Received Unprotected Oral, Now Have Pain In Groin

I am a 20 year old male. Last Sunday I received unprotected oral from a girl. She told me she was clean, and looked so too. However, 3 days later (Wednesday), I felt mild feverish symptoms (weakness in fingers and joints and muscle soreness and also had stomach pain). I'm not sure if this was due to any infection or because of my anxiety over catching something, which caused me to eat poorly and worry for 3 days straight.

Then, Wednesday night my groin started tingling and Thursday the tingling became a soreness that has stayed with me until today. So for the past 4 days my groin has felt a burning sensation/sorenss. At times it feels swollen, but other times it feels normal. After eating or drinking the pain increases, and goes down after urination. Along with the groin pain, I also feel sa pain in my lower abdomen.

Is this most likely by an infection? if so, which one is most likely? I have no symptoms on my penis or testicles.


Hi scared,

While you can get an STD from oral sex I suspect that what you are describing is nerves. If you have major concerns you can see your doctor but usually an STD does not come on this quick.

One of the STD's one can get from oral sex is herpes but what you describe sounds nothing like that.

Chlamydia can also possibly be transmitted through oral sex but it isn't very common. And too there is this information from Health Scout: "If symptoms occur, they usually appear within 1 to 3 weeks after exposure." Here are the symptoms: "In men, chlamydial infections cause about 40 percent of the cases of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), an inflammation of the urinary tract. The most common symptom of NGU is a discharge of mucus or pus from the penis. Some men also notice pain when urinating. Pain or swelling in the scrotal area may be signs of epididymitis, an inflammation of a part of the male reproductive system located near the testicles. Up to 50 percent of men have no symptoms."

I am not a doctor so I can't say what your symptoms mean but I would guess, as I said, that you are just very nervous.

And too..."looking clean" has absolutely nothing to do with STD's or predicting who has one.

If you are still worried...go see a doctor.

Thank you for your question.
