STD worries

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had a one night stand with a girl 3 months ago. Tested neg for for std's 2weeks later and again 10 weeks later. Since the encounter though Ive had a mild pain/irritation-cold feeling in my penis and also the meatus is red. I''ve been using canestan for a week as the GUM nurse and GP suggested thrush with no effect. tI feels however that leakin urine is causing the reddness and irritation due to my urethra having narrowed somehow. Could this be an infection that has been missed?? (also got urine checked at GP and all normal) The GUM nurse assured me that I have not got an STD but these symptoms all started at the time of the unprotected sex. Could the stress be causing this issue.??

    Please believe your GUM nurse. If you test negative then almost certainly you are negative. 

    Just because it was a one night stand does not mean the girl was infected and unless she was there is no way that you can be infected.

    Possibly the symptoms are due to stress.  In future until you are both certain of each other use a condom

    Cheers John, My rational brain knows I'm negetive for Sti's but its the constant irritation with the reddness that keeps me second guessing.. Hopefully time cures whatever this is.

    Hi, Tests only cover the individual std that are tested for, so ask if there are other std's they can test for, that have similar symptoms that you are experiencing.

    The leaking urine insinuates a possible prostate or bladder infection. I hope this helps some. Good Luck and always play safe.
