This is not a sign of any STD

In fact, mild trauma to the pubic bone, during sex, can cause this symptom.

Many people will have some pain when they press on their pubic bone, normally.

It is not a normal place to press.

I suggest you simply have an exam.

That said, unprotected sex is a problem, and you did not know the person.

You therefore are going to need HIV testing at some point.

I would also suggest a hepatitis screen.

Other STD testing depending on symptoms or not.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here

There is a little weird sort of sensation (no pain though) on my penis which I feel randomly, also kind of unusual but feel constipated today which could also be due to lack of sleep, I think it was last Friday the 3rd when I had sex and this pain has just started since yesterday, for the tests related to HIV and STD's when should I get these tests done as I read that HIV will not show up until 2 weeks and could take as long as 1-2 years to report in the tests
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 4 months ago.

No, you can get an HIV at 3 weeks. RNA test.

It will be accurate.

YOu should have a urethra swab now for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, although I doubt you have these.

Positive rating please.

Come back as needed.

can I get the RNA test now itself, and if negative then do I need to repeat this test again after some time or I can be sure that I don't have it
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 4 months ago.

You can get it at 3 weeks.

you don't need to repeat it.

Positive rating please: have not seen that.
