Approximately 5 months ago I had unprotected oral sex with a woman I don’t know. As I’m in a long term relationship I immediately felt anxiety and guilt. I noticed my foreskin and penis seemed slightly swollen. But very slight. Chalked it up to friction.
Last weekend I started getting symptoms of urethritis. No pus. Penis/prostate area is a constant, dull thud, but that dissipates after I urinate (urinating didnt hurt - it would feel better after I pee, though discomfort would soon return along with the urge to urinate).
I said my penis looks normal (no pus), but looking back I should have said that my foreskin seems swollen or covers more of my penis, and my testicles are a little uncomfortable.
Doc told me she thinks it’s UTI and doesn’t sound like Gonorrhea. Urine test at doc showed nothing abnormal. She also sent it off for routine culture and Gonorrhea/chlamydia screening. She gave me Cipro (2x a day for a week) and sent me off.
Tests came back negative for everything. What a relief. Symptom of urethra/penis discomfort seemed to subside after learning the good news.
But I started reading more and anxiety returned. I urinated about an hour before the catch (didn’t know), so I’m nervous about false negatives. Day 6 of pills. Balls still seem swollen, foreskin same. Still some pain, though less. Still urge to urinate and discomfort. I’m thinking the Cipro would have resolved those issues by now.
After reading about late stage issues, I’m concerned. It’s been 5 months. One issue I read about was joint pain. I had unexplained ankle pain a few months ago. Maybe 3-7 days. Not super painful, slight limp. I believe S.O. mentioned it was red. No pain now.
Last week, days before urethritis kicked in, I had unexplained pain in hip. Felt like I fell down (i was very drunk at Bach party and may have fallen down). Didn’t hurt when I move it or walked, but pain if I pressed against bone on my right side, or slept on it. No redness. It went away, but now I’m feeling mild muscle discomfort in back of hip. I’m not sure if this is legit pain or anxiety induced.
I was leaning towards “trust the test, it’s all in your head”.
Yesterday I got home and S.O. Complained of itchy rash all day. First her wrist (disappeared that day), also on trunk. Under breast, on her back, sides. Light pink, no vesicles or anything. Just slightly raised pink, itchy skin that seemed worse in creases of skin.
This morning she woke up with no rash or itchiness. Did I infect her with Gonorrhea??! Are we both experiencing symptoms throughout our bodies? I just recalled a few months ago she asked if lymph nodes in her neck felt swollen.
I’m going to a doc tomorrow. I’m going to explain the above and request a full std test.
Does anyone have insight to my situation?
