should I get another throat swab or would it be a waste of time?

Hi a few months back I started getting a burning in my throat, this was a little after I had given a girl oral sex, I went to a gum clinic 2 weeks after, they took a swab and it come back as nothing wrong, I still have a bit of a burning although it's gone a lot now, would another swab be of benefit or may they not have been able to detect everything 2 weeks after it started the first time?

2 weeks is enough time for an std to be detected, so this is unlikley to be the cause of your problems James. Best to visit a doctor and he con have a better look to whats going on with you.

Thank you for your reply, a doctor had told me he thinks its acid related, i was just worried that maybe it had been misdiagnosed and that it maybe something else causing it.

Im happy knowing that std's would have been detected 2 weeks after.

the burning in my throat actually started about 2 days after i had given oral sex.
