About 3 or 4 years ago, I remember noticing a sore on my thigh some days after sex. It went away on its own, and I don't remember if it was painful. I didn't realize until recently that syphilis begins as a sore, so now I'm very worried. Can anyone tell me what the sore might have been?
It may be unrelated, but I've recently been having some abdominal / testicular pain, which is why I started researching possible STDs.
I'm not very sexually active, but I'm worried that the man I met several years ago may have been. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
We only had non-penetrative intercourse, so I wasn't very worried at the time.
I'm not asking for what it is, just what it could possibly be. If I need tests, what tests should I have done? What could a sore on the thigh be caused from? Could it be something other than an STD? Do I need to get tested for syphilis?
I'm disabled and it's difficult for me to visit a clinic discretely, so I'd like to have an idea of what needs to be done from this point.
you can contract some std's from outer course but the risk of such is very low.
really no reason to think that your current symptoms are related to the encounter a few years ago. if you are having pain, you should be seen by your regular provider for some basic testing and exam to try to figure out what is going on. since it's not likely it's a std related reason, no reason to try to be discrete :)
