Question: Hello, I made a mistake and went to massage parlour for a happy ending massage. I didn't touch her at all, but she did slide on me for a while. I didn't see her touching her vagina either. I'm just really scared that I could've got an std from getting a hand job.. Should I go get tested and what type of test or am I fine? We were both naked though.. Please help

Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

The chances of STDs transmission are minor and you should not be worried and I don't think that tests are required. You should just wait and see if some signs will occur, but as I said, chances for something like this are really minor if there wasn't any penetration.

Wish you good health.

Thank you Dr. Rommstein, so I don't have to worry about anything because she only used her hands on me? I've seen online that some sites say that getting an infection from hands is possible though. I'm just feeling so bad about this event, especially when I have a girlfriend and don't want to do anything to her. My mind is tricking me a lot now.. It will definitely be the first and the last time.

Do you have any instructions how to leave this behind and move on?

Detailed Answer:
There is theoretical risk but this is really minimal. Only if she touched her genital are and then you,the transmission is possible but even then this is low. So this should not worry you so much. for the other thing,there is no some specific advice. you are still young and you ll have lot of ups and downs in your relationship. This can be a warning,not to visit such clubs and massages since some thing may happen that you ll regret later. this specific event can be something that your girlfriend doesn't need to know.

I recently had unprotected intercourse with a female partner, the next morning I had slight tingle/irritating sensation inside the tip of my penis nothing too painful and it dose not hurt to urinate or ejaculate. Over the past 3 days I went and go tested to STDs and am awaiting results during this time I have developed lower abdominal pain (near the bladder) as well as sore and tender testicles I m not sure what this could be as I have not visible sore on my genitals or discharge.

Hi Dr. Dilip Raja,

I am a 23 year old, sexually active male. I have had a history of fungal infections (jock itch, infected toes, etc) all over my body. About 3 months ago I started having severe pain on the tip of my penis that worsened after urination, ejaculation and chaffing. I was tested for all STDs at 2 months and 4 months after possible exposure and everything came up negative. I was put on 2 months worth of antibiotics which did nothing to improve my condition. Recently the pain at the tip has gone away but there is now a small line (indentation) along the base of the head of the penis which is the source of the discomfort. It is greatly affecting my sex life. I hope you can help.

hello i have pain after urination, weak urine stream and trouble releasing all urine from bladder. also feel some stillin tubes. slight pain during ejaculation. burning worse at night but starting to be more frequent threw day. had this about 3 weeks with bad burning so i went in after 3 weeks of trying to drink lots of water bc i thought it was a urinary track infection since my wife gets them alot. after 3 weeks wheni took pee test i was tested postitive for clamitia, but my wife who i had unprotected sex with the whole 3 weeks with symtoms came out negative for everythiig and got full paps and swab done, when i returned for 2nd test after meds i could alrdy feel it comeing back, but test came up negative for all stds. whats wrong? its becomeing more difficult to pass urine, more frequent burning the burning is like it pulsates from groin area when it does burn not a steady burn. it can hurt more when flexing that area or moving postions in bed. 26 years old 6 foot 140p ptsd and depression from iraq
