1) Did you have unprotected sex with unknown woman very recently?

I have been in a monogamous relationship with my partner for just over a year now. I had a STI check a year ago, before the relationship, which was clear. I had received unprotected oral sex about 2 weeks ago. I do not usually use protection either during any vaginal or oral sex.

2) Do you have any urinary symptoms like burning urination ,frequency etc ?

Yes; Increased frequency / need. Stinging urination. This is why I went to my local GP, who diagnosed it as a UTI after a positive urine test and prescribed Amoxycillin.

3) Do you have any discharge from Penis (Urethra) ?

No

4) Is there itching of Genitals?

No.

5)Upload photograph of your penis .?

I have attached some photos.

6) Upload report of Swab Test

I have not received the results of the swab test yet.
