User :   I need to chat about a possible STD infection from 13 days ago, seeking advice.
User :   hello?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr. xxx
User :   Good evening
Doctor :   I can assist you
Doctor :   Please go ahead
User :   Quick background on the situation
User :   i reused a anal sex toy from another person unknowlingly last week. The toy was washed in antibacterial soap and water before I used it
User :   about 1 minute of washing
Doctor :   Ok
User :   3 days later, I began having some anal pain, no bleeding
Doctor :   Ok
User :   I went to my personal physician last Thursday (9 days after exposure)
Doctor :   Right
User :   she did not do any swabs, etc
User :   she told me to apply cortizone cream to the rectum
User :   welll..
Doctor :   ok
User :   today I started receiving some tecticular tenderness that comes and goes
User :   still no bleeding, just rectal tenderness
User :   so my questions are: User :   what is the chance I could of received an STD?
User :   should I return to the doctor for further tests
Doctor :   Ok, before I answer you . I have doubts to clarify
Doctor :   May I?
User :   ok sure
User :   please do so
Doctor :   What is your age?
User :   29
User :   male
Doctor :   Since how long you are using anal sex toys?
User :   years
User :   lots of prostate stimulation toys typically
Doctor :   Did the doctor say that there are tears in the anus?
User :   similar to the one I used two weeks ago
Doctor :   after examination
User :   she put of the glove and felt around and said their was no warts, etc. But it looked red
User :   she did not state anything about a tear
Doctor :   How long does the rectal pain last each time?
User :   pretty much off and on all day, hours sometimes, about a 3 to 4 on the pain scale
Doctor :   Do you have pain while passing stool?
User :   no
Doctor :   Are you still continuing the anal toy after this incident?
User :   np
User :   no
User :   no rectal play since
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Do you see any anal discharge while cleaning with tissue?
Doctor :   pus or white colored?
User :   no pus or white color, no
Doctor :   Were you given any pain killers for timely use?
User :   no, just the cortizone cream
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   To answer your questions
Doctor :   1) The possibility of STD is nearly zero
Doctor :   2) You should return to the doctor for better medications with pain killers and you should not resume anal plays for at least one to two months
User :   i like both of those answers, should I mention this accident if I go to another doctor or say I have rectal pain?
Doctor :   Please explain the incidents
User :   quite embarrassing...
User :   well - what I just told you about reusing a anal toy that was not mine
Doctor :   Actually doctors treat the symptoms and the cause and counsel the behaviours
Doctor :   Not a problem
Doctor :   They have to appreciate that you are clean in washing the toy before use
User :   so this makes me feel better, could the testiular tenderness just relate to my mind and worrying?
User :   i have been reading up on stds..
Doctor :   If the anal play is vigorous it can pass as a feeling of testicular pain
User :   even after two weeks?
Doctor :   Next thing is actually your doctor should palpate your testicles to rule out testicular injury
User :   and i have not felt it until today
Doctor :   because anal plays tend to injure testicles too
User :   ok. so do not follow up with std tests then?
Doctor :   No need, actually it is the local injury because of the friction and the force
User :   i appreciate your time and expertise
Doctor :   I suggest you to practice normal masturbation
User :   this will not happen again
Doctor :   instead of anal plays
User :   i agree :- )
Doctor :   because of the complications it has
User :   thank you very much
User :   have a good evening
Doctor :   Pleasure here
