General STI check-up

Resolved Question:

Hi there,

I am a 19 year old male and am sexually active. I have a girlfriend who I just recently lost my virginity to. She wasn't a virgin before We had sex but she has been STI tested and it's all clear. Just wondering if it would be a good Idea for me to go to my GP and get my penis checked out? A general check up to make sure everything is working all okay and a STI check as we'll?

Thank you

I can provide an image if you would like.

Hello,

Thank you for choosing DoctorSpring

Yes, if you had unprotected sex it will be a good idea to have a STD screening test. But if the sex was with condoms, then there is no need for testing. Regarding a Physical examination, do you have any lesion / rashes / swelling on your penis ? Id so you can attach a picture as a followup.

If there are no lesions / rashes / blisters then just a physical examination will not give any clue. So that is not really necessary.

Hope this helps
You can reply as a followup
Thank you

No expert!

In that case it is unlikely that you have an STD. But feel free to send few images. I will be glad to give my opinion. But please note, this will not be a substitute for a STD screening. Thank you
