If you're not ready to have sex then you're not ready to have oral sex. Oral sex IS sex and you can get just as many STDs from that as you can having vaginal intercourse.

Serious risks include:

1. Herpes is probably the biggest STD risk during oral sex. Both strains of herpes can live in the mouth or the genitals, and particularly during outbreaks (cold sores, herpes lesions) can be passed from one place to the other. More than 50% of a random group of people will have antibodies to the virus (indicating some level of infection). Genital herpes is complicated and uncomfortable. Herpes can be passed on even if no sores are present.

2. Chlamydia and gonorrhea can infect your throat, showing strep like symptoms. These can also infect the eye; eye infections can have serious consequences. Roughly, 80% of women who have chlamydia have no symptoms and it can prevent them from ever having children.

3. HIV can be passed through unprotected oral sex. The infected semen/precum or vaginal fluid must enter the body through a cut or sore in the mouth or esophagus. You may not even be aware you have a cut in your mouth or throat. Some people take up to 10 years to show that they have contracted HIV/AIDS.

4. HPV can be passed during oral sex. HPV has been found on vocal chords. There is no test to find out if a man has HPV and men usually show no symptoms.

5. Syphilis can be passed similar to HIV. Signs and symptoms are indistinguishable from those of other diseases so some people go a long time without knowing they have it. Mothers can pass this onto their babies without knowing it.

6. Hepatitis A is also a risk, but usually only oral-anal contact. Hep A is not a chronic condition like Hep B and C, but can make a person quite sick several weeks.

Erinn the bamf is right - you can get an STD from giving oral sex, and getting tested is a good idea. However, if you're worried about HIV, you should know that a) it's hard to get from oral sex, and b) it takes more than a few days for symptoms to show up. So I wouldn't worry about HIV so much, but gonorrhea, chlamydia or - unlikely but possibly, even syphilis - are possibilities. All of those are curable with antibiotics, however. Plus, don't forget that fear and worry can create symptoms for diseases you don't have! If you're really worried, call some clinics in your town and see who has free, anonymous testing. You'll find someone and can get in and out in no time. Don't stress too much - I bet you'll be fine.

Yes you can get an STD from oral sex. It is also possible you have the flu, however. Get checked by a doctor- no one can diagnose you over the internet.

Yes, it is definately possible. I would advise you to go see a doctor, just to be sure it's not something other than the flu. Hope I helped :]
