Hi I'm wondering can the constant urge to pee that being the only symptom be possibly an std? The urge to pee in all day for 4 days now. Happened 2 days after this incident. I'm a male who received oral from a woman with a condom on. And no I'm nervous I've caught something. I'm trying very hard not to stress
Hi I have not heard of having the urge to pee as being a symptom of an STI. As most STI do not show symptoms I would recommend going for a test if you are concerned about an STI being passed to you. The sex you described wouldn’t pass an STI to your urethra or urinary tract as it was covered by a condom. If you go to a clinic just describe the symptoms you are having and ask for an STI test....

You can go to any clinic to request this blood test. The HSV-IgG is a non-type specific HSV test which can be done for... Read Full Answer
I had protected sex with a prostitute. It was my first time. I inserted my penis into her vagina twice for 5-6 seconds and when I realised I was ejaculating I pulled out. I'm very worried if I've contracted STDs like HIV. Please help me out. Should I test for HIV?
If you were wearing a condom before you had any vaginal contact and you still had the condom on after you pulled your penis out and there were no tears or holes in the condom, then this is considered protected sex against HIV and other STI's. If you are sexually active then the recommendation is for you and your partners to test regularly for STI's so that you know your own status. Regular... Read Full Answer
