I was with someone last Thursday.

What are your symptoms?

Are you exposed to unsafe sex?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
We didn't have penetrative sex. She touched me with her hand and made me climax that way.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
However, I have had a slight achy left testicle since then.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
And im really concerned I might have caught something.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It was sex that I also paid for, if you see what I mean?

Thanks for the additional information.


I am writing the answer for you and will get back to you in 5 minutes. If you get a phone call request, you may ignore it as that is an automated site trigger. Thank you.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Okay, thank you.

This is highly unlikely to cause the transmission of any STI.

The achy testes can be due to some injury to the scrotum during handjob (when she masturbated you).

You may take Ibuprofen for 2-4 days and this will likely resolve the pain. Plenty of fluids also will help.


Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Okay, thank you - that's a relief.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
So, hopefully the testes pain should go away in a few days?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Also, I suffer from anxiety and depression.
Is there any chance the anxiety I'm feeling from the experience is exaserbating the pain?

You are very welcome.

In all likelihood, it would go away in 3-4 days.

Anxiety is aggravating the pain.

Please relax which will help in early resolution.

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.
