Question about penis problems

So I had unprotected sex with a women about a month ago. About a week after it I had a slight red rash on my penis head similar to a yest infection but it went away after about two days. A few days after that I started to notice that while I urinated it was burning abit. Now whenever I pee in the morning it burns but during the day it's fine. I have no other symptoms, no swelling, no discharge, no itching, no redness no other symptoms but slight discomfort at the tip of my penis.

I want to go get tested but I don't know if this is just a urinary infection that treated at home can go away.

What do you think it is? Need to know the possibilities.

Get treated for all STD’s, this included mycoplasma genitalium. Be sure to be off of antibiotics for at least 3 weeks and use first void urine.

Do not treat at home. It could be a UTI, but even then, you need the correct antibiotic for the specific bacteria causing it. Only a lab test can tell you that.

If you treat at home with an antibiotic, and it's not a UTI, the antibiotics you take can mess up test results for a few weeks after, making it hard to determine what it is you have.

It could be an STD - gonorrhea, chlamydia or NGU, or a UTI. The only way to know is to test.

Feel better soon!

But the symptoms I'm showing? Do they correlate to gonorrhea and chlamydia? And are those curable? Or they for life...

Also I have taken amoxicycillin to try and cure whatever I have and it hasn't done anything .... So that's a stuff up then?
Yes, they could be gonorrhea or chlamydia. Those are curable, but not with amox.

Your best bet now is to go to your doc and let him/her know what happened and that you took the amox, and test. It may give you false negatives, but they may treat based on symptoms.
