Hi.
Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Sore throat is rarely a symptom of STD. Sore throat can however occur after oral sex but it is rare.

Chlamydia almost never infects the throat.

When gonorrhea is there, it clears up on its own in a few weeks, but of course, antibiotics make it go away faster.

Transmission of oral gonorrhea to a partner's genitals can occur, but is rare.

If you want to be 100% certain about all this, go to your local health department's STD clinic and have a throat culture for gonorrhea.

When there is an STD, there are bound to be other symptoms, an isolated throat infection is almost never present.

--Best wishes--

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
