What happens if you give head to someone with an STD like gonnerra?

by Rachel on April 23, 2011

My friend gave head to a guy (but he didn’t O yet) who she found out later had an STD. The verdict is still out for another 5 days but doctors thing it was either gonnerra or syphillis. Can she contract the infection?

OMG YES! ORAL SEX IS SEX! Also doctors have linked ORAL SEX (giving it to a man) to throat cancer! So always use a condom if you give oral sex to a man. And never ever give it to a guy you dont know well.

Yes. He doesn’t have to O for her to get anything. Any type of sexual contact without protection can put her at risk.

Gonorrhea/ syphilis is spread through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus. Ejaculation ( or orgasm) does not have to occur for gonorrhea to be transmitted or acquired. Gonorrhea /syphilis can also be spread from mother to baby during delivery.

Your friend should immediately seek testing so see whether she has contracted gonorrhea/syphilis, and for that matter, also consider getting an HIV test. HIV tests can be given by mouth, and the results can be known in 30 minutes. A follow up HIV test for affirmation is required, though.

People who have had gonorrhea and received treatment may get infected again if they have sexual contact with a person infected with gonorrhea.

Why is it so important to recive medical care for gonorrhea and other STDs?~~~

Untreated gonorrhea/syphilis can cause serious and permanent health problems in both women and men.

For example:

In women, gonorrhea is a common cause of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). About one million women each year in the United States develop PID. The symptoms may be quite mild or can be very severe and can include abdominal pain and fever. PID can lead to internal abscesses (pus-filled “pockets” that are hard to cure) and long-lasting, chronic pelvic pain. PID can damage the fallopian tubes enough to cause infertility or increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition in which a fertilized egg grows outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube.

In men, gonorrhea can cause epididymitis, a painful condition of the ducts attached to the testicles that may lead to infertility if left untreated.

Gonorrhea can spread to the blood or joints. This condition can be life threatening. In addition, people with gonorrhea can more easily contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. HIV-infected people with gonorrhea can transmit HIV more easily to someone else than if they did not have gonorrhea.

In the case of syphilis, here are the primary ways that it is passed on:

Syphilis is passed from person to person through direct contact with a syphilis sore. Sores occur mainly on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum. Sores also can occur on the lips and in the mouth. Transmission of the organism occurs during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Pregnant women with the disease can pass it to the babies they are carrying. Syphilis cannot be spread through contact with toilet seats, doorknobs, swimming pools, hot tubs, bathtubs, shared clothing, or eating utensils.

I sincerely hope you can support your friend whilst she is going throug her tests..that will help her through this difficult time. Also, perhaps take a lesson from this, yourself: always bring a condom on a date..even if you think it will **just** be something less physical. You never know..and you cannot rely on others to know their current health status. You have to watch out for yourself!

Best of luck to you and your friend!

Yes its possible if he had gonorrhea or syphilis she could contract it orally. She should see a doctor for a consultation.
