverting the doctor's attention from the urethritis.

  • thanks, you've been a big help.
