I noticed it like A month ago don’t have any burning when i pee. I did have slight discomfort in my genital area but that’s no longer there. My sexual encounter was in December
Urologist: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 1 month ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The condition you are having is likely to be inflammation of vein or superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis.
It is not STD.
Outllook is usually good.
If you feel any pain, you may need analgesics.
Analgesics with antiinflammatory actions like ibuprofen can be taken.
This usually lasts for 3-4 weeks, but sometimes it can last longer.
As it is continuing for a month, I would advise to take an examination by your doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you sir im tryin to research the symptoms of that and see if theyre similar to mine. My symptoms made me think i had an STD but i didn’t understand why it was Lasting for so long. Especially Bc it seemed to happen right after the sex
Urologist: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 1 month ago

You are always welcome.
STD would cause rash, ulcer, burning urine etc.
Engorgement of vein is unlikely from it.

During sex there can be trauma too causing the swelling.
