Question: Can gonnorhea / chlamydia from oral sex cause vaginal sympt?

if you contracted gonnorhea or chlamedia from just having oral sex, would you have any of the symptoms in the vagina? and is PID possible?

User avatar Hi Bamagirl66,

It would not be expected that a throat infection would subsequently lead to vaginal symptoms or PID. However, if you were to have vaginal contact by a person with an oral infection it is possible for the infection to be transmitted to the vagina and lead to vaginal symptoms and possibly PID.

Best wishes.
