Many years ago, I used to had unprotected sex with my gf.
Approximately 11-12 months ago, I had a half unprotected sex (only wore a condom after a little while of intercourse), thereafter, I came to know that she is a bisexual. Will this expose myself to STDs?
Recently, I have some little lumps on my penis shaft, after some research online, I found something called "sebaceous prominence" or "fordyce spots" that look pretty close to what I'm having. According to my understanding, these are not considered as STDs, in fact, it's pretty common amongst guys, is this right?
For now, I do not have any other symptoms or signs of STDs, save for the little lumps on my penis shaft. Any idea of me having any STDs?
Few days ago, my friend brought me to a massage, it was a normal oil massage until this Thai massage parlor gave me a "manhood massage" which is called "urut batin" in Malay. A traditional way of massaging in my country. In short, this can also be known as a handjob. Will I be contracting STDs this way?
Yes, I know you couldn't possibly diagnose me over the internet, but maybe you could enlighten me a little.
I have still yet to consult any physicians, I plan to do an inclusive STDs checking in coming weeks.
