Gonorrhea on mouth is also called as pharyngeal gonorrhea which is also sexually transmitted disease. It is caused by gram negative bacteria called N. Gonorrhoeae and spreads through saliva or other body fluids. Having oral sex is not completely safe and you can only avoid pregnancy and not infection. There is every chance for getting HIV, Chlamydia, gonorrhea and Syphillis by having oral sex and anal sex.
People are likely to get infection when they come into contact with body fluids like pus, white discharge and secretions from vagina from infected person. This fluid will then mix with the person’s fluid like seminal or vaginal fluid and mucous membranes causing gonorrhea.
The symptoms of oral gonorrhea are sore throat, difficulty in swallowing food, strep throat, white spots and redness on throat. Some people will also have fluid like white discharge from their mouth with foul smell.
Both men and women can get gonorrhea on mouth and will share the same symptoms. It starts usually with kissing activity since bacteria will be present on mouth cavity or even tongue. Bacteria will also enter your body when it is present in the pharynx and your sexual partner piuts his/her fingers, genitals or anus inside.
Doctor will examine the condition of the throat and will do throat swab test for detecting the presence of N. gonorrhoeae( Neisseria gonorrhoeae ).
