ANSWER: Hello Mark,
Your penis looks fine. Your doctor treated you for symptoms of an infection, but without any evidence of your actually having anything. Your received "pills" for gonorrhea? The recommended treatment are not pills, but ceftriaxone (Rocephin), which is an injection. Pills for chlamydia was probably azithromycin, which was fine. Valtrex is for herpes, which of course you did not have. Wasted treatments! The pain you were experiencing was probably due to constipation and gas, which sometimes happens when you are both nervous/anxious, and with antibiotics, which may kill the good intestinal germs as well as the bad (which you didn't have). The pain in you legs is unrelated, and you may or may not have developed a candidal (yeast, a type of fungus) infection of your mouth (thrush).
What to do? Nothing! De-stress. Stop worry about something you don't have. You may need counseling to deal with all your anxiety.
QUESTION: thx so much sir for your answer !!!! if i can follow up ?
what is the posibility to get hepatitis B from this exposure ? i called the girl 100 times and she always tells me she has nothing.... Am really going crazy and am married i don't want that my wife has anything
and i don't know if you saw like the flek on the penis head but this is a bee picture and am using lotrimin and it helps really to clean the penis head ...
Answer Hello Again, Mark,
If you were born past the 1980s, there is a very high likelihood that you received vaccination against hepatitis B as part of the usual vaccination programs required in almost every state. Even so, hepatitis does not show up as a rash on the penis. It is a systemic infection that may cause a flu-like syndrome upon first exposure. In most people it is self limited, meaning after an acute phase of malaise, fatigue, sometimes jaundice, etc., it resolves by itself. Without vaccination, most people will develop subclinical hepatitis, without any signs or symptoms at all.
You are now experiencing anxiety, and THAT is what should be addressed, as your sexual contact was outside of your primary relationship with your wife and the guilt or regret you are feeling may need to be addressed by a counselor.
Almost any question or concern about gay men's health issues, sexually transmitted infections, abnormal Pap smears, anal cytology (anal "Pap smears"), etc.
There is no such thing as “d/d free” or “clean” (free of infection), so why do so many of us deceive ourselves into thinking that some people are indeed totally free from a potentially infectious disease, like HIV, herpes, hepatitis, syphilis, chlamydia, warts, gonorrhea, etc., just because they say so? Clinical laboratory tests are not perfect, and having a “negative” or “nonreactive” test does not mean that a person is free from infection. Perhaps at the moment the test was taken, the person was uninfected; or, perhaps, the test wasn’t sensitive enough to detect presence of the infection. There is really no way that anyone can determine that they are truly “disease free,” and there are over a hundred of infectious conditions that can be spread without your knowing anything.
Rather than trying to “pre-screen” or “serosort” a potential sex-mate with deceptive questions that are impossible to know by today’s technologies, a wiser option may be to consider everyone infected with something, and either use appropriate protective measures (“safer sex”), or accept the responsibility and consequences of possibly “catching” something from someone who’s hotter than expected (pun intended!).
There is much research that supports the contention that an HIV positive person reliably taking HIV medications, and having an undetectable viral load, presents a lower risk for transmission of HIV than people who may think or say they are HIV negative, but are not. Food for thought!
