genital discomfort

I am a 26yr old male, had unprotected sex 9 days ago for no more that 5 minutes. The only problems i am having is my penis shaft hurts, lower abdominal pain and some lower back pain. This pain goes away when i am standing or walking. i am not having any discharge,painful urination or any sores. i am seriously worried about this. what could this be? I have been checking all std syptoms (symptoms) but, maybe you can help me.

No STD causes the symptoms you describe.  Most likely it is anxiety-related, perhaps the male pelvic pain syndrome.  That terminology is most commonly used for more chronic problems than yours, but otherwise it sounds like the best bet.  See these two threads on this forum: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/STD/messages/4380.html, http://www.medhelp.org/forums/STD/messages/4392.html

And also this website:  http://www.pelvicpainhelp.com/excerpts.html

For still more information, use the search link to look for threads on 'STD symptoms' to see several other discussions of the same sort of problem.

I would just relax and be assured that no STD can be responsible.  Just knowing this may help the symptoms resolve.  But if the problem continues, see your personal health care provider for examination to be sure something else isn't responsible.

Good luck--  HHH, MD
