Hey there - hopefully i'm posting in the right forum. If not, pardon my ignorance. I'd like some advice on what's been going on with me - here's the basic info:
Married for 12 years, absolutely no chance of her being unfaitful, however in December I received oral sex and had protected vaginal sex on 4 occassions. Late December and January I had aching in my penis, burning/tingling in my urethra and pain at tip/opening of my penis. Went to a urologist and they did a urinalysis and blood work - white blood cells showed in the urine but bloodwork came back negative. I was put on 7 days of Doxycycline and given a shot of something. Symptoms went away pretty quick. The symptoms returned in early March - I called the urologist and they put be back on Doxycycline for 7 days - this time the symptoms have lessened but I still have discomfort in my urethra, a little bit of pain at the tip of the penis, and hte head of hte penis is cool to the touch. Should I go back to my urologist? Ask for 7 more days of Doxy? Or jsut settle down and stop tormenting myself? I've seen posts that refer to "mental" causes of genital pain.....am I likely to just be suffereing from this, or is an STD likely? I have no lesions or cuts or marks on my penis. I have had some spermatoceoles / epidydimits in the past as well. Thanks for your help and insight.
Was oral sex protected also? If not then your risk was low and the medication you took probably would have taken care of gonorrhea and maybe chlamydia. I would doubt a STD at this point. It maybe mental or maybe something else. If you still have these symptoms then it never hurts for some follow up testing instead of just medicating.
Yes they can. I have anxiety myself and I know how powerful the mind is and I have seen plent of people come on here with no issue at all but scared and talk about "symptoms". They may come back weeks later and say symptoms went away (meaning they stopped obsessing over it) or people say they only get symptoms when they think about it.
