What causes discomfort in testicles and itchy penis?

default
Posted on Thu, 12 Feb 2015
Question: About two months ago I had unprotected vaginal and anal sex. About a week after I started feeling pressure in my testicles, and for about a week would get random small aches on penis. Did research and read that the stds that affect testicles are gonorrhea and/or chlamydia, got tested for both, came back negative. Then it kind of just went away. Recently had unprotected sex and the symptoms came back, but with less testicle pressure, but Im getting small aches on my penis, and my testicles are a little itchy. I am 25 and have had a Varicocele vein in my left testicle for a long time, around 10 years.

No other urinary symptoms, or any noticable discharge. But I did develop a yeast infection, which I had about a year ago, and was told to put Miconazole Nitrate 2%, and it has helped.
