Brief Answer: Refer below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank You for consulting HealthcareMagic again! Good that your report came normal. Addition to my previous answer to you, sperms without tails may appear as pus cells in the semen in some cases. Moreover, bacteria present on the skin can easily contaminate a semen sample, which can also show as an infection. So, I want you to stay reassured. However, if this is still worrying you, repeat the semen analysis with semen culture and also get tested for STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea, by consulting your family physician. Stay healthy and thank you for consulting! You can contact me again anytime, if you need clarifications or further assistance in future. Kindly rate the answer if you are satisfied.

Brief Answer: Refer below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank You for follow up! I personally do not suspect particular kind of STD in you based on all the available information by you. However, to get you reassurance, you may need STD screening of commonly occurred infections. Advise on what tests are required, can be given based on physical examination findings. Generally, chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis are commonly occurring infections. So, better to get tested for them based on your history of exposure. Discuss this with your family physician as well, so that he can add few more tests, based on personal and sexual history along with physical examination findings. Stay healthy and thank you for consulting! You can contact me again anytime, if you need clarifications or further assistance in future. Kindly rate the answer if you are satisfied.
