im in dallas and here is my situation:
had unprotected sex with my on again off again girlfriend
about three days later, it hurts when i pee at the tip. its a sharp pain that lessons as i begin to urinate. i also notice that the tip of the penis (urethral opening) seems kind of "sticky" (ie it is like there is something keeping it together even when i gently squeeze the opening). i have also noticed that around the opening, there is about a 1-1 1/2 cm red area that is sensitive to touch.
of course my mind thinks uti, gonorrhea, chlamydia or a rip in the opening.
so go to a doctor and get the test? My family practictioner is my "surprisingly" family doctor which I don't feel comfortable going to get a std test. While I understand patient doctor confidentiality, I still dont feel comfortable. Going to the county health department seems like a recipe for disaster.
Soooo ... basically, does anyone have any suggestions for how to go about getting a quality check up for my issue? Would calling a urologist and making an appointment work or does it have to be referred from a primary care physician?
