Chlamydia Risk ? Or Trich .... or .... or ... or ....

Hello,
    I received unprotected oral sex from a woman I met in a bar, followed by protected vaginal sex.
I later found out that this woman supposedly gave another guy HSV-2 from unprotected vaginal sex. I do not know the validity of that claim.

One month later I was tested for everything by STDAlert.  All tests came back negative.

This has me concerned because I believe I have been positive for HSV-1 for many years now, although I have never been tested for it.
My wife is also HSV-1 positive (confirmed via tests)

So I am concerned about the validity of the tests. I have not heard any feedback on the testing company positive or negative.

Now, at 6 weeks out, I am experiencing pain in urinating, penile pain at other random times, and pain in my testicles. Although I have not had any noticeable discharge, there are "spots" inside of my underwear. And I am not sure how notibile the discharge would be?

Although I know risk of Chlamydia is low from oral sex I am still concerned. Assuming the other guys claims are true this woman apparently does have STD's, and based on my questioning the validity of the tests from STDAlert, all combined with my symptoms has me worried.

I read that 50% of men who contract Chlamydia (or NGU - From Chlamydia trachomatis) do not have any symptoms and may not even know. I am also concerned about Trich, and I am not sure if I was tested for that or if it would show up?

What else do I need to do to know for sure? What tests should I have done?

Thanks in advance for any advice !!

                HSV-1. Equivocal may suggest early infection.  If
                clinically appropriate, retest at later date. Positive

hi and welcome. oral is low risk and protected is no risk for std,s
testing times below:

chlamydia and gono -------1 week
syphilis-------------------------- 6 weeks
herpes ----------------------------3 months
these are all post exposure

It would be best to have a follow up with your doctor  in regards to any concerns your having. Sometimes anxiety can produce irritations from constant checking and pulling and milking. The doctor will know the best course of action in your situation.

Protected sex is low risk bt nt sure I'd say " no risk". There is always inherent risk

When used correctly condoms block secretions from entering the urethra.

So you are telling me tha it is very difficult to get chlamydia from protected sex (unless there is slippage or a break)?

If a penis is in a vagina or anus and has a condom on it, what ever bacteria or virus that is in the vagina or anus cannot get into the urethra. This is why the phrase "used correctly" applies to your question. Chlamydia cannot enter the protected tip of the penis because the latex (or what ever) makes an impenitratable barrier.
