I rubbed my penis on a vagina. 2 months later my testicles were sore went to the hospital and got tested for HIV and came back negative. ?

Not HIV or STD: Without actual penetration, there was no risk of HIV and a negative blood test at 2 months is virtually certain proof you were not infected (assuming a 3rd or 4th generation test). And heterosexually transmitted HIV is rare in Australia. No STD is likely from non-penetrating sex, certainly none that would cause pain in both testicles. Keep working with your doctors if your symptoms continue. ...Read more

After long periods of sex, my testicles become very sore and tender for a few hours. Why does this happen?

After long periods of sex, my testicles become very sore and tender for a few hours. Why does this happen?

"Blue balls": This happens to all guys who stay aroused for a long time without ejaculating or before they ejaculate. I believe it's caused by the overfull seminal vesicles pushing on the nerve that supplies deep-pressure sensation, but this isn't proved. The solution is ejaculation by any means. You'll learn how to manage this. Best wishes. ...Read more

Epididymitis or: Epididymo-orchitis is likely what you describe. You probably had an ultrasound scan, not a ct scan. Ask fr your money back if a ct scan was done, it would have been a mistake. The condition is usually treated with antibiotics for 14 days & activity should be kept to a minimum. Not surprising if ur still feeling sore. Check on the urine culture to insure you are on correct antibiotic if culture +ve. ...Read more

For the past two weeks one of my testicles has been slightly sore and sitting closer to my body. It used to sit lower than the other, now not.?

Sore testicle: A sore testicle should usually be checked. It could represent a bacterial infection, which should be treated, a kidney stone, which really hurts, the result of minor trauma/contusion to the testicle, or to a condition called idiopathic (i.e., the cause is unknown) orchalgia. Sometimes you can have a cyst in your scrotum which can cause pressure on one or the other testicle. ...Read more

My right testicle has been sore for three weeks. I saw my doctor two weeks ago about the soreness. He did not see an issue. Why is it still sore?

Epididymitis?: This could be epididymitis, which is inflammation of the epididymis. It can be caused by trauma or infection and can brew for several weeks. When you were looked at earlier, it could have still been early enough to not be caught. Worth a trip back to the doc for re-evaluation and possible treatment. In the meantime, a bag of frozen peas works wonders for testicular pain. ...Read more
