I had recently had protected sex (about 4 days ago as of tonight) but let the girl start to go down on me without a condom (yes i'm aware stupid...)She claims to be clean, and was recently tested and came back negative on everything, yet i have pain in my testicles when i sit down, it feels almost as if someone is slightly squeezing my testicle. Is this something i should be worried about or am I right in thinking i just bruised the area during sex?
Yes, finally somebody who has the same thing as me. Maybe not exactly the same thing but real similar. Anyway, I had sex unprotected and a couple of days later my testicles hurt like crazy every single day. I almost couldnt stand it. This was about a year and a half ago. Now, it comes and goes. It seems like it is going away ever so slowly.
Now, this pain sometimes comes into my testicles when I sit for a while. Like you said. Then it radiates out to my whole groin area and joints between my leg and groin area almost feeling like my lymph nodes are swollen, but they are not. Sometimes going down my legs.
I dont know what to make of it other than an STD, Herpes(mild), Gonnorrhea, Syphilis, or Chlamydia maybe, all are curable though except Herpes.
This sounds like epidydimitis, which is an infection and inflamation of the epidydimus (sp?), which is the collection of tubes behind the testicles that collect sperm, and where the sperm mature. When infected, this can cause massive testicle pain, like both of you are describing.
Its usually caused by a bacterial infection, sometimes from unprotected sex. The bacteria work their way in through the urethra opening at the tip of the penis, down through the urethra and eventually into the epidydimus. You need to see a doctor who will prescribe some heavy duty anti-biotics to clear it up. It usually doesn't get better by itself.
Could the travelling of the infection take as little as 24 hrs? Cause I didn't recall having any pain other than what felt like a bruise in the urethra and then now its a dull ache behind the right (more so than the left) testicle...So is it very likely that its Epyditimitis or whatever its called? Also could that pain go completely away, then come back throughout the day randomly? or is it more so sounding like a hernia? Also wouldn't my odds of getting it be rather slim seeing as it was unprotected recieved oral, i had gotten a blowjob and stopped within a minute....I'm still reallllly nervous
Also could i have the infection without discharge?

I just thought I'd create a reply rather than reedit my old one..It's now 3:14 in the morning and I can't sleep, the pain had'nt been bothering me until i went to lie down on my side then it started to ache then i rolled over onto my stomach and now it feels like someone is pinching my testicle and maybe the fleshy bit behind it like where the sac connects to the body is that indicative of a hernia, it sorta feels like something isn't right down their interms of a stretch or a tear, but at the same time it hurts in my testicle...**** i'm freaking out.... please someone reply.....

The flesh bit behind the testicle is the epidydimis. You're gonna have to see a doctor about this - the pain isn't likely to go away by itself. Don't worry about it - the doctor has seen thousands of penises and testes before, and I'm sure has treated many cases of epidydimitis before. If that's what you have - again, I'm assuming that's what you have based on your symptoms. Only a doctor who examines you can make that determination though.
i described the symptoms to the dr. and he said that its not epiditimitis due to the fact taht the testicles aren't inflamed neither is the tube and i'm not running a fever ...that its simply a rather serious groin strain injury which is manifiesting itself there....Lol who woulda thought, course that now makes my worrying seem really stupid..but i assure you it was warrented at the time.
So how is your pain now? Does it still hurt when you sit down? And no, I have never been tested for any STDs, but my wife of 1 year has for immigration. She came back clean for everything. The only thing she wasnt tested for was Herpes. Its not mandatory. Thats why I think I have Herpes but not a bad strain.
How do you think you strained it?
