Do you have discharge from the penis or burning when you urinate?

No just the aching
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 2 years ago.
Because of the history of unprotected sex, you need to be can concern that this may possibly be a testicle infection called orchitis. You need to get into see your doctor to have a urine culture done and STD testing. You may need to be placed on a course of antibiotics to treat the pain. You can take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen to decrease the pain as well. Hope this helps.
