Possibly: Any time there is question of whether a skin lesion on the penis is an std, it must be seen and evaluated. Not all skin lesions are std's but visual inspection is very important in addition to clinical history. Also, some skin lesions may resolve spontaneously and are an std, making one believe that everything is okay.If there is a chance it may a sexually contracted lesion, it needs to be checked.

Maybe. : Have your doctor look at it to determine if its an std, another problem, or a normal penile pearl.

A 39-year-old member asked:

Is it possible to get pregnant if his penis does not enter my vagina?

Yes: The only requirement to achieve pregnancy is for sperm to reach the ovulated egg. Genital contact can still lead to pregnancy even in the absence of penetration if ejaculation occurs near the vaginal opening.

Needs to be examined: This sounds like a congenital problem. Needs to be examined to determine if a previous circumsion has created scar tissus that needs removal. The urologist will be able to make a very quick determination if this is a surgical problem.

A 19-year-old female asked:

What can cause a foul odor in urine, thats not an std?

Bladder infection: Foul-smelling urine can come from a bladder infection or even from certain foods that we eat. Stds do not usually effect the bladder and i wouldn't think they are responsible for the foul-smelling urine. More than likely it is from a bladder infection. Vaginal infections can sometimes have an odor as well and may be difficult to distinguish from odor caused by urine.

Jock itch: Sounds more like a tinea infection. U should keep the area clean and dry. Don't rub or scratch as it makes the rash worse. Heat n sweat r not good. Otc anti fungal powder/ cream can be tried.
