std

18 days ago had unprotected sex, 4 days later a dull pain in testicles and in legs and back.  Comes and goes but mostly when i am sitting down.  Have no other symptoms. Could this be a std?  Dull pain for almost two weeks, no discharge or pain when urinating.

Welcome to the Forum. You say nothing about the context of your symptoms and whether you have been exposed or tested for STDs.  That said, this would be quite an unusual presentation for an STD.  When STDs complications involving the testicles occur in men they most typically accompany symptoms such as a discharge of burning on urination.  In addition, STD symptoms tend to be there continuously rather than to come and go and typically would progress over a two week period.  For all of these reasons, what you describe does not raise concern about an STD.  EWH
