Light throbbing, dicomfort inside uthrehra (?) penis

Over the last few days, I've had a light throbbing, dicomfort inside the upper part of my penis.  It does not hurt when I urinate nor is any drip present. I am a bit obsessed about it and showed my doctor the pink area around my utethral opening.  She said that it looked very normal.  I feel she may think I'm OCD because I have been in there in the past with itching at the base of my penis that turned out to be nothing. In the past a dancer stroked my penis after she touched herself- included her fluids... She also put her vagina near my penis, but not inside.  That stressed me out but I've read that carried no risk.   Any ideas?

No STD normally causes such a symptom.  In any case, you read correctly:  you can't catch any STD from the exposures you describe (hand-genital contact, "vagina near penis").

OCD or not, return to your doc if your symptoms persists.  Maybe she will agree that it's easy to test your urine for common STDs, just to set your mind at ease.  But if she again reassures that you don't have an STD -- with or without the lab tests -- please trust her.  If your symptoms still continue, you can then discuss the OCD business or other possible explanations.

Good luck--  HHH, MD

It can also be described as a bit tingling at times.  Maybe undetected std from past experience?  How long can it take before symptoms surface?

I searched the forum but found variations... for the record - how long should one wait since their sexual experience before testing for: gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphillis (syphilis), hiv, and other common issues?  

Thanks in advance for this and thank you for the service you provide to us all!

I forgot to mention that when I masterbate, the "feeling" I have in my penis feels better, almost massaged. Is that any indicator?

Your symptoms still don't suggest any STD.  Gonorrhea and chlamydia tests are accurate a few days after exposure.  Blood tests for syphilis and HIV can be done after about 6 weeks.  You don't have any of those things.

I will have no further comments or suggestions.  Work with your own doctor(s).  This thread is over.
