    Concerned about contamination of a urine sample for STD testing

    I recently went to a sexual health clinic and was asked to produce a urine sample. On opening the lid of the urine sample container, my thumb slipped and accidentally touched the inside of the lid. It was a little graze either. My thumb made full contact with the inside of the lid. Before screwing the lid on the sample, I asked the nurse if I could get a new lid because of potential contamination. She said it would be fine. However, I don’t believe the nurse gave my concern much thought and was probably....

    Latent syphilis transmission

    Hi! I received oral sex from a previous partner. They have had a set of tests done which has come back positive for syphilis. I had a set of tests done (both urine and bloods) 2/3 weeks after the event, which came back negative for any signs of infection. Should I be worried?

    Strange bulge just under penis glans (painful to touch)

    Hi there, I am 19 years old, never had sex but have done other intimate acts with a partner, however, not recently so I would not think this is a cause. A couple of days ago I noticed a strange lump on the right side of the shaft, just under my penis head which is slightly painful to touch but other then that it’d go unnoticed. What makes it harder is that I do have Phimosis, so I cannot investigate at the cause under the foreskin. Any ideas at what it could be, I am planning on visiting a doctor....

    Potential balanitis

    Hi guys, I’m 17 years old (18 in a few months) and I’ve had a rash around the base of penis glans for about a year now and had some discomfort while urinating ages ago, with a slight bit of scarring on my glans but have been too embarrassed to go see a doctor and get a proper diagnosis. Ive only had sex once and it was protected with another virgin, so I thinks it’s close to impossible that it’s an std. I’ve been using an anti fungal cream (chlotrimazole) for a while now and I have seen an improvement....

    Is it really HSV-2?

    Hello WebMDers, This is my first post on this message board, and today, I would like to ask about my conditions, as well as my sexual practices from today on. Back on October 1st, I started having high fever and pain in my throat, particularly on my tonsils. It rapidly developed into mononucleosis with pus pockets and white linings present on both of my swollen tonsils. After lab-testing a sample of my tonsil's tissues, the diagnosis determined that it was Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 (HSV-2)....

    Skin tag/moles or wart

    So I’ve had a bump for a few years on the base of my shaft that I asked a Dr previously if it was anything to worry about, he said no it looks fine. In the last 2 months it seems like it’s gotten a little bigger and if I’m not dreaming a bit itchy, and another one showed up a couple inches up toward my stomach. Went in for a checkup assuming they were warts and he looked quickly then assured me that’s not what they look like, they’re definitely moles/ skin tags and not to worry. Doing my own research....
