Brief Answer: Possibility of Epididymitis is likely. Detailed Answer: HI, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. As you had protected exposure there is not much of chance for STD. Your symptoms denote that you are likely to have Epididymitis. Inflammation of Epididymis, a structure where Vas Deferens started and it is situated just above and laterally over testis. There are so many other reasons for Epididymitis other than STD like Tuberculosis, UTI, Filariasis etc. If you could consult a surgeon , he will examine you and with necessary investigations, he will able to tackle your problem of scrotal pain. GET well soon. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: No harm in delay in treatment for a month. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome back. Epididymitis of STD origin may likely to flare up with short duration. As yours is not likely of STD origin and likely to be due to other causes, it may remain like this for months together. If the nuisance is bearable for you there is no harm in getting treated after a month. There is no much of home remedies for this condition. Drink plenty of fluids and water. That will clear the UTI. Avoid travel in two wheeler and highly jerky vehicles and travel on bad roads which will aggravate your condition. No abstinence from sex is necessary, but protected intercourse is recommended till you get cured completely. Dr S.Murugan
