Hi, about 10 days ago I saw an escort from an agency. I was her first customer of the day. Both she and I rinsed with mouthwash beforehand and we got into the shower together. She did not appear to be ill (ie. no coarse voice) and had no visible lesions in her lips. She also did not have any piercings. During the shower, she performed unprotected oral sex on me for about a minute (or less). We later moved to the bed where she gave me another 20 seconds of oral. I did not give her oral at all and we had a very short vaginal protected sex (I was almost ready to come, so the vaginal only lasted a few weak thrusts). I was concerned for STIs as I am married. Exactly one week after the encounter (last Friday) I dropped by an STD clinic to check. Unfortunately they were only treating patients with symptoms that day so I only got a pep talk and was asked to do a pee sample to test for gonorrhea. They say test results in a week but based on the encounter the doctor said STI was extremely unlikely from one blowjob encounter. As he hurried me off I forgot to tell him I've been getting a (comes and goes) nagging pulling feeling in my lower abdomen near my bladder down to my penile area, even though I did not have any of the regular symptoms (ie no pus/discharge, no burning or tingling feeling at tip of penis, no swollen testicles). I am not sure if I got it from pulling something in yoga class or if I got an infection. If it's not an STI would I have gotten an NGU or a GU? Or UTI? Or bladder infection? Or is it anxiety as it comes and goes? But when the pulling feeling occurs it feels very real and there is a little pain.
By way of background, I've felt this before on occasion, like a string from my navel to my penis, and googling shows that other people have felt the same way and it's not STI related, but for me it usually only lasts for a few seconds and not over a week like now. Am I being paranoid? Thanks for the response!View Thread
Sorry as an add on, it's been 13 days and I am asymptomatic. So either I don't have it or I have it and it hasn't shown yet, or I have it and asymptomatic. Since MOST gonorrhea symptoms in men show within 2-10 days I can assign a <50% chance I have it and hasn't shown yet. If I had it and asymptomatic, the chances of that are >60% based on various studies I found online. So at this point is my probability down to half of 0.5% or 0.025%? I am most concerned about gonorrhea I think. chlamydia is almost never transmitted this way and given the time of year and no visible oral sores i will also rule out herpes. The only other things are NGU and HPV, but it seems unlikely?
I know probabilities are not very useful but it sure helps alleviate some of the stress!View Thread
Thanks again. Just wondering, what are the chances of acquiring something like gonorrhea? Just some quick googling showed in the US on average about 1-2% of prostitutes have STDs. Let's say for simplicity's sake that that's too low and the actual number is 5%. Based on this question here: (http://www.medhelp.org/posts/STDs/Oral-Sex---Gonorrhea-Chlamydia/show/479168) the chance of getting gonorrhea is less than 10% through oral if it's known she has it. So does that mean a single act of receiving oral is 0.5% chance of getting it (10% x 5%)?View Thread
Thanks. I think it's just anxiety as it usually goes away when I don't think about it. A separate question....my wife says I'm been emitting a weird scent lately. Maybe it's coz my appetite isn't good due to my worrying? Or I haven't been drinking a lot of water? But I also read that people with STDs, especially gonnorhea also emit foul odors. Am I reading too much into this? Thanks!View Thread
