I'm male 42. Last December I had sex with a new female partner. We used a condom for intercourse, but I received unprotected oral sex. In the following days/weeks I had no evident lesions, sensations, etc. However, about a month after the encounter I began to have a strange sensation in my urethra, not really pain or burning, more like a needle or a light cold burning feeling acompanied by ocasional itching. There is no pain when urinating nor in orgasm. These symptoms were accompanied by an increase in urinating frequently up to 10 times a day for a little more than a week and also by a feeling of urinating even when unrequired. I had these symptons for nearly two weeks when I managed to visit the urologist (1 month and a half after the sex encounter), who prescribed some Flavoxate for the urinating urgency/ferquency and a set of STI tests. The tests included urine culture and semen sample for mycoplasms, bacteria and chlamydia. All came back negative. The doctor was nonchallant about the results (this is about two months after the encounter)... the results are negative, so he figures whatever mistery there is it will clear by it self, and that it is also possible that I had some physical damage. Since I have absolutely no cause to suspect physical damage, I wondered and questioned him if there could be any another cause (sexual or not) for these symptons, but this made no change to his advice. He prescribed me some anti-inflamatory (Nimesulide) to take for a week, which I did. During the nimesulide week my symptons did tone down, albeit at times became worst.... for two days my urethra was painfully sensitive along the shaft. I have now been 6 days of the Nimesulide and my symptons are intermitent, generally during the evening it is quite disconforting, though I never had pain again. Currently my sensation is more like the begining disconfort in the initial area of the urethra (the gland portion), no pain, but a little itching, which increases during the evening.
I'm unhappy with my situation and with the prospect of infecting my girlfriend sex partner. So I have had no sex since that encounter. I'm aware that contracting some decease (STI or not) for a male receiving oral is unlikely (but possible).
I wonder if there could be some other infection which would not be detected in the tests performed, that I should test for? And generally what advice would you give me on how to proceed.
