Full of anxiety
Posted on: 08/20/2007
I received unprotected oral sex for a few seconds about 5 weeks ago. Since then I have been postive about catching an std, one becuase of the real possibility and two because of my mind going crazy because of my stupidity. Since, I have had an area at the base of my penis that is a light shade of red, undetectable by 2 of the 3 doctors I've seen. Negative tests for clamidia and gonnorea. 1 dr. said use 1% cortizone, another said not to. I've used it for a few days no improvement. Also have a sore throat and neck. I don't know what to do and I'm fully of anxiety. Please help! Thank you.
I am sorry that you are experiencing so much anxiety, and I have to say that the chances that you got a sexually transmitted infection with such little contact are really tiny, so you can relax. If you cannot, then I think it would be a good idea to find a counselor to talk with about everything in life - it does a world of good sometimes just to let things out. Good luck!
