Ok, Friday 27th July - I had unprotected sex with this girl, which is a huge slip up on my part as I'm usually really careful. Afterwards, I was pretty wiped out so went to sleep without showering.

A couple of days later, I had some penis irritation [uncircumcised] - reddish patches, white smegma like buildup etc. My friend told me I might have thrush, so I borrowed some cream from her which cleared up the external irritation within a day or two but I'm still using the cream as the pack says to use it for a couple of weeks.

Maybe four days ago, I noticed a slight discharge from my penis but thought it was ok as I read that was another symptom of thrush. However, within the past couple of days, it's started to burn when I pee. I know that's a thrush symptom too, but why so much later than the rest?? Should I keep applying the cream for another week?

I'm starting to majorly worry I might have chlamydia, as a lot of the symptoms I've read for that match those for thrush. And then this morning, I notice what looks like a single drop of blood in my urine...maybe from straining to go, or a UTI accompanying the thrush/chlam?

Im going to my GUM clinic on tuesday, but I would really appreciate any advice you might have, or any insight into what I have!!

Thanks.

Brad,

You're doing the best thing possible by seeing a health care provider today. It's not a good idea to diagnose yourself because you could be wrong and treating it with the wrong medication can make it worse.

Please let me know how your appointment went - if you will. :)

hey so I went today, whether it was a UTI or a urinary tract infection the nurse said because the symptoms have lessened it's probably going away by itself but I got checked for urine and blood borne stds anyway - it was worth going to get everything checked out, put my mind at ease a little and has made seriously rethink some life choices!

Excellent! I'm glad you got it worked out.

Blood born STDs? Do you mean Hep and HIV?

Did you ever come to understand the cause of this infection?

If you don't try, then what's the point?
If you think you have a urinary tract infection, check your symptoms.
