STD through kissing

I kissed a guy nothing sexual came from it our clothes stayed on all the way through, by Monday I had a bit of a sore throat could I have picked up any form of STD/ STI?? I'm bring really paranoid as I get myself tested every quarter and don't mess about with random men. Little bit worried.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thanks for getting in touch with us. You can't catch an STI from kissing, but you can get or pass on a cold sore, which is often confused with an STI as its caused by the herpes simplex virus, there is a different version of this you can catch, but that would be through oral sex. So unless the person had visible sores on their mouth, most probably wouldn't kiss someone when there mouth/lips are in the infection period of time. So you are probably over worrying, and the only thing you could of caught would be if they were ill with a virus, such as the flu or sore throat etc. That is what is probably causing your sore throat, give it a few days and hopefully it will pass. Take usual medications when you have a sore throat, drink plenty of fluids and in a few days you should see a difference. Failing that if you still feel unwell after a week, make an appointment with your GP. We hope this has eased your concerns, please let us know if we can be of further help
