Customer Question
I had oral and vaginal...
I had oral and vaginal sex with a man in January. I recently noticed that my throat looked kind of strange. It does not hurt at all and I have no other symptoms. My friends say not to worry about it. I am currently taking herbs and vitamins to keep up my health. Can you tell me what you think it looks like? I have already went and got std test and everything came back normal. However, they didn't swab my throat.

Can you send pictures of your throat?

Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I have not gotten any pictures from you, but with negative STD testing, even though your throat was not swabbed, the cause is not a sexually transmitted infection. Do you smoke or have allergies? If you are a smoker and your throat looks lacey white you may have leukoplakia. Other causes could be postnasal drainage Your doctor would be the best to evaluate your throat. I am here to answer any additional questions. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars, this is how I am credited for my response. Thank you.

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.
