Urinal Infection

Sep 11, 2012

Have had a genital irritation for a week warts or lesions..or visible rashes...many symptoms are eerily similar to STD like Gonorrhea, but the weird aspect is I have not had any active sex apart from a few times of 'mutual masturbation'..but its worrisome that many of my symptoms are similar to STD's. any reason for urine swab/check?


Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- I would suggest seeing a dr and telling him about your symptoms. Some STDs can remain asymptomatic for a period of time and so testing would be advised. In addition, testing for another cause of a urinary tract infection would make sense. Take care,


Possible Fluid Transmission
Is it possible??
