Avatar n tn After my research on internet, I believe, I got infected by Gonorrhea after receiving unprotected oral sex from my partner who had Tonsil throat infection.

There is another bacteria called Arcanobacterium haemolyticum, that causes pharyngitis (sore throat) and also can become endocarditis. However, you haven't had a culture done. So, I am giving you what I know and it is up to you to decide here.
Avatar m tn Also, before we get to issues raised in your questions, another important point is that HPV is extraordinarily common and for this reason, few, if any major sources of health testing resources recommend routine HPV testing since a positive test really tells little about how long the infection has been present or where it came from.

Avatar f tn Dormant is not the right term to use as the infection would be active. You can't tell how long you have had it. I will say that symptoms show in men about 90+% of the time at about 2-5 days, shows in women about 60+% at that same time frame. So could you have had it for 6 months...yes. But more likely this would be a newer infection but can't say for certain.

Nobody quite understands it yet, and some of it sounds a bit psychological -- he's got depression all of a sudden. He's a body builder for years who is often still out of breath months after "recovery." His wife also had it, and had a milder case, but she now has the hair loss.

Avatar m tn Hi, welcome to the forum, the commonest cause of sore throat or irritation is infection like chronic pharyngitis or chronic tonsillitis. If infection present, you need empirical treatment with a course of broad spectrum antibiotic against prescription. Send blood or throat swab for culture and antibiotic sensitivity. Need to do antiseptic mouth gargle to take care of source of infection.
Avatar f tn If your not sure how you got infected can the doctor tell you how long you've had hepc?
Avatar m tn An oral infection is an oral infection. A genital infection is a genital infection. One does not result because of the other. It has to be transmitted to that particular area from direct exposure. Oral std's are tested the same way as tonsillitis or strep in a throat culture. No, an oral std would not show if tested by urine. And it is not that likely to get an std from oral sex in general. Possible, but with no specific time frame.

Avatar f tn Are you asking how long a UTI can last for? It cannot get better without the help of an antibiotic from your doctor and drinking ALOT of cranberry juice. A UTI can quickly spread to a very painful kidney infection.
Avatar n tn I have had a very unusual sore throat for THREE weeks now. I don't feel bad, I'm not sick. Haven't had a cold, no sinus infection. Nothing. Just a continuous sore throat. Also, it is almost unbearable to yawn because it hurts in my ear so bad. It's my throat majority of the time, but when I yawn it is very painful in my ear. Not both ears at the same time, sometimes just one, but it goes back and forth. I want to know what's causing this.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old daughter has a reoccuring throat infection that requires antibiotics. She took 7 or 8 rounds of it last year and again this year seems to be getting it again. I do not want her to build up antibodies or become allergic to it. I know antibiotics are good here and there, but too much isn't good for you and if I can find a way to help her avoid her throat infections, I'd like to eliminate the need for antibiotics.
