Slight tingling sensation in penis after urination. History of having unprotected sex and taking azithromycin. Possible std?

Hi , I had unprotedted sex with a female of unknown sexual health, I began to get paranoid about contravting chlamydia or gonorrhea so I ordered 1000mg azithromycin from a online doctors called freedom health , I took the tablets a week after the encounter, but since taking them I have had a slight discomfort (tingling sensation) in my penis after urination, but no pain during urination or no penile discharge .do you think that I possibly have a std such as chlamydia or gonnorhea and the azithromycin has not cured it? it is.now 2 weeks since the sexual encounter. Thanks for your time

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
Its fine if you have taken azithromycin to prevent chlamydia or gonorrhoea but you should remember that there are many other sexually transmitted diseases that can be contracted through unprotected sex with a partner of unknown sexual health.
Diseases like syphilis, genital warts and genital herpes are highly transmissible. You can never know if you have contracted infections like HIV through unprotected sex.

I am not scaring you but making you aware of the various infections transmitted by unsafe sex.

I strongly suggest you consult a doctor and get necessary tests done to confirm any other infection (viral, fungal) in your genital region and get treated for that.

Hope this helps.

hi
Azithromycin is a good choice to protect against such infections. If you are still doubtful, take azithromycin 1000 mg once a day for 3 days. Take the medicine of a good company from market
Tingling sensations can be due to slight infection of terminal urethra or even anxiety. Drink a lot of water and keep a watch. Please remember, prevention is the best cure so try to use protection next time.

Welcome to HCM.
There are always chances of sexually transmitted disease after unprotected sex with unknown female.
Complete course of azithromycin,it will definitely help you but you have to also complete course of secnidazole and flucanazole-150.
Drink more water and other liquids.Take proper local care.
Avoid stress and go for investigations like cbc,std profile,urine to confirm the diagnosis and better line of treatment under guidance of your doctor.

hi,
its just anxiety, now you have taken antibiotics, so even if you contracted disease it would have cleared by now.

never have unprotected sex with strangers. use condoms and enjoy.

otherwise you have to face anxiety, stress.

wish you healthy life.

Hi , About 3 weeks and a half weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex with an escort and ever since then I d been worried about getting an STD . After about 3 or 4 days after the incident I started getting weird tingling/stabbing sensations in my penis , it always comes and goes and doesn t last for long. It doesn t hurt too much just a very annoying sensation. I mostly feel it on the top of my penis head but sometimes I feel it in the shaft and most of the time it s on the left side of my penis. I do however feel better once I urinate and I m able to avoid this sensation for quite a while after I urinate but it still hasn t gone away. So basically I ve started drinking lots of water but now I obviously have to go pee a lot more often. I also noticed that if I avoid masturbation for a while it occurs even less. I even noticed tiny white dots on my penis in random pattern( sometimes i think i see it in a line don t know if I m imagining it ! ) on the left side near the opening but these dots only appear when my penis head is dry, It doesn t go away if I put water on it but goes off I think when my penis sweats or secrets something ? I dunno point is , the dots are visible when my penis is dry and not visible when it s wet ( and by wet I mean not wetted by water) I am 25 years old and I don t have any of the symptoms of an STD like burning pain while urinating or any yellow discharges etc. I was checking out other forums and it seems a lot of people have this condition and nobody is clear on the answer. So what s really going on ??

Hello doctor, I had a brief exposure about a week back which i regret so much. I performed cunnlingus on a sex worker just before having protected sex. I have read and researched that Cunnilingus has almost zero risk for HIV contraction however I am worried of other STDs. about 3 days after the exposure, i am getting this delicate tingling sensation inside my penis but it is not painful and there is no burning sensation when urinating. It is just slightly discomforting. However I want to ask what this could be? Could it be a genital wart inside? what antibiotics can I take to prevent anything else from developing such as gonnorhea? also my question is participating in oral activity such as cunnlinugus, could the std be passed on to genitals even though it was only a brief oral exposure?

Hi, I m a male and currently sleeping with 3 women unprotected. I am almost 100% sure that all 3 women that I m sleeping with are not sleeping with no one else but me and haven t been throughout our relations. Lately I ve been experiencing a tingly sensation that usually occurs after I ve had sex with them in consecutive nights. I ve also experienced some cloudy urine with no pain and I m getting some clear discharge leaving small wet spots in my white underwear at the end of the day. Our HIV tests have came back negative and one of my partners randomly gets STD checks and has been negative throughout our relations. I recently got an STD exam last Tuesday and I m waiting for my results tomorrow. I was wondering if there was any type of bacterial infection that could be causing the tingly sensation other than an STD like a UTI or something. I understand that UTI s are rare.

I am 62 years of age. Six feet one inch and 168 pounds. I am married and have been for 35 years. The marriage is very affectionate but largely sexless. I am unable to maintain an erection with my wife. Two years ago, much to my regret, I got into another relationship that ended 6 months ago. We never had penetrative sex, she gave me oral sex. I half entered her just once, and then for a couple of minutes only before discontinuing. I have been checked out for 'standard' STIs - chlamydia, gonnorrhea, syphilis, HIV, and shown clear. This was after I started to worry about having contracted something. I had some urinary difficulties that my GP felt were probably a UTI, and I was treated with Cipro. The current difficulty is that I started to focus on my penile area when I first began to sorry about it. Since then, I have noticed an almost constant tingling/burning in my penis (this has been over a period of probably 6-8 weeks. It seems to affect the end of the penis and the underside. There are no lesions.sores to be seen. It seems not to be there when I wake up, but worsens as the day goes on. I also seem to feel a tingling in the sole of my left foot. I suspect if may be psychosomatic, as it seemed to coincide with me first worrying about an STI. It also seems to be absent when I am distracted. My concern is whether there could be a clinical reason
