Thanks for your question. Yes, discharge from your penis and pain when urinating are symptoms of an STI. (I’ll mention for others reading this – it’s also possible to have an STI without any noticeable symptoms.) We would recommend you go to an STI clinic as soon as possible to get an exam, testing and treatment. Many clinics will treat you right away based on these symptoms, so that you won’t have to wait for test results before you get treatment and start to feel better. You can use our clinic finder app to find a clinic near you in BC.
I’m sorry to hear you had a condom break – usually, using lubricant with a condom will help prevent this. I appreciate that sometimes it is difficult to use a condom once you are in the “heat of the moment”. Some people find it makes a big difference to make sure they have condoms with them when they might be having sex, and to have the safer sex conversation in advance. Like most things in life, having safer sex gets easier with practice!
