Brief Answer:
Unlikely to have STD as on today.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you had unprotected sex with unknown female before 3 days and having pain in testicles and lower abdomen however there is no urethral discharge or any urinary symptoms like burning ,itching ,or developed any lesion over genitals that are common features of STD

Normally it takes 3-5 days after exposure for STD to develop early signs and symptoms of STD .Since you do not have symptoms pertaining to STD there is nothing to be worried about it .However in view of it being a unprotected sex you need to get basic screening tests for STD and HIV done after 2 weeks and repeat the same after three months to be rest assured about acquiring these diseases .

In the mean while start taking Doxicycline and anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily.This will help to reduce the testicular pain .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

I have black flecks in my stool , specifically, after I wiped. I recently ate broccoli though (less than 24 hours ago), but couldn t determine for myself if it was simply undigested broccoli buds or not. I am also suffering from pretty bad hypochondria. I am misdiagnosing myself all over the place ( back pain = spinal tumor , testicle pain = testicular cancer , and so on). The stress has gotten pretty bad, as this bout of hypochondria has been pretty intense for the past two weeks. Due to a lack of medical insurance, I ve yet to set an appointment for a physical, and of course I m terrified. I m sure my anxiety has caused some of the pain I m diagnosing. Does it sound plausible that the black specks could be broccoli buds or have I given myself something like IBS? Also, any general advice you could give me to get me through this stressful period would be helpful. -Andrew

Hello, I had vaginal and anal intercourse about a month ago and when I pulled out I noticed blood on the condom. I've been freaking out since, God forbid I caught something.
I went to a Dr. (2-3 weeks after the incident) and he said that nothing will show now, however he gave me equinox for chlamydia and other urinary tract infections just in case (one shot and 10 pills over 5 days).

Today, I have small bumps on the shaft of my penis, mild testicular pain, dry lips and after I ejaculate there is some mild pain as well.
