On 22nd Dec. i had a sexual contact with a professional. On 2nd XXXXXXX I had sex with my wife. Around 8th XXXXXXX i got itching sensation in my urethra. I saw a doctor and he gave me a course of 6 antibiotic injections and the itching disappeared. Thereafter i haven't had any sexual contact with my wife. So far in the last two months she hasn't complained of any itching or burning sensation while passing urine. Do you think its safe for us to resume sex now?
