Oral sex exposes you to syphilis, gonorrhea and herpes. The risk is low compared to penetrative sex, but it's not zero, You should test as follows:
-Gonorrhea, 3 weeks after the exposure.
-Herpes, 3 months after the exposure.
-Syphilis, 6 weeks after the exposure. If the result is negative, repeat the test 3 months after the exposure, as there are people who take longer to show a positive result.

All the best.

The azithromycin you took would take care of chlamydia, which you didn't have a risk for, and NGU, which you did. It would not cure gonorrhea or syphilis, and herpes is a virus, so there is no cure.

Since you took the medication, you'll have to wait at least 3 weeks to test for gonorrhea, instead of the normal 3-5 days. The antibiotic can cause you to perhaps have a false negative test.

I called the local std clinic they said the antibiotics would take care of gonorrhea down stairs but not the throat and I would have to wait 10 days to test and hiv is not a concern for my situation
Honestly, I don't even know how that makes sense. Oral gonorrhea is the same as genital gonorrhea, and the treatment is the same for both. You'd get a shot AND take 1 gm of azithromycin.

They may be less conservative in regards to the wait time to rest. I'm not as concerned about that.

In any case, I hope you go in for testing, and make sure they do an oral test. Oral gonorrhea isn't as common as genital, but it's still definitely possible.

They are correct - HIV is not a concern for you from this encounter.
