Would anal chlamydia or gonorrhea show up on a urine test?
Help please! I am male.
6 weeks ago I had unprotected oral-genital and oral-anal sex (in both instances he went down on me), and there was very brief genital-genital contact. This is the first time I've had sexual contact.
3 weeks following the encounter I started having the frequent urge to urinate. 1 week after this symptom I went to get an STD test. They did a blood test, swab of the urethra and urine test, all of which came back negative for all STDs.
5 weeks after the encounter the frequent urge to urinate stopped, however as this stopped I started developing discomfort in my anus.
There was mild burning/itching at first, and 3 days after this started I decided to check my anus and noticed a segment of the anus is slightly swollen in a line leading down to the hole, and at the end of this swelling is a tiny red bump.
I went to the GUM clinic again and was told this bump was neither herpes nor genital warts so I was sent home.
The issues with my anus have continued, and there is consistent feeling of fullness/like I need to have a bowel movement, which returns shortly after any bowel movement I have. I've never had to go more than once a day so this is unusual.
I've considered what this could be, and realised that seeing as they didn't swab my rectum how would they know if I had anal gonorrhea/chlamydia?
Please help! I have to wait till Tuesday before the GUM clinic is open again.
