    Urinary System Problems

    For the past few months I’ve been experiencing frequent urination. I believed this to be related to a possible STI due to the fact that I had an intimate encounter with an unknown woman. I used protection but I was still concerned. The encounter happened approximately 20 months ago. I am now in a serious relationship and I made the unfortunate mistake of being intimate 2 months ago before being checked. I went to my local clinic and presented my symptoms of genital itching and constant urination. They diagnosed me with balanitis and prescribed me fluconazole. I was initially feeling much better due to the fact that my std test and urinalysis came back negative. However about 15 days ago I started feeling genital soreness and I visited the ER. They ran a urinalysis and sonogram on my testicles but didn’t find anything concerning. Again my urinalysis was negative for any bacteria or infection. My genital soreness has slightly subsided but sometimes I feel the discomfort on my penis or testicles. At times I have also experienced a feeling like I’m sitting on a ball. However when I check I don’t see any signs of inflammation anywhere. I’m currently waiting to visit a urologist but my primary doctor is baffled by my symptoms. He believes it may be due to anxiety. However the other thing that worries me is that my current girlfriend has experienced blisters in her pubic area. The first 3 blisters were all apart from one another and they showed about 1 month after our first sexual encounter. They healed in about 10 days but just last week she had 1 more blister pop up. I don’t believe it’s due to ingrown hairs as she doesn’t shave. The blisters are not clustered and since the last blister that appeared alone she hasn’t had any new symptoms. She says she feels fine but she has yet to visit a gynecologist. I trust that I wouldn’t have caught anything from her and that I must have infected her, but my test all show that I’m negative for HIV, trich, ghonorrhea, chlamydia, hsv2, and syphillis. I’m deeply concerned that I’ve introduced something very serious into our relationship and I need some clinical advice to ease my mind.

    RE: Urinary System Problems

    Hi I think you doctor has got you the right answer, anxiety and stressing over you past sexual encounter, instead of saying to yourself great me and my little chap had sex and lets look for the next one, no you have been stressing all this time.

    Stress will do this to you, stress will kill you if you let it, if you drink a lot your urinate a lot, its the way it works.

    Try getting into some meditation to help get you over your anxiety and stress it will help you if you let it, google anxiety and meditation, and have a read through that, best if you find a local group to teach you the art of meditation.

    Found these forums late and sure you have probably resolved this by now. On the off chance you have not, and for others browsing, what your describing is a prostate issue. Also frequent urination is not a physical symptom of any STI.
