Recently I have been experiencing a stinging or pulsating

Customer Question

Hello doctor, recently I have been experiencing a stinging or pulsating pain in the head of my penis. Also all around the opening of the urethra it is red and irritated. I was concern thinking it was an STD like chlamydia, since I have engaged in unprotected oral sex, and became more worried when I heard that chlamydia can affect my fertility whenever I decide to have children in the future. I decided to test for it and the results came back normal. However I am still unsure what has caused this irritation in my urethra and since the test I have been worrying that perhaps I have something else like NGU. Does NGU cause fertility problems like chlamydia?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The irritation is from the oral sex itself from friction.

Not likely infection.

You can repeat the tests after 2 weeks if symptoms still persistent.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I have not had unprotected oral sex in a while now. Given I do not have chlamydia, should I be concern about fertility problems in the future?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

Your fertility will not be affected.

Do not worry.

I appreciate everything doctor, but what if I have NGU? I've heard that aside from chlamydia, there are other bacteria that cause NGU. Can these other bacteria cause fertility problems?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

No they do not.

And you can get treated with doxycycline to clear up any infection.
