    Male here, I performed oral on a random girl and was wondering what all the possible STDs that could be passed on from a male performing oral on a girl?

    my tongue has a white/yellow coating since, doesnt hurt or anything and scrubs off when i brush hard with my tooth brush but after a few hours it just comes back. Went to my GP and showed them (didnt tell i performed oral) and they said they think its thrush so they gave me a single tablet to take however it still hasnt gone and its been over a month since i took the tablet.

    Go back to the doctors but I believe thrush can be passed between people in that way.

    Yep, back to the GP.

    Thrush can be transmitted this way, but isn't 'an STI' because you can get it without going near anyone else: it's a fungal infection from something most people have in their mouths normally anyway.

    The quality of evidence for oral transmission is surprisingly poor. Amongst other things, oral sex is common but most people have other sorts of sex too. But let's assume she had more or less everything (while remembering that she very probably didn't have most / all of this list and you can't catch an STI from someone who doesn't already have it...)

    Looking at the viruses, you won't get HIV this way; you might get HSV, but if you have ever had a cold sore you've got at least one of the two strains already; it's possible you might get HPV, but reports linking it to oral/throat cancer are the drugs companies trying to get you to buy their vaccine - smoking and alcohol are vastly more likely to cause it; and there's no real evidence for getting anything else.

    For the bacterial ones, you might get gonorrhoea, syphilis is a 'probably not', and chlamydia is a 'possibly'.

    All are riskier for fellatio rather than cunnilingus.
