I have tingling in my penis but no discharge or pain what so ever. I had unprotected oral sex about a week and a half ago.

Thank you for this, it's put my mind at ease as I have been in a panic for days. It just suddenly came on but like I said no discharge or burning when peeing
That is very reassuring.Do not worry.Best wishes

What would you say it is then?
This is likely nerve irritation related and anxiety driven.There are fine nerves supplying your urethra and penile skin.Oral sex can irritate them and you get tingling sensation.Infection is not the cause.This will improve gradually in a week or so.

The oral sex was over a week ago though and the symptoms only started 3 days ago.
That is still possible if you did any masturbation in between.I will suggest the STD testing as well for further reassurance.

No that's brilliant, I did masturbate a few days later.I also have a slight bulging disc in my back that flares up from time to time. Related?
That can also be related --nerves from sacral spine do supply the penile area.Best wishes

Thank you very much for your help, it really had put my mind at ease. I was convinced it was an std which quite frankly would have ruined my life in so many ways
Very welcomeDo not worry.

Hi, following on from these questions I've now started feeling "wet" in the area but I'm bone dry. Still no obvious discharge though. It feels like pee has dribbled out but it hasn't.
Do not worry that is not suggestive of any infection.

Hi, urine test came back negative but I'm wondering if they are wrong. I've now got a small amount of discharge which is just like pretty cum coming out. It's clear and sticky. I also still have the tingling feeling in pens
Urine tests are very sensitive. As you are having the symptoms for a while, any test would have come back positive by now.Negative tests are very reassuring --rules out any infection.The discharge and tingling are not likely infection related.Excessive urethral secretion and nerve irritation likely explanation.
