Several ideas: I'll assume you've actually had herpes then? So was it pain? Tingling? And you didn't mention discharge so we'll rule that out. You can have a urine test for chlamydia and gonorrhea (but the gonorrhea would def have made you have a discharge). Chlamydia on the other hand can be silent or very very mild in guys. Can't rule out herpes either..It has a broad range of how it can express.
