Aching Testsicles- Two Negative STD Tests


I had unprotected sex and about 2 weeks later started having aches in my testicles. No other symptoms. I went in for a Urine and Blood STD test 10 days out and received a negative result. I went in to see an urologist 24 days after the sexual encounter and the urine test came back negative again.

My question is: is it possible to have a STD that causes pain in the testicles after I had two negative tests? most cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia show up after 3 weeks correct? I also move furniture part time so my urologist thinks my symptoms might be caused by lifting. I plan on going back for a 3rd STD test after 3 months after contact, just to be sure.

I'm worried I have a STD that didn't show up after two negative tests. Am I worrying too much? Thanks

Thank you so much for the response. I'm going to wait to get the full STD test 12 weeks out from the sexual encounter just to be sure, but hopefully it's just a lifting injury.

1. No
2. Gonorrhea in about 3 days, chlamydia 50+% will show symptoms by 2 weeks, but you have negative tests so it is neither of those.
3. I would agree with the injury aspect.
4. This would not be gonorrhea or chlamydia.
