Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Sexual Health


I asked a question about 2 weeks ago and you said you thought I may have had chlamydia or something similar. I went and got tested, everything came back negative. I have had a lot of weird symptoms but the only symptom i have had for the past 2 months is pain inside my urethra. It feels as though it is swollen and if I put pressure on it, it causes me pain and I sometimes can almost feel like a little bump inside there. Again I got tested, the doctor seemed to open the opening of my penis and saw nothing, the pain is about half an inch down the head. I had discharge maybe once and now that I've been cleared of std's I'm unsure as to what it could be.

Hi John,

First of all, I'm glad you went to the doctor because you get to rule out the things that's NOT wrong with you. However, this sounds like its anatomical in nature. Did you visit a urologist or just a family doctor? You might actually have to have an ultrasound or even a camera tube inserted to really see what's going on, but it sounds like physician A didn't go down deep enough, see if physician B will be willing to give it a try. I'm sorry you still don't feel well :(

Best wishes,

John B
