swollen tonsils and oral sex?

does anyone get swollen tonsils or sore throat after performing oral sex?

i did this 2 days ago and i am starting to feel sick. im around children who are also sick so it could possibly be a coincidence...BUT this used to happen to me years ago.

is there a reason for it? is it an std?

Re: swollen tonsils and oral sex?

Yes, it is possible. You may have thrush. Yogurt takes care of thrush, get plain if you can stand it as it will help the best/fastest. I would use plain, with the least sugar in it as possible and maybe blend in some blueberries or something fresh that you like to help with flavor. That should help you out a lot.

added: I forgot to ask you how you are doing now, since your original post was awhile ago. Did you go to the doctor? Please let me know how you are. Hope you are having a good day......G

Re: swollen tonsils and oral sex?

i dont think i had thrush. although i never heard about it before!

my little niece and nephew were sick and i think i got sick from them. i think THIS time it was coincidence.


BUT yes, i used to get a bacterial like infection in my throat when i would perform oral sex on my ex. why does this happen??? and why is it called thrush? is that a relatively new term i've never heard it before!

Re: swollen tonsils and oral sex?

Hello Calidreaming, I was only speculating that it could be thrush. You can easily search the web for definitions, I understand that some babies get it, it is a yeast infection in the mouth and yogurt cures it. My daughter had it and all I used was yogurt and that was about 22 1/2 years ago. There are other possibilities though. Have you ever asked a doctor about this or even called up a clinic that handles STD's just to get their input or search the web or these boards? You just put in a few key words and search, it is really easy. How long ago did this happen with your ex? Do you have a current bf? I wonder if it was just something with him. There are a lot of possibilities. I hope you have a good day and I'll talk to you later......G
