How long will it take to get STD symptoms after oral sex?

It can take anywhere from 1 day to 1 month to show symptoms of STDs contracted from oral sex. However, most people with STDs do not experience symptoms. So just because you are symptom-free does not guarantee that you are STD-free!

For more information on STD testing, visit City Clinic for places in San Francisco or visit and look for your city or State. If not there, try or call the CDC National Hotline for services near you: 1-800-CDC-INFO.

To your health,
Dr. K
