Well ive noticed a dull ache (not very painful but just there) in my testicles, lower back and lower abdomen for about a week. I had unprotected oral sex about 5 weeks prior to this and was worried that this might be the cause? Or could it just be a virus as i have just returned from holiday? im not really sure whether to go and get tested or not can anyone help?

Re: confused..

A number of men have reported vague problems following unprotected sex. Some doctors think it is in the head when they can't find any signs of an infection, but I think too many men get it who have no reason to feel guilty, though I, too, am at a loss as to what it is. Definitely get checked out, but don't be surprised if the doc cannot find anything wrong. Over time, the symptoms do seem to improve when nothing is found.

On second thought, you may have a simple case of epididymitis, which is curable with antibiotics. The major cause of this in younger men, though, is untreated chlamydia, though it can be caused by non-STD bacteria. Again, see a doctor for treatment.

Re: confused..

Well i have noticed some inflamation in the tubes leading to my testicle and the pain seems to be coming from there, so i think your second diagnosis sounds more plausable. Nevertheless im going to try and book an appointment tomorrow morning and will let u all know how i get on.
